VoIP for Schools
We are passionate about providing safeguarding, secure and compliant VoIP phone systems into schools and academies. As a VoIP for education provider, we understand the requirements needed within your school. Our VoIP school phone system is packed full of specialised features which improves the day-to-day running of your school. Updating your schools phone system to our award-winning VoIP is simple and cost-effective.
VoIP goes beyond a traditional phone system
Our VoIP phone service goes beyond the capabilities of a traditional phone system. VoIP has unparalleled features, control and call management. Through the introduction of our VoIP technology, we can provide schools and academies with significant cost savings. This is because VoIP runs over an internet connection rather than costly phone lines. Moving to a VoIP service will future-proof your schools phone system. BT have announced that they will be switching off traditional ISDN phone services by 2025. This means if your school relies on a traditional phone service, you will have to move to an IP solution before the deadline.
