Itís a difficult task to choose a VoIP for your residence or business with so many choices around. You wonít be sure if thatís the right provider.
You need to analyze your needs before jumping into conclusion and decided on the correct VoIP provider.
Well, here are some of the checklist that I had made up for your references:
1. Do you need a system that is mobile and can be managed dynamically from phones. In simple terms, flexibility. You can be anywhere doing your job, so in such case, check if your VoIP has Desktop and Mobile applications support.
2. If you are willing to expand your business choose a VoIP that is capable enough to digest your business expansions.
3. Do you actually need that much features for which you are paying for? Donít get attracted to the services, subscribe them only if necessary.
4. Lastly, none but not least Budget.
