From tablets and laptops to smartphones, automated systems, and more, choosing the right tech for your business can be overwhelming.
Much of the new tech that comes along offers little in the way of improvement over previous systems.
New tablets offer a bit more storage or a higher screen resolution over previous models. A new automated system may promise to work faster than the old version.
But, every once in a while, a new tech comes along that completely revolutionizes the way you do business. That’s exactly what SIP phone service is doing.
SIP, or Session Initiation Protocol phones, also known as VoIP, or Voice Over Internet Protocol, phones are devices that allow for calling over internet service, rather than traditional phone lines.
With this features comes many other added benefits. SIP phones have tons of features traditional phones lack, and that can be utilized by businesses in any industry.
From streamlining business processes to cutting down on costs, recording records, protecting your business from fraud, and more, there are countless benefits of adding SIP phones to your business.
Keep reading to learn more about seven of these awesome features you could be enjoying.
1. Easy to Use Control Panel
With traditional phone lines, making any changes to your account is a challenge.
Say you want to add a phone line. You’d need to call the company that you purchase your phone service from.
This usually means calling during business hours, waiting for an available attendant, and then going through the process of explaining what you need and making your purchase.
There may also be a waiting period between when you place your order and when your new number becomes active.
But SIP.US’s simple control panel allows you to do all of this and more, right from your computer.
Add or remove a number. Make changes to your billing information. Change your service.
It’s fast, easy, and you won’t have to worry about getting placed on hold.
2. The Chance to Protect Your Employees
Whether you’re the only employee of your business, or one of the thousands, protecting your safety and the safety of your employees should always be a priority.
Nearly 3 million workplace injuries occur in the U.S. each year. While many of these occur in high-risk locations like warehouses and factories, they could occur in the average office as well.
When an emergency does strike, your SIP phone will be there to help.
That’s because SIP phones feature a nomadic 911 service. This means that you can add a physical address to your SIP phone. When that phone is used to dial 911, that address will be immediately visible to emergency services.
If you travel often for work, or if your office relocates, you can easily update this number.
3. Record Real-Time Phone Records and Data
Say goodbye to spreadsheets recording numbers and call-times.
Your SIP phone will automatically record call data, and store it for you right on your control panel.
You’ll be able to look up calls throughout your phone’s history quickly and easily, any time you need them.
4. Widespread DID Coverage
SIP.US offers both DID, or Direct Inward Dialing, and International DID in more than 40 countries around the world.
You can quickly and easily search our massive database, and order the numbers that you need.
Plus, you’ll receive most DID provisioned numbers instantly so that you can get to work right away.
If the numbers you want aren’t yet available, you can also back-order them, and receive them as soon as they become available in your area.
5. The Ability to Bring Your Own Bandwidth
Some SIP providers require you to use a certain broadband internet service provider. Not SIP.US.
You can bring your own internet provider, and continue to get your data directly from them, rather than routing it through us. You can even choose from cable, DSL, T-1, or Metro Ethernet.
This gives you a greater ability to shop around for a great deal on your internet connection, or to choose the connection that works best in your location.
6. A Simple Pricing Structure
Just as SIP.US helps you to save money by allowing you to bring your own internet connection, our service helps you save money as well.
You won’t have to sign a contract for our services, which means that you can cancel at any time. You’ll pay a flat rate each month that you can easily add or remove channels from.
You have enough tasks to worry about during the day-to-day operations of your business. That’s why we make paying for your SIP phone service simple and stress-free.
7. Fraud Protection
Statistics show that only 6.6 percent of all international calls made to U.S.-based businesses are legitimate. The remaining 93.4 percent of calls are fraudulent.
With traditional phone service, protecting your business from international fraud calls can be complicated. But with SIP service, it’s easy.
Our SIP systems automatically work to protect you from fraud.
When a fraud call is detected, our service takes immediate action to shut it down.
If our system detects that your equipment is compromised, it will automatically shut down your international trunk service, and alert you and our Network Operations Center.
