Quick Summary

Hosted VoIP makes it easier than ever to stay in contact and collaborate, whatever the device, wherever you are. Here are 5 ways VoIP helps collaboration.

Have you ever had to have a conference call, but not been in the office? Had to have a group call with potential clients halfway across the country? One of the benefits of a hosted VoIP service is that it's far easier for businesses to collaborate across different locations. All without needing any technical knowledge for the setup process.

Easy conferencing with your Cloud PBX

One of a hosted VoIP service's key strengths lies in its ability to easily create conference bridges for holding virtual voice and video meetings with colleagues. Voice conferences are fully customisable, so it's possible to add and change on-hold audio to perfectly reflect your brand. The ability to define permissions and add security PINs makes for a versatile, secure meeting place for both team discussions and remote client meetings.

Hosted VoIP is quicker than email

We've all had the experience of swapping emails with colleagues, only to pick up the phone for easier communication. Voice is a much faster communication solution than email and it is often easier to have a conversation with a team member or client over the phone, rather than via time-consuming email exchanges.

Be adaptable, bring your own device

Hosted VoIP is a really active driver of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend. This is the process of bringing your own laptop, tablet or phone to work or do business on. Due to its versatility, hosted VoIP ensures employees can use the device they're most comfortable with in the office or at home. Giving employees this choice boosts their sense of autonomy and responsibility and, often, their enjoyment of the job! This is a solution not limited to offices and homes, but one that can be utilised in colleges or universities also, to enhance group collaboration.

Hosted VoIP is a friend of remote working

Due to its adaptability, VoIP services empower remote and home workers. Whether someone is working from home or another office, they can still be a part of the same office phone network. Incoming calls to the office can be received via an employee's VoIP phone or, if preferred, their softphone at home too. Similarly, they can dial out from home as if they were in the office. With Video Calling and Conferencing, it's also easy to ensure that remote workers don't feel isolated from the office environment. So, in terms of team collaboration, a VoIP phone system provides a seamless workflow for flexible workers. With the line blurring between employees in the office and those working remotely, your organisation can enjoy a more integrated and collaborative working environment.

Limitless VoIP calling between users

Top of the line VoIP providers will enable free calls between users on the same account. For a business owner, this means that call costs between teams are greatly reduced. With no extra costs, you can encourage calls between team members, whether they are in the same office or not.

VoIP phone systems offer instant setup and scalability for whatever situation your business finds itself in. With numerous other features such as call monitoring providing enhanced collaboration capabilities, hosted VoIP is a practical and efficient aide making team collaboration a cinch!
