What is Cloud-based Phone Calling?

Calling over the internet

Cloud-based phone calling allows you to make phone calls using a virtual phone system, which is not physically located in your enterprise. This new, flexible and reliable way of calling is growing in popularity, both with SME’s and big enterprises.

There are many uses of cloud-based phone calling. The most commonly used are VoIP, calling through smartphone applications or a softphone. This way, cloud-based phone calling enables you to call from more than one fixed location, using the same phone number. At work, at home, on the road or at a remote office, you are always using the same phone system and therefore the same business phone number.

How does cloud-based phone calling work?

To use cloud-based phone calling you don’t need on-premise servers for your phone system. Within your company, you only use phones or other devices that are connected to the internet (IP-phones). The actual phone system will be installed on the WimNet servers or our partners’ servers.

Benefits compared to a traditional phone system

Classical phone systems are notorious for their lack of flexibility and from time to time unreliable communication. On top of that, the configuration and installation of a classical phone system can cause quite some challenges.

Cloud-based phone systems, on the other hand, offer many benefits for your business, compared to traditional phone systems:

1. Quick Start

A virtual phone system is being configured much faster compared to a traditional phone system.

2. Scalability

Your virtual phone systems grows easily along with the size of your business.

3. Flexiblity

All branches of your enterprise, just as employees working from home, are using one and the same system. Besides that, you can integrate your smartphone or tablet with the virtual phone system. Cloud-based phone systems are also easy to integrate with your CRM of choice. From now on you are available wherever you are on your business phone number, as long as you have access to the internet.

4. Uptime

Thanks to equipment redundancy we provide an increased uptime. Multiple servers, operating on different geographical locations, serve as a backup for each other. Because of this, your phone system is nearly always up and running.

5. Total Control

Depending on the system or the configuration of it, there are online platforms available for the end-user. We are here to help you choose for the best solution for your business.

6. Lower costs compared to a classical phone system

Lower setup costs are guaranteed because you no longer invest in the purchase and configuration of your own phone system.

Besides that, each month, you only pay for the number of users that you actually need.

Furthermore, maintenance costs are thing of the past. We warrant the maintenance, management, and security of the infrastructure for the phone system.

Lastly, you call at lower rates when using the internet, both for national and international phone calls.
