This article offers information on different phone technologies used by several financial advisors in the U.S. The GotVMail phone service being used by Sheila Chesney is charged with a per-minute cost for routing calls to the appropriate extension. Meanwhile, Keys Tinney, owner of Wealth Management Group, uses the voice over Internet Protocol technology. Such technology routes incoming calls internally via a computer cable. If you have time to research and test another alternative in the interest of saving money and you are comfortable with operating your business phone system exclusively via the Internet, then consider a remote-hosted Internet-based service.
