Ways to benefit from VoIP? What about productivity?

A couple of articles appeared yesterday on ways to benefit from VoIP.  VoIP-News 12 ways to benefit from mobile VoIP is about all the great convergence applications for mobile VoIP handsets, and TMCNet’s 21 Different Ways to Use VoIP is a whimsical look at difference uses for cheap place shifted calling.

One of the most practical uses for VoIP is in collaboration.  With Calliflower, for example, our clients can hold six or more high quality meetings per day on Calliflower Conference Calls without having to leave the desk.  Compared to traditional face to face meetings, there’s an immediate and substantial productivity benefit.  And, of course, there’s the substantial cost saving of making those conference calls for free.

    I totally agree. Price reduction by using VoIP is nice, but the productivity gains are where the real “treasure” can be found.

    Productivity is definitely the biggest benefit of VoIP for businesses. Our research shows that most small business (less than 50 users) do not save much, if any money by moving to Voice over IP, although cost savings is the primary reason why most companies decided to make the move.

    It is only after making the move to VoIP that a company begins to understand the potential of their new systems. Managers see the flexibility, ease of administration and ability to incorporate phone system changes quickly and inexpensively, do companies actually begin to reap the productivity of VoIP.

    Alec,

    Cisco Telepresence sell? Just mentioning that that is what Cisco is touting as which applies to any Hi-Def conferencing solution.
