Business VoIP- Phones for Small & Medium Businesses
Which Phone System Is Best for A New Business?
When you’re setting up new business or office there are a million and one things to think about; from staffing to your website. One of the biggest areas you need to get right straight away is communications. Both internal and external. A decent phone system and the benefits it brings should be one of the first actions on your agenda; VIP VoIP have some tips below on choosing the right system for your new business.
New Phones for New Businesses
First you will need to decide on what handsets your business needs, or indeed, of you need them at all.
Its common to have one main telephone handset, that can be used as your reception phone or main office line but with VoIP, handsets aren’t a necessity. So long as you have an internet connection and a headset, you and your employees can go totally handsfree and have more desk space.
Usually, your VoIP service provider will have a range of corded handsets for you to choose from, but you can get started by looking at some of this year’s best handsets here.
How Do I Get a Telephone Number for My New Business?
A new business needs a new telephone number. It’s one of the most important things that you sort out as soon as possible. Without a phone number, how will your customers get in touch? And of course, you will need your phone number to print on stationary, like business cards and to put on your website.
You will need to decide if you want a local telephone number for your business or a national number. Local telephone numbers are suitable for start ups that work in a small geographical area, but if you work nationwide and want to give a slicker impression, a 0845 or 0800 number would be a better option.
Here at VIP VoIP, that’s something we can help with; we are able to provision numbers from any area code of the country or allocate 08 numbers.

Is VoIP Too Expensive for a Small Business?
There is a misconception that Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is only worth considering for medium to large organisations. Possibly with multiple locations or a high volume of long-distance calls. The good news is that this isn’t true – thanks to the flexible nature of VoIP technology.
A VoIP system can accommodate all types of business, from sole traders to multinational corporations.
Don’t worry though, this is a common misconception about VoIP solutions; we actually busted the myth in this blog last year!
