VoIP services

More and more UK businesses are making the move to VoIP phone services⁠—and that’s a wise decision, because the UK’s PSTN and ISDN (traditional copper-wired telephony) will be switched off in 2025. Get not just phone calls, but also video conferencing and messaging, with Dialpad’s unified communications solution. Try it for free! It takes just a few minutes to sign up, and you'll be set up with a virtual phone number too.

The importance of getting the right VoIP service provider

Your business phone system is a vital piece of technology. From sales, to support, to all your internal communications, every department needs functional communications. Choosing the right option among many VoIP service providers isn’t easy.

The first step is looking at your own business needs. Which departments need the most advanced features? Which services do you need to integrate? Are you looking for enterprise VoIP or a small business alternative? What level of support availability do you need from your provider?

Fixed and ongoing costs will be an important factor in your choice. If you’re a growing business, then you’ll need to look for a solution that can scale with you. Not all providers handle scaling call volumes in the same way.

Look for a VoIP phone service that can integrate with your existing systems, like your CRM (think Salesforce or HubSpot) or helpdesk software. This will benefit your unified communications strategy. The more your solution can integrate, the less likely you’ll need to make costly changes in the future.

Truly unified communications

With Dialpad, you can make phone calls, sure. But you can also send an instant message to your group thread, ping an SMS to someone who doesn't have the Dialpad app, and yes, even do video conferencing and screen sharing—all from the desktop or mobile app. Not only that, you get unlimited calling in the UK (and the US and Canada) even on the most basic plan.

Dialpad's visual voicemail transcription feature

Voicemail transcriptions

Want to change your voicemail greeting? Easy. Upload a clip or record a greeting right in Dialpad, and change it in just a few minutes. Dialpad also has visual voicemail, which transcribes your voicemails so you can read them⁠—handy when you're in meetings all day and can't listen to the audio message.

A list of recorded calls in Dialpad's app

Call recording

Having calls with customers or prospects where you discuss deals or other important details? Call recordings can come in handy, especially in the event of a dispute, and can also give new sales or customer support employees examples of what to do. You get unlimited call recordings and real-time transcription as standard with any Dialpad plan!

Adding a call forwarding number from Dialpad’s online dashboard.

Call forwarding

If a customer rings your business number while you’re away from your desk, you can set up call forwarding with a maximum of five phone numbers. Send those inbound calls to your mobile phone line, a colleague or a completely different department—and never give out your personal phone number again.

Call routing

This one’s especially useful for contact or call centres, or companies with multiple departments, but any business that gets lots of incoming calls can make good use of Dialpad’s intuitive call routing feature. With Dialpad, you can set up an auto attendant with call routing rules based on options like agent availability or skill level.

Boosting business communications with Dialpad: Offering more than even the best VoIP service

When it comes to which VoIP providers UK businesses prefer, those that actually provide UCaaS platforms—like Dialpad—are taking the lead. As well as offering big cost savings compared to traditional PBX or other legacy systems, unified communications solutions support modern customer-focused account management.

Traditional VoIP functions such as automatic call routing, forwarding and call recording are just part of the package. Dialpad’s integrated contact centre functionality enables your teams to provide consistent service across all your comms channels.

Bringing your communications into one unified platform lets your business provide the best possible customer experience. Hosted VoIP is one option for modern communications, but UCaaS goes one step further as it’s an all-in-one solution.

    FAQs about business VoIP services

    What is a VoIP service?

    VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) refers to the technology that enables the transfer of audio content—usually phone calls—over the internet. Put simply, that means you can make calls, either on a traditional handset or via a PC or mobile device via softphone, all using a broadband connection.

    A VoIP service is the name for a software solution using that technology, to allow for business communications. These solutions generally include functions that were more difficult to implement on traditional phone systems, like call recording and voicemail-to-email. Business users are moving to UCaaS or VoIP solutions for these extended functions and the integration of contact centre tools.
