TDS white paper explores tangible cost savings afforded through VoIP

Many companies in the marketplace are touting VoIP telephony systems for their ability to improve employee productivity, enhance collaboration efforts and enable remote work that vastly decreases costs associated with brick-and-mortar establishments.

However, some companies – especially those operating under tight budget constraints – may have trouble correlating a relatively abstract concept like “improved productivity” to a tangible increase in cost efficiency.

Mitigating such worries though, a recent white paper entitled “Find the value in business VoIP” published by Telephone & Data Systems Inc. (TDS) delivers a tangible illustration of the savings VoIP can manifest.

The white paper begins by stating that many businesses allocate roughly 10 percent of their net budget to telecommunications. However, oftentimes a portion of those expenses are wasted because a business spends up front money on a rigid system that can’t adapt to seasonal changes, downsizing and other variations in volume.

By contrast, with the scalability inherent to VoIP technology, any capacity adjustments can be made with great ease without the stress of changing service providers or transitioning hardware. And because this kind of flexibility lowers management costs, the study found that organizations utilizing VoIP systems enjoy anywhere between a 3 to 40 percent reduction in overall costs.

Laying out more terms of explicit savings, the white paper details that “VoIP can allow organizations to cut long-distance charges by uniting branch locations and teleworkers over WAN and VPN links, and reducing toll-free number costs by effectively routing inbound calls. Additionally, combining VoIP with cellular technology allows businesses to leverage their own internal Wi-Fi networks when paired with dual mode cellular technology. This reduces charges for cellular calls.”

Considering the measurable economic benefits afforded through IP-based communications, companies interested in implementing a customized VoIP program of their own can do so by turning to a national IT service such as CTI Technology that can provide a range of business phone systems.
