In this Business 2 Community article, Loren Baker cites a recent study that found that remote workers now represent 37 percent of the U.S. workforce. “VoIP communications systems support this lifestyle by allowing mobile and flexible options for employees to communicate with colleagues without having to physically be in the office,” she says. “With features like conference calling and the ability to send and receive calls on smartphones, employees can work from wherever they prefer.”

Laiza King discusses in her Huffington Post article that businesses of all sizes, especially small, can gain a competitive edge with the use of VoIP services.

You will save money from travel costs by using collaborating tools like web and video conferencing.”
