The Top 5 Best Business VoIP Providers of 2014, Ranked by VirtualPBXPhoneSystems.com

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/14 -- For a small business owner, it is important to not only save money, but to also provide exceptional customer service to clients and potential customers. While most cable and Internet providers do offer direct landlines, this service is generally expensive and is something needed to avoid as it is going to cost way too much money. Instead, opting for one of the business VoIP providers is going to be better. With the help of the business VoIP providers, users are able to receive exceptional phone service for a fraction of what would be paid with the cable or Internet company. Experts at VirtualPBXPhoneSystems.com recently put together a list of the top 5 business VoIP providers for 2014. For their list, the experts considered price, customer satisfaction, additional features and more. While there are dozens of different business VoIP providers out there, this is a list of the top five.

1. Vonage Business Solutions

There are three different business plans that are perfect for small to medium sized businesses. The first is a $14.99 plan plus $.03 per minute. The plan is good for a business that doesn't make a large number of phone call. The $39.99 plan is a multi-line unlamented plan that is the most popular and offers both unlimited inbound and outbound options. There is also a $14.99 virtual extension, which is for people who don't work in the office, but need to integrate phone calls from the office into their mobile device.

2. RingCentral Cloud Phone System

With RingCentral, there is access to three different service plans. The first costs $24.99 a month and comes with a free, 30 day trial, so a user can determine if they like the service or not (all three plans have this trial period). With the standard plan, customers receive unlimited calling, 1,000 toll free minutes, unlimited Internet fax, instant messaging and conference calling. There is also full integration with Microsoft Office along with a mobile application for a portable device. The Premium, $34.99 plan is the same, but comes with 2,500 toll-free minutes, Salesforce CMR integration, automatic call recording and premium support. Lastly, the Enterprise $44.99 plan offers 10,000 minutes, multipoint mobile and desktop HD video conferencing and online meetings.

3. Jive Communications

The second is $25.95 for 5-9 users; the third is $23.95 for 10-24 users. Tier 4 is $21.95 for 25-49 users and the fifth tier costs $19.95 per user when there are at least 50 different users.

4. Mitel

Mitel is another VoIP service provider that charges per phone, but it allows a user to alter and adjust what sorts of features they receive on each phone. There is the MiVoice service, which allows individuals to enjoy quality phone calls from their phones, a mobile enterprise, so calls can be made from mobile devices, plus a MiCollab Client feature, that allows the business to directly communicate through a video chat with their clients.
