One of the most frustrating aspects of telephone service is that its costs can cut deeply into your profit margin, yet you can’t sacrifice quality to save money because reliable communication with clients and colleagues is vital.
But there is an answer. SIP trunks can help your business cut telephone costs without losing any of the quality or features your legacy telephony provides. What follows are a few keys ways SIP trunks save you money:
Reduce long distance charges: Using SIP trunks, which are essentially virtual phone lines, for business telephony lets you bypass the exorbitant rates that major carriers often charge. It even allows you to pay local rates for even international calls. This means substantial savings for businesses, especially those that operate in multiple markets and maintain geographically disparate offices.
Eliminate monthly charges: Again, working without a traditional service provider helps you cut costs. With SIP trunks you no longer have to fear the nightmare of opening a phone bill and being hit with unforeseen charges and fees; there are no arbitrary monthly fees with SIP trunking.
Merge voice and data: SIP trunks allow you to merge your data and voice networks, meaning you can pay for one service instead of two. All communications converge and are delivered through one pipe, which streamlines your infrastructure and reduces the amount of hardware you need to maintain.
Avoid unused capacity: With SIP trunks you purchase only the capacity you need, rather than bundles of phone lines, many of which go unused when call volume is not at its peak. With SIP trunks you pay only for what you use, as the infrastructure necessary to add capacity quickly is already in place.
