More and more businesses turning to VoIP phones to beat the recession

More and more organisation are utilising VoIP solutions in order to beat the recession, according to leading business telecoms e-tailer Big Box Distribution.

For the un -initiated, VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol is a means of utilising the internet as a means of delivering voice calls. This can lead to significant cost savings, when compared to using traditional telephone networks. According to recent reports, more and more businesses are looking to VoIP phones as they look to cut telecoms costs, in the face of a worsening economic climate.

Writing on, Ian Williams explains that the recession, coupled with the growing availability of super -fast broadband connections is leading to increased adoption of VoIP phones:

"As the economic situation worsened over the course of the year, companies sought ways of maintaining close communications with branches and customers, while minimising the cost of travel and phone bills."

Big Box Distribution's Gary Basso commented on this news by saying:

"With the continuing downturn of the global economy, it is hardly surprising that businesses are increasingly looking at ways in which they can reduce spending. One way of doing this is by implementing VoIP telephone technology in lieu of traditional landlines networks."

He continued:

"In addition to VoIP telephones, we also have a range of wireless headsets and video and audio conferencing equipment, which can help organisations to ensure that they have effective means of communication at all times."
