Telappliant, the leading Internet telephony provider for UK based small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs), has published a new whitepaper entitled 'VoIP telephony for business: Dispelling the perceived barriers to switching' to help bridge the gap between the perception and reality of using VoIP in a business environment.
According to an independent survey commissioned by Telappliant, 41% of UK businesses are already using VoIP telephony and a further 25% have plans to review and implement VoIP within the next 12 months*. Although savings and organisational efficiencies can be gained quickly through VoIP, the survey also highlights that there are five perceived barriers preventing more businesses from making the switch. These include senior management not understanding the full business benefits of VoIP; the assumption that VoIP is too much effort to deploy or maintain; concerns about audio quality; potential security risks; and the need to wear headsets.
Telappliant's whitepaper addresses these perceived barriers and offers businesses practical advice on points to consider when switching to VoIP. To download the free whitepaper visit www.telappliant.com/white-papers.

Hosted VoIP telephony systems are quick and easy to set up and virtually maintenance-free. Furthermore, headsets are no longer required as lines can be connected to desk phones or mobile devices. VoIP undoubtedly gives businesses greater flexibility in the way they can operate and the savings made will directly impact their bottom line in a positive way."
