Why should a business switch to VoIP phone service?

Posted online

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) can save a business up to 30% off current major carrier landline phone service through companies like AT&T or MediaCom. Not only will it save money, it also provides a multitude of included services and add-on options.

VoIP is also a good idea for businesses that may already have on-premise phone systems. Although these on-premise phone systems offer a lot of functionality, they are very costly to maintain and will eventually become outdated, meaning the business will have to spend upwards of $10,000 or more for a new updated system.

VoIP service is always up to date and the only cost to the business is the monthly service fee. Most IT managed service providers offer VoIP services in their packages at a very discounted rate if you sign on with them for the rest of your IT services.

Chris Kays founded F1 Computing Solutions, LLC, in July 2005. Having spent many years in the IT field and knowing just how difficult and frustrating it could be to find support in a timely manner, Chris decided his IT company would focus on high-quality, timely customer service.

Chris was honorably discharged as a disabled veteran after four years of service in the United States Air Force. Following that service, Chris became a letter carrier for the United States Postal Service in Springfield. After 15 years working his way up through the ranks into management while simultaneously putting himself through college at MSU, earning a bachelor’s degree in business, Chris decided to start F1 Computing Solutions. During Chris’s time at the Postal Service, he frequently put his computer and programming skills to use. He even cut the manager’s workload in half with a program he created; a program that was then implemented at post offices nationwide.

Chris is immensely proud of his many accomplishments throughout his life. He is and always will be a proud American and is even more proud to be from Springfield, Missouri. Chris is honored to be able to continue with a thriving business supported by the very community to which he has always belonged.
