Do you know the basis of VoIP phone system implementation?Do you know how can you achieve the full benefits of IP intercom and VoIP systems? Do you know the problems associated with VoIP implementation? If you don’t know the answers to some or any of the above, then can help you.

It seems that VoIP is saving big bucks for organizations. According to a report recently published in Portage Daily Graphic, the Portage la Prairie School Division recently installed a VoIP system in two of its schools, and has since seen savings of $130,000 in a short period of time. In this way, the school has replaced its traditional intercom systems with VoIP systems, and is certainly enjoying the results.

This VoIP technology offers affordable extensions and telecom services for individual users instead of multiple expensive phone lines. In the case of these Canadian schools, they can use these extensions to communicate in place of the schools’ public intercom systems.

My VoIP Provider has been inspired by this innovative use of VoIP, and is now presenting the best ways to use VoIP technology, which could truly make all the difference for any business that uses an intercom or internal phone system.

Business VoIP providers offer scalable, cheaper and easier service, which allows users to freely add or subtract extensions to their plans. For example, the Portage la Prairie schools found it would cost $160,000 to repair or replace the intercom system in two schools alone, while it would only cost $30,000 to set up with an alternative, more cost-effective VoIP service.

These phone extensions are connected to each classroom’s telephone, just as desk telephones are set up in an office. Additionally, internal calls within the school are free and unlimited. Even more, if other schools in the division have the same VoIP provider, schools can call one another at no additional charge – regardless of the distance between schools or the duration of the phone call, as all VoIP to VoIP calls are free.

Many top VoIP providers offer Group Paging at no extra cost. The complimentary voicemail to e-mail option is also available. For school services not willing to leave traditional analog intercom systems, some VoIP providers offer digital intercoms ready to ditch.
