SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/07/14 -- Voice over Internet Protocol, more commonly known as VoIP is an online digital phone system. Callers make and receive phone calls via the internet rather than transmitting communications with a traditional phone which uses analog, a cable-based system. Due to the rapidly expanding and easily accessible high speed Internet, VoIP services are inexpensive and offer a wide range of features and applications that traditional phone services do not. The experts at VoipReview.org analyzed customer satisfaction, customer care packages, price, and add-on features in order to find you the best business VoIP providers of 2014. Each provider offers packages under $20/month, including different extensive plans that allow businesses to customize and choose the service that best fits their company's telecommunication needs.
Vonage (formerly Vocalocity) is known for best serving those with small to medium-sized businesses. A reliable business VoIP provider, Vonage is a cost-effective choice offering unlimited local and long distance calling with flat rates and no contracts. Vonage not only offers a low price and the scalability that growing businesses need, but they also have elaborate features included in every plan automatically.
Some of Vonage's business VoIP features include: a unified inbox for fax, email, and voicemail, call flip, voicemail transcription, and an award-winning dashboard interface, amongst many others. Their assistance to businesses teleworking and mobility at a low price is possible due to Vonage's investment in VoIP technology; they both own and develop everything they send. Vonage Business Solutions' business VoIP has helped lower costs by at least 30% for small businesses of 1 to 50 clients.
