There are plenty of reasons why businesses need to move out of their current space. Maybe you need more space or are downsizing. Moving your entire office can be a very complicated process but having a VoIP business phone system you can make this process a lot easier. With legacy phone systems, you have to go through the hassle of disconnecting the phone lines and then transferring them to your new location. This is not only a massive headache, but it can be costly as well. By reading on, you can learn how VoIP can make your move easier.
Don’t Have to Wait for Technicians
When you have an older, more traditional phone system, you have to go through an entire process to move. You need to contact the provider, then arrange your phone lines to be migrated to your new location as well as other necessary hardware. Sometimes you’re lucky and this process only takes a day. Sometimes this can take up to a week or more. Then, while this entire process is going on you will have an interruption of service that can negatively impact your business.
This isn’t an issue that you have to deal with when it comes to VoIP. The only thing that you need to wait for is the internet to be installed, then you can just connect your phones. There’s no need to have a technician from Telecom2 to come out and install anything. This reduces your downtime and allows you to get back to work quicker.
Don’t Have to Change Your Number
You spent a lot of money on your marketing materials. You don’t want to have to reprint everything because you now have a new number. There may be some instances that when you use a legacy phone system, you aren’t able to keep your number when you move. This can also have a negative impact on your business. You will then have to change all of your information on your website, marketing materials, and may need to even reach out to your customers about the number change. This is another hassle of the traditional phone systems.
However, VoIP allows you to keep your phone number no matter where you are moving to. Want to switch to a VoIP system when you move? You can get your business phone numbers transferred to your VoIP for a fee. The ease of this process will depend on your current phone provider. It could only take a few days or you could spend a few weeks with this process.
Keep Essential Employees
Are you relocating quite a distance away from your current location? If so, that may mean that you could potentially lose some of your important employees. These employees may not be able to or want to relocate. As a small business, losing these essential employees can be crippling for your business. The good news is that with a VoIP system, you don’t have to sacrifice your employees when you move. They can work from anywhere, using the VoIP system to make calls with the same number as the office, receive calls as if they were in the office, and access any voicemails.
Using a VoIP system is a great tool for your business, whether you are moving offices or not. If you do have to move for any reason, the great thing about a VoIP business phone system is that it can move with you without any major hassles. If you don’t already have a VoIP telephone system, getting a system with Telecom2 before you move can make relocation a lot easier for you. Moving to a new office is already an incredibly stressful process, with the planning the layout of the new offices and moving all of the furniture. You don’t need to make this process even harder on yourself because you have a legacy phone system that really doesn’t work for your business anymore.
