There are so many types of business phone systems and solutions available in the market today. You’re probably wondering what we are talking about. Let us break it down for you.

A business phone system refers to a multiline telephone system, typically used in business environments. They come with a host of handy features such as call transferring, conference calling, call metering and accounting, private and shared voice message boxes, and so much more to elevate business communication and enhance your overall productivity.

Business phone systems may also refer to a network of a few standard-issue telephones that are typically used in small business office setups to also full-fledged, complex ‘Private Branch Exchange’ (PBX) systems that are generally utilized by large businesses.

Modern-day business phone systems can function over the ‘Public Switched Telephone Network’ (PSTN) and also over the internet (VoIP). 

However, the most popular, feature-rich and cost-effective business phone systems today are delivered as a hosted service, typically known as a centrex. These solutions offered by premium service providers such as CallHippo do not require you to invest in expensive and complicated hardware and equipment.

Unified communications systems integrate various modes of business communication. They go above and beyond traditional phone calling, by offering a host of features such as audio conferencing, video conferencing, instant messaging, online faxing, and text messaging, to streamline and automate all your business communication processes.

In a technologically advanced work environment, business phone systems have gradually emerged as an indispensable tool to advance business growth, particularly for small businesses.

Service Mobility:

1. Low cost per call:

A VoIP telephone system utilizes Internet Protocol to make calls. 

Placing calls over traditional phone lines means that a line is taken up by the two callers using it to communicate. Since there are only so many lines that can be installed, calls placed over landlines, especially if they are long-distance, are expensive. But using the Internet to relay call data circumvents this problem, making domestic and long-distance calls cheaper overall.

2. Service mobility: 

If your business is on-the-go, VoIP services can be a tremendous benefit to you because they will follow you wherever you go.

With a VoIP business phone system all the hassles associated with a traditional phone system are eliminated. 

Since there are no physical limitations, you have the freedom to move as your business demands without any added stress.

3. The versatility of features:

.Using VoIP phone systems allow you to multi-task with the most tech-savvy devices, allowing you to be the most productive you can be.

Suppose you are on a call within a queue. While you are waiting, you can strategize your approach to client calls you have missed as you read voicemail-to-text transcriptions that are sent directly to your email inbox.

In other cases, you can forward messages and voicemails easily. If you receive an important message in a voicemail, you can forward that voicemail to three other people at the click of a mouse.

In short, VoIP telephone systems grow with your business.

4. Simple conference calls:

It’s possible to take part in conference calls if your business uses a traditional phone system, but what you will find is that you will have to pay for an additional service to host multiple callers for a conference. These services are native to many VoIP phone systems. Instead of paying for something extra, you can take advantage of the ability to make conference calls as an added benefit to the service you already pay for.

Not only that, but VoIP services make video conferences much easier as well

5. Efficient client Interaction:

With a VoIP phone system, you can choose where your calls ring and how. For instance, you might select the first few rings to be forwarded to your office. If you don’t answer the call, it will then be transmitted to a second or third device, say, mobile phone, or laptop. Quite simply, calls don’t need to be missed anymore if they are urgent.

Important documents that need to be forwarded no longer have to wait for either way. Using VoIP, business associates can e-fax their documents instead of waiting for a day (or several) to get to a fax machine.

6. Reliable:

A common worry that surfaces about VoIP are the fact that if the internet stops working, so does the ability to make calls. This doesn’t have to occur under the right circumstances. The truth is that call-forwarding, like other features in VoIP phone systems, is incredibly flexible.

The capability to choose where your calls are forwarded, and how, means that you also don’t have to lose productivity because of local power outages or weather-related events. If the office phone can’t be answered, your mobile device or laptop can.


Chunky phones, tangled wires, and astronomical phone bills have now become a thing of the past with the advent of VoIP-based business phone systems. All you need is a stable internet connection and an internet-enabled device and you’re all set!
