Landline use can be a major drain on your businesses bottom line, which is why this week, Axis for Business brings you four ways to reduce the use of landlines for small businesses.

We’ve heard first-hand how much a landline can cost a small business. A small business depends upon communication to survive. However, that does not mean that you should be held hostage by the cost of using a landline, just to keep your business afloat. In the modern world, it’s not so straight forward.

Here Are Four Ways to Cut Down Your Use of Landlines
There are several methods you can utilise to decrease the use of the landline in your office, and in Axis for Business’ opinion, these are the top five…
  1. Contract Mobile: If you have staff who heavily uses the phone i.e. a sales team, why not invest in a contract mobile company phone with unlimited minutes? That way, they can call out as much as they need and not have to worry about the phone bill.
  2. Email: As far as basic office communication goes, there’s a reason that most offices have embraced email. It’s extremely cost effective. In fact, with the exception of the costs incurred by bringing the internet to your office, it’s free.
  3. Skype: Another internet communication method that’s essentially free is Skype. Skype allows you to be more specific than you would in an email, yet it costs practically the same as email to use.
  4. Google Hangout: An alternative to skype is Google Hangout. It’s similar to skype, however it’s more suitable for conference calls. Whilst Skype only allows for one-on-one interaction, on Hangouts, you can invite up to nine participants.
Yes, small businesses stills need landlines for some purposes i.e. incoming calls. Yet in the modern world, you aren’t nearly as dependent on them as you used to be. Embrace modern technology and reduce the effect that landlines have on your utility bills in the process!
