Who Uses Business VoIP?
VoIP, or voice over Internet Protocol, allows you to make calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of an analog phone line. With the growth of cloud technology, businesses can use features like voice, text, and conferencing from anywhere, and any device. It’s a relatively new technology, but it’s one many businesses have started adopting. Curious to know what businesses use VoIP systems? Here’s a look at who is using some of the biggest cloud-based VoIP providers.
Scottsdale, Arizona-based Nextiva boasts more than 100,000 customers, and offers service throughout the U.S. The company was founded in 2006, and has won several awards for its product and service. In 2012, the company expanded its marketing efforts to get more small and medium-sized businesses. While the company describes itself as serving “thousands of small-to-midsize companies across the United States,” it has large customers, as well.
