One of the major advantages of VoIP is that voice and data communications can be transmitted over a single network, which can save a lot of money in infrastructure costs. This is not to say that on every occasion switching to VoIP will save you any money at all, there is no simple formula that can be used to input numbers and get a quick result each business is analysed individually.
The smaller and less complex a company is the easier it is to identify any savings that can be made; working out any savings that can be made for larger companies would take more time to investigate but could be more profitable if done so.
Another saving would be on your energy bill as IP Phones draw power through the network cable there is no need to plug your phones into the mains power supply. This is one of the biggest features available with VoIP but will also reduce your energy costs. If you are not sure if VoIP is right for you there are 7 questions to ask before you move to VoIP:
