Save with VoIP
Cost savings on voice calls using VoIP range from up to 40% on international calls to countries such as Europe and the US, and up to 70% to destinations such as Japan and China, compared to using the local telecommunications infrastructure.
The key to keeping prices on an even keel is to negotiate good bandwidth rates in the competitive international carrier market, and there are plenty of alternative routes.
Call centers can save an average of 40% on calls to mobile phones with VoIP and 10% to 25% on national calls, depending on the destination and call volumes. If a company handles its own VoIP communication, it would need costly equipment and bandwidth infrastructure, and build direct relationships with overseas carriers.
