VoIP can save businesses ‘up to 40%’ in costs

New studies have indicated that Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology has the potential to reduce a business' costs by as much as 40 per cent.

Telecoms represent a reasonable chunk of a firm's outgoings, meaning the value of VoIP can quickly add up.

The technology is rapidly becoming a cornerstone in helping businesses communicate with employees working elsewhere, whether it be from home or at another site within the company.

As a result of using VoIP, companies can reduce their network management costs, streamline the services they provide to clients and increase productivity.

In a recent VoIP pilot study, Intel discovered that scheduling a conference bridge was seven times faster with the technology, while receiving a fax was 31 times faster.

The company determined from the pilot that introducing VoIP services would save the typical worker 2.7 days per year.
