SIP solutions have the upper hand on legacy Time-Division Multiplexing solutions that many enterprises still have. Here are some of many reasons you should consider migrating to SIP:
The first, and most obvious, is the cost savings. Many SIP partners will guarantee their customers a minimum of 30 percent savings before even learning of their current costs. Whether you’re an enterprise with thousands of employees or a startup looking to grow, those are serious savings. Just think of how you could spend that money in other ways to benefit your business.
SIP solutions also scale easily. Since no additional hardware or infrastructure is required to provision for SIP solutions, the process of scaling your SIP up or down is hassle-free. The steps involved are minimal, and usually require nothing more than a brief conversation with your SIP provider to specify how many additional lines you need. The top-tier providers even have a portal interface that allows you to make service requests online and monitor their statuses. Once the request is in your provider’s hands, your work should be done.
Finally, SIP is enabling employees to work more collaboratively, regardless of where they are. By utilizing SIP, you make it possible for your employees to access their business phone services while they are on the go. With voice now converged with video, messaging, and data over a single connection, employees are equipped to work from anywhere and at any time, increasing their overall productivity.
Frost and Sullivan’s Unified Communications and Collaboration Analyst, Michael Brandenburg, speaks highly of SIP technology and its possibilities: “Through SIP, organizations are able to adapt their communications infrastructure to match the requirements of new and existing business processes, rather than the other way around. The result is a highly agile set of advanced services that, in turn, enhance the agility of the entire organization.” By keeping your employees always connected, they can communicate more effectively and get more done.
