In this day and age, VoIP for law firms has become a very common means of communication. By replacing traditional analog phone systems with a cloud VoIP phone system, your law firm gains the advantage of always having the latest telecom technology without the expensive maintenance costs of traditional systems.
Even if your law firm is currently subscribed to a traditional landline, most cable and fiber internet service providers have moved to delivering those lines over the internet. Essentially, you are being provided a stripped down version of VoIP which immediately puts your law firm at a disadvantage.
To fully explain how VoIP can help your law firm, it is important to understand how VoIP works.
What is VoIP?
VoIP is an acronym that stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. Essentially, this means you are able to talk with others (your clients in this case) over an Internet connection instead of a traditional copper phone line. VoIP works best over a stable internet connection such as cable or fiber. In most cases, it will work fine over DSL depending on the type of modem provided by the ISP as well as the amount of bandwidth available. Since cable or fiber connections typically deliver the most amount of bandwidth, these are typically safe options. To see if the location of your law firm qualifies for either of these options, feel free to reach out to us here.
VoIP takes efficiency to a whole new level. Since your law firm will be receiving phone calls or making phone calls over the Internet, it trims down the expense of a phone system altogether thereby streamlining all of your communications costs.
Advantages of VoIP for a Law Firm
If your law firm makes international calls regularly, VoIP is even more of a no-brainer. With VoIP, your international calling costs will significantly be reduced or in some cases null and void. In a nutshell, VoIP phones are feature-rich alternatives to the old-school phone systems of yesteryear.
The Jaxcom cloud phone solution for your law firm can positively change the way your firm communicates with your clients. For example, the call recording and dictation features allows your law firm to record their conversations (or depositions) with clients with just the click of a button.

You can easily conduct conference calls, forward calls to your mobile or home phone, receive (and store) messages in various formats, handle calls on the fly with a visual switchboard, send and receive virtual faxes, and so much more.
