Business VoIP systems work by placing and receiving calls over an Internet connection rather than a traditional phone line. Not only are business VoIP systems more cost-effective than traditional phone systems, but they come with the same advanced features and you do not have to worry about maintaining expensive routing hardware. With VoIP mobile apps, you can make and receive calls from your business phone number while you’re out of the office and on the go. Here are two of the top mobile VoIP apps:
RingCentral iPhone App
The RingCentral iPhone app is free to download from the iTunes App Store for customers with a RingCentral account. This app comes with many advantages, including the ability to make VoIP calls without using minutes from your wireless plan, and to make and receive calls using your company’s business number. You are also able to show your RingCentral number as your caller ID and keep all of your business voicemails separate from your personal voicemails.
With the RingCentral app, you can receive, view, and forward faxes, as well as receive push notifications for incoming messages. Additionally, you can view your RingCentral call logs and access all your company extensions as a contact group. The app is also available for the Android and the Blackberry.
Phone.com iPhone App
Phone.com offers a free app for iPhone users who have an existing Phone.com account. Phone.com’s iPhone app comes with many great features, including the ability to listen to and manage voicemails, view received faxes, view your extension’s call logs, block calls from unidentified users, and make calls from your virtual office phone number.
With this app, you can also send and receive text messages from your virtual office phone number and quickly connect to your conference bridge. The only downside is that the iPhone version is only available as a Web App. The app is available in native versions for Android and Blackberry.
