Mobile VoIP : Future of Communication

Almost every person in the world is using a smartphone. Agree or not, making a phone call is still the major use, no matter for which other countless tasks we use our cellphone for. It seems to be somewhat out of question to whether VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) IP telephony, the biggest threat to landline, must be deregulated or not. Moreover, the need for digital voice solutions is one of the reasons for an exponential increase in the demand of mobile phone adaptions. They are now popular not only among individuals but private organizations as well.

Quoting the words of Mr. Collin Wood, a contributor to Government Technology "As data networks gain greater geographic coverage and people increasingly use data-based services instead of picking up the phone to communicate, mobile voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) is starting to look like an attractive option for some organizations, VoIP phone system has become a common solution in offices and some homes, and now it's beginning to look like a viable replacement to cellphone service on mobile devices with the potential for cost savings to organizations that manage many devices."

Organizations and employees both have gained a lot in terms of increased collaboration, enhanced productivity, employee retention, reduced costs, etc. by adaption VoIP technology. As the employees are getting comfortable with mobile technology the problem of solving a client’s requirement or working remotely, from home or anywhere out of office is no longer a threat to an enterprise.

Better accessibility of a company’s network from an integrated communication application lets an employee to manage a healthy work life balance. This keeps the employees productive even if they have obligations to take care of out of office. A healthy balanced work life is directly proportional to increased productivity as an employee will be able to manage his life and work simultaneously, thus feeling valued and getting intrinsic motivation to try harder and deliver quality output.

Companies Cannot Be Afraid Of Change

Adapting an advancing technology should be the prior step for any organization, change could be difficult as it might directly affect the culture or the operations of an organization, but technological change is for good. Information Week contributor E.Kelly Fitzsimmons say "human nature can sometimes be the cause of enough fear in people to keep them from moving forward". Well, this statement comes out to be true for most of the organizations especially in the case of telecommunication technology. They are still trying to manage by their legacy systems just to avoid that "Change" which they are afraid of ignoring the positives that might come out of it. to Marlin Finance contributor Brian Walsh says "Communications and collaboration being packaged can lead to further advantages through connections to other business practices like customer relationship management software, VoIP's cloud computing origins and focuses can make adopting similar practices much easier in the long run by giving users one specialized platform with which they can become more comfortable in their practices."

Thus, when geography is the barrier VoIP can be a useful tool to conduct online meetings with people who are geographically apart. Other communications platforms can also be integrated in useful ways when pushed through SIP, thus making collaboration effective diminishing geographical barriers.
