Go Green with Your Hotel Phone System
These days, it seems as though the whole world is going green. Not only are consumers taking steps to be more eco-friendly in their day to day lives, but they are also expecting the businesses that they work with to take responsibility for the protection of the environment. Because of this, it is more important that hotels become greener now than ever before.
- Increasing Virtual Communication – VoIP telephony is supportive of unified communications systems by allowing all forms of communication, including fax, conference calls, and even webcam meetings to be combined under one single umbrella. This cuts down on the materials and resources required for your facility’s communication needs, which means that you won’t need to consume as much energy to operate your equipment. In addition to this, virtual communications cut down on the amount of paper that you will need to use for fax and data sharing.
- Waste Reduction – Traditional phone systems often become outdated quickly and must be upgraded. VoIP phone systems can have new features introduced to them with updates through the Internet, and are fully scalable. This ultimately cuts down on the amount of discarded equipment that ends up in landfills.
- Electronic Transmissions – Because voice and other data is transmitted electronically via the Internet, VoIP does not require miles of wire and cabling that is coated in unsafe substances. This helps to reduce the amount of dangerous chemicals that may be introduced into the environment.
- Decreased CO Emissions – Virtual Communication cuts down on the need for individuals to travel from one place to another in order to communicate. In the event that you need to host a seminar or meeting with another hotel branch or business partner, you can meet virtually with your VoIP phone system. This cuts down on the carbon emissions that would have depleted the ozone had you driven or flown to a distanced location.
