Narrowing down a reliable SIP trunk provider can really be a time consuming and daunting task and as a business owner you do not have all the time in the world to call up every provider because every second of your time is crucial in running your business and making a profit out of it.
To save you time whilst still able to locate a best sip trunk providers bear in mind the following tips.
First is to jot down all the your requirements, a sales call with a service provider can take a lot of your time since they need to investigate all your needs and that is only for one provider, so instead of recalling of those information during a call over and over again it is best to keep a list handy.
It should tell all basic information about your company like current phone numbers, current telecommunication company, features you need, and the type of internet connection you have. Some SIP Trunk providers will ask for a copy of your billing statement to assess the savings you can enjoy so keep a soft copy handy so you can quickly email it to them.
Second is to do a little research, there are countless SIP trunk providers out there and many being established every day, so it is best to visit forums and telecommunication discussion boards and determine a reliable provider from real people and real users. Keep a list of the top recommended SIP trunk companies and go from there.
Third is calling them up and the most important part, be sure to discuss your requirements in depth and make it clear, you wouldn’t want these guys to be calling you over and over again just to ask you if you need this or that.
At the same time you can determine their efficiency and reliability during a call, well of course they are also running a business and should make a profit out of it but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it should all be about making a sale for them; it should be a solution based call for your business.
