    The 10 VOIP platforms to test in 2024

    Illustration VoIP platforms

    Which of the many available VoIP platforms to pick in 2024? Read our comparison of the 10 platforms worth trying out in your business.

    While the vast majority of businesses worldwide still have physical phone lines set up, they are slowly becoming a thing of the past. Getting a phone line infrastructure installed throughout your entire office is cumbersome, complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. 

    Another problem is that the company’s support or sales team is tied down to the office for making or answering calls, plus the capabilities of on-premises phone systems are pretty limited for modern times. 

    To live up to growing customer expectations, companies are slowly starting to replace their regular phone lines with VoIP (voice over internet protocol) platforms, which forward calls using the internet rather than physical lines. While VoIP was invented several years ago, the quality of the calls was relatively low until recently, and it was deemed as being far too unreliable for businesses compared to traditional landlines.

    Choose the best VoIP package

    Now though, not only is there no difference in the quality of the calls, but VoIP also has several advantages compared to typical on-premises phone lines, such as the ability to take calls from any device that has internet access regardless of where an agent is located. 

    But how to pick the best VoIP platform when there are so many of them on the market? We browsed the available VoIP systems and narrowed it down to the 10 best platforms in order to help you with comparing and picking the best tool for your company’s needs.
