Here are the things that you need to keep in mind as you evaluate this version of business phone systems.
Anytime, anywhere access means employees carry their office along with them every time
1 - The modern trend is of the work is there, where the employee is, and modern-day staff is not bound by an infrastructure containing a table and two chairs, etc. This has got a lot of encouragement from services like pervasive Internet access and cloud-based technologies and software solutions. These technologies have helped them get access to their corporate e-mail address virtually from any part of the world.
2 - Similarly, business VoIP phone systems allow them to provide business contacts using a single phone number.
3 - Another feature is of simultaneous ringing that allows calls to ring at office phone, home phone and several other devices at the same time, so that there is nothing like "missed call".
4 - Unfortunately, if the call is missed and directed towards the voice message interface, the user don’t have to listen to the message as it will be sent on to email as an audio attachment.
All these features are assistive in increasing the overall productivity of the employees and save their time as well.
Minimized distractions improves productivity
A very remarkable feature of business VoIP phone systems is that incoming calls (that can distract employees) are managed because of the feature called "Do not disturb". What actually happens is that these calls are routed directly to the voice inbox and from there; the recorded messages are sent as audios to the email for later access.
