Traditional phone systems charge for extra service and hosting multiple callers for conference calls every time. This feature and the cost of it is usually built-in into the VoIP service with no additional charge.

It also makes video conferencing more accessible and allows transferring different media formats during a phone or video call, which significantly enhances the ability to hold presentations or solve issues.

Mobility of Service

VoIP is a highly mobile service. Phone systems need to have a unique number assigned to each line, which can be challenging to transfer. With VoIP, if a user changes location, the VoIP system can be easily transferred with no hassles.

Worldwide Access

For employers, VoIP enables employees to telecommute effectively and remotely implement the office's voice, fax, and data services through the intranet. It can also allow users to connect from the comfort at their home offices and even abroad without being physically present.

Lower Costs

As communication data is being changed into data packets and sent over the IP network, the problem of a single phone line being able to be used by only two callers is removed. Usually, traditional phone lines charge by the minute during call time, whereas with VoIP, it only charges per month from the ISP. Besides, some providers provide low cost or even free calling services.

Another cost-saving benefit of VoIP is the cost related to hardware and software needed to operate the system. Providers make sure that their clients have the most updated software and offer current hardware, removing businesses' need to buy phones and infrastructure constantly.
