Business VoIP service providers

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is the transmission and reception of voice communication over the internet. It provides increased flexibility and control over your telephone system and is a cost effective and value-adding technology for businesses of all sizes. All that’s required is IP phones and an internet connection.

As one of the UK’s leading business VoIP service providers, Active offers bespoke hosted solutions that will deliver cost and service benefits with immediate effect.

What are the Benefits of VoIP?

The main benefit of VoIP is that it is significantly cheaper than a traditional telephony system. VoIP allows you to reduce the cost of calls, line rental and general maintenance by eliminating many of the fixed and variable costs associated with owning a phone line, and in many cases the calls themselves can be free. There are particular benefits for customers who make a lot of international calls, and calls to 0800, 0808 and 0500 numbers are still free, with calls to 0845 and 0870 numbers being cheaper than their landline equivalents.

VoIP offers extended functionality to a regular phone system including features such as call waiting, call forwarding, voicemail-to-email, anonymous and selective call rejection and a host of privacy features. Notably, it allows you to hotdesk or work on the move as it gives you the ability to forward calls to anywhere with an internet connection. There’s no longer any need to be in the office to answer the phone.

The perfect solution for a growing business, VoIP is easily scalable and allows the introduction of extra phone numbers and extensions without any need for additional physical lines. Everything can be managed online and there is none of the additional cost and hassle associated with traditional telephony.
