How a VOIP Phone System Can Help You Save Money

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

VoIP phone systems are convenient and adaptable, making them an excellent choice for most company communication requirements. They have a number of advantages over traditional phone lines, including being more dependable and fast, with the capacity to handle large amounts of data transfer, especially with the rising construction of fibre around New Zealand.

The fact that VoIP can save money is perhaps the most compelling selling factor for many enterprises. Traditional telephones are inconvenient, inflexible, and expensive. We feel that VoIP is the way of the future for modern businesses and their internal and external communications.

Here are a few ways VoIP can help you save money.

It lowers the cost of hardware.

Traditional phones can be costly, especially when an entire call centre or sales staff is required to use them. VoIP systems are far less expensive in this aspect, and they only require a small amount of equipment.

With fewer pieces of hardware, less money is spent on maintenance and replacement. As more companies migrate their telephony to the internet and phone systems grow antiquated, there will be fewer professionals in the field and fewer parts available, driving increased maintenance expenses. A typical system will quickly become too expensive.

Standard desk phones can be used with VoIP, but softphones, which are essentially software that turns a computer into a phone, can also be used. The set up cost for softphones is minimal

It reduces the cost of calling.

Calling fees are substantially lower when you use VoIP—in fact, they might be lowered in half or more. For organisations with high call volumes, this is a significant cost-cutting measure that will pay off in the long run.

It enables remote work.

Allowing employees to work from home is becoming increasingly common, saving firms money on office space while also increasing productivity. Remote employment is becoming increasingly popular, and many businesses are establishing themselves in the manner in which they expect to continue—without a physical office.

VoIP is extremely adaptable, making it simple to set up a phone connection for a worker that they may use from anywhere, including their home. They can do whatever they want as long as they have an internet connection.

Save your IT Team a lot of time

A VoIP network is simple to manage once it is set up. Adding more accounts or phone numbers is as easy as a few clicks, with no need to fiddle with hardware or phone lines. This minimises the amount of time IT employees or systems administrators are required to work, which saves money for any company.

VoIP is far less likely to fail because it is frequently hosted in the cloud. Any issues that develop are easier to resolve and can be remedied by using a different internet connection.


VoIP isn't just for large corporations. Because the service is relatively scalable, small enterprises can also benefit from the savings. When your business expands, your VoIP system may expand with it, and without incurring any additional costs—no new phone lines are required. Because everything is housed in the cloud, there's no need to replace your hardware or communications centres as your company grows. It can even let your company expand into other areas without incurring significant additional costs.
