South African businesses will need to employ more cost-saving measures in 2019 and well into 2020, says Dr Sean Gossel, senior lecturer at the Graduate School of Business at the University of Cape Town.
The harsh economic climate will create tighter credit and interest rates and decrease disposable incomes in the face of more aggressive competition. For a business to survive in this environment, you need to employ the good, old-fashioned notion of budgeting. And what better place to start than with your phone bill?
Why VoIP solutions?
VoIP technology comes up trumps in the cost-savings department – the pricing is affordable and straightforward. VoIP is more cost-effective than traditional landlines because the technology uses your existing Internet connection. Your monthly expenses are predictable and easy to manage. And you don’t have to worry about maintenance. All of the necessary infrastructure is owned and operated by the service provider, which essentially makes this a “plug-and-play” service.
Less to worry about
VoIP lets you enjoy the benefits of a secure, high-performing solution without having to invest in the underlying infrastructure. We make it easy for you to manage the growing demand for better communication tools by giving you a fully managed service that includes design, configuration, support, change management and reporting.
Updates are handled through software, making it easier to constantly improve voice service levels. There are endless possibilities when you operate your business through a VoIP phone system.
