3 reasons you should get on board with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) now!

Would you run your business on an 18 year old computer like the one featured in this Dell advertisement found on YouTube?

No you say? Really? You don’t think 32MB of RAM and a 3.2Gb hard drive would be enough to support the myriad of tasks you need your computer to perform in support of your business? So why would you allow your business to keep operating using a phone system that existed before there was Something About Mary?

Still need more convincing? Fine. Here are three reasons you should consider upgrading to TDS Telecom’s business VoIP phone solution, managedIP Hosted.

  1. Everyone else is doing it
    According to Albany, New York based Transparency Market Research in 2013 the global VoIP services market was valued at $70.90 billion. That market is expected to grow about 10 percent annually through 2020 increasing its value to an estimated $136.76 billion and subscriber base to 348.5 million. I’m not saying you should just automatically do everything that others are doing. But trends are trends for a reason.

  3. DARE we say the phones are pretty cool
    TDS Telecom is a Platinum level choice partner with Polycom, Inc. And yes, that is a pretty big deal. Polycom is a leader in the unified collaboration solutions industry and produce awesome business phones like the VVX 500. This sleek device features a touch screen, intuitive interface, and it made a recent guest appearance on Marvel’s Daredevil which plays on Netflix!

    I know Daredevil has been out for a while, but I recently found the time to really sit down and start watching it. At about the 43 minute mark in episode three, “Rabbit in a Snow Storm” you’ll catch a brief glimpse of the Polycom VVX 500 sitting on the desk of reporter Ben Urich played by Vondie Curtis-Hall.

  5. BOGO for a penny
    Who doesn’t love a deal? I know I do! I almost lost my cool when I got a coupon in the mail for a free Swiffer dry mop. I didn’t need a mop at the time. But who cares because it was free, right! Well right now if you buy one Polycom VVX 500 phone you’ll get a second one for just a penny!
