Work smarter, not harder, with VoIP

The cost of doing business is increasing and, with the 2025 Switch Off of the UK’s landline network drawing closer, it’s time that telephony systems start working smarter for UK businesses, not forcing teams to work harder – which is exactly what a VoIP system can do!

What is VoIP?

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that allows users to make voice calls over the internet instead of using traditional phone lines, meaning users can make and receive calls from anywhere in the world as long as they have a mobile signal or Wi-Fi connection – ideal for enabling hybrid or remote working policies!

One of the most significant benefits of using VoIP is cost savings. VoIP systems are much cheaper than traditional phone lines, as they do not require expensive hardware or wiring.

In fact, Express Telephony’s VoIP systems start at just £7.95 per month!

Though, you can still use an existing desk phone if your team prefers it, as long as it’s compatible. You could even integrate your new VoIP system with Microsoft Teams, for a truly seamless collaboration system that puts all your comms in one place!

Key benefits of VoIP

Before we get into the key benefits, it’s worth noting that VoIP systems don’t simply limit you to voice calls, as the name would suggest. With our VoIP systems, you can take advantage of video calling, conferencing and more, all through your internet service!

Here are some more benefits that have meant VoIP has become the tech of choice for many small-to-medium-sized businesses:


Because they use your internet connection, VoIP platforms will keep working well past 2025. Plus, they’re regularly updated with new features and more, meaning your system is always cutting-edge.

Budget optimisation

VoIP systems enable you to get more value from your comms budget and a more predictable monthly bill, especially with our bundled minutes that prevent any crazy per-minute costs.

More features

Leverage file sharing, video chat, messaging, call recording, internal conferencing, call logging and more, to enhance internal collaboration. Plus, it means you can open up new communication channels to your customers to enable faster replies and access to new target markets, especially younger customers who have grown up on messaging and social media.


With VoIP systems, staff can take calls from anywhere for productive remote working, as long as staff have Wi-Fi or mobile signal. That means you could enact a fully-fledged hybrid working policy, or simply enable teams to stay in touch when they’re out and about.


VoIP systems are easily scaled up or down to meet changing business needs, allowing you to save money on unnecessary lines only used occasionally, and the process couldn’t be simpler too. You can add new lines, or even create new calling groups and IVRs, with a couple of clicks!


Because these VoIP systems are delivered by some of the biggest communications vendors in the world, you can rely on their systems staying inline 24/7, with business-grade SLAs (Service Level Agreements) and multiple redundancies to ensure calls always come through.
