Brooklyn, NY, August 17, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- ITP VoIP, an internet phone service available at www.ITPVoIP.com, is now offering softphone service as an add-on for all of its Voice Over IP plans. Available for under $10 per month with 250 minutes of free calling, ITP VoIP's softphone feature is ideal for on-the-go VoIP callers and businesses interested in trimming their budgets. With ITP, digital phone callers can also receive an additional dedicated softphone number in any area code in the country.
At their most basic form, softphones are computer programs that allow users to make phone calls over the internet rather than through traditional phone lines. Softphones do not require the same expensive hardware as their "hardphone" counterparts, and with ITP VoIP callers can benefit from additional internet telephone features such as dialing through their softphone contact lists, an alternative to manually entering 10-digit phone numbers.
Softphone service from ITP VoIP is popular among four main user groups: on-the-go users calling from their laptops; telecommuters; businesses with telephone-heavy positions such as sales representatives; and small and medium-sized companies operating on budgetary constraints.
For on-the-go callers such as college students, ITP VoIP’s softphone extension provides an affordable, convenient way to keep in touch with friends and family. Softphones can also benefit telecommuters spending some of their workdays at home; with access to their employers’ digital phone network, telecommuters can use corporate features such as voicemail and call-forwarding even when out of the office.
An asset for business VoIP users, softphone service from ITP VoIP allows companies to cut costs by eliminating the need for expensive phone hardware. This is an important perk for emerging companies with limited working capital, as well as large corporations with phone-heavy departments.
ITP VoIP’s softphone service has many benefits. Because softphone service relies on a company's pre-existing computers and laptops, businesses avoid costs incurred from purchasing desk phones. Softphones are also easier to upgrade than desk phones, enabling companies to keep their software up-to-date without purchasing additional hardware.
Beyond the immediate benefits, the perks ITP VoIP's softphone service can only increase as digital phone and video technology improves. Many VoIP softphone platforms have already begun to incorporate additional forms of communication into their interfaces, including instant messaging and video conferencing, and experts foresee more advanced functionalities on the horizon, from synced conference scheduling to text-to-speech (TTS) translation.
Softphone service is just one of the many premium features ITP VoIP offers on a month-to-month, a la carte basis. An asset for home businesses or companies catering to clients throughout the country, ITP VOIP's toll-free number add-on can establish immediate credibility while allowing ITP users to be reached without callers incurring long-distance charges. Similarly, the International Virtual Number VOIP service makes it easy for business and professional callers maintain local numbers across the globe, available in almost every country. The digital phone provider's Global Cell feature is another must-have for international callers, enabling users to dial international numbers phone from a number in the area code of their choosing, all through their cell phones.
