On August 16, 2011, ITP VoIP announced that it would now be offering softphone service through all of its different VoIP plans. They also indicated that the service would cost less than $10 a month and would include 250 minutes of free calling.
Softphone IP telephony is a cost-effective means for small businesses to make and receive phone calls over the internet. It does not require a traditional PBX like most phone systems and can have special features like dialing through the user’s softphone contact list instead of manually entering a phone number.
ITP VoIP stated that the service is most popular among telecommuters, laptop users, businesses that make numerous phone calls, and companies who have a limited budget to spend on phone service. They also mentioned that college students often use softphone service as an affordable way to stay in touch with friends and family members.
In addition to its softphone service, ITP VoIP offers toll-free numbers to customers on a month-to-month basis. They also have an International Virtual Number VoIP service that allows businesses to maintain a local phone number in countries around the world, and a Global Cell feature that allows people to dial international phone numbers from whatever area code that they prefer.
VoIP makes a lot of sense for educational institutions—and it’s not just because of the substantial cost savings. Other benefits include increased efficiency and integration options. Emergency responsiveness can even be improved. more
