How cloud telephony changes the way you communicate?
Businesses today work under fast pace where communication takes place every second from all the directions. Oftentimes, these messages have to be communicated instantly. Which is why, there’s massive developments happening in business management tools. Businesses are now switching to online resources to reduce costs, increase collaboration and enhance reliability. This is where cloud telephony comes into the picture.
Cloud telephony gives on-demand web-based voice services that are hosted, and dynamically scalable. With cloud telephony, the deployment of voice infrastructure can be easily done through a simple programmable interface. The cloud gives an economical offer as it does not require any hardware purchase, or managing the software.
Let’s take an example of Internet fax. Internet fax is the process that lets you send and receive regular faxes directly on your computer or laptop through an Internet fax service provider. Currently, there’re not many online faxing solutions in India other than Superfax. Using the methodology, you can send and receive faxes from anywhere in the world using your computer. All you need to have is the document that you’d like to fax on your computer as an image or text file.
Take another example of an important communication solution called autodialler.The pre-configured dialers, however, can call only one number at a time and in case that number is not available the whole purpose fails. Cloud telephony gives power to these conventional autodialler by using them on emergency alarm. By using cloud telephony autodialler becomes a Superdialler and which can call over one thousand numbers in under 2 minutes. Cloud telephony gives the power to bring the most economical and advanced emergency notification system for any business. It can be integrated with any existing fire alarm panel or burglar alarm panels which are connected with smoke detectors, temperature sensors, magnetic sensor etc. It is very useful and reliable system to inform multiple employees on their mobile phone in case of any emergencies. It overcomes all limitation of existing autodialing system and PA system using the fast and unlimited calling power of cloud telephony.
Not only this, this can also be used by individuals, especially working women, senior citizens and those living alone. Vulnerable people like them need a communication mechanism that can send a distress message in case of an emergency to the employer, police, guardian or friends, instantly.
Quite clearly, cloud telephony saves a lot of time and money by helping people and businesses. Also, it’s reliable, secure, and the efficient way forward as to how you communicate effectively.
