Since the first time it became commercially available in 1995, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) drastically changed the landscape of business communications technology. Today, this one system fills several roles once held by multiple devices, offering varied solutions to many modern challenges. VoIP comes in many different but convenient forms. In fact, it’s not unusual to find do-it-yourself VoIP kits for enterprising small business owners.
Effective communication is a cornerstone of many of today’s businesses. Fortunately, one aspect of modern technology in particular has paved the way for quicker and more efficient connections in this fast-paced world: the internet.
