Can the Internet Really Provide Free Long
Distance Calling — For Firms of Any Size?
Any size firm, whether you are large or not-so-large, can find major savings using the Internet to make free long distance calls. It’s called Voice over IP (VoIP) — a combination of hardware and software that enables businesses to use the Internet to transmit and receive telephone calls. All firms should investigate this opportunity, although small firms are particularly suited to move to this technology since they are more nimble and traditionally do not place a huge investment in one type of telephone technology. The realities of VoIP, however, are more complex than simply plugging in some high-tech phones. Whenever you’re ready to talk with a consultant to see if this technology fits your firm’s needs, you need to know the terminology, the benefits and pitfalls. In this program you will learn:
- How VoIP works
- Its advantages and disadvantages for small, mid-sized and large law firms
- Possible costs — and savings
- Equipment needed to implement VoIP
- Internal changes needed to support the required hardware and software
- Key factors to consider when you analyze the VoIP return on investment
- How to work effectively with a consultant on a VoIP project
