IP Telephony offers an easy way for public sector organisations to meet the demand to cut costs. It offers up to 40% savings on overall phone system costs, as well as eliminating the cost of purchasing, installing and maintaining hardware. However, it can integrate with existing PBXs via SIP Trunks, if organisations prefer this, while at the same time providing more features than legacy telephony systems.
In addition, IP Telephony’s model, in which IT costs calculated per user and incurred only for services actually consumed, saves organisations even more money and also enables them to plan and budget more accurately.
A further benefit is the flexibility offered by IP Telephony, enabling public sector organisations to easily meet changing needs, scaling with demand and providing the Internet-hosted extensions that allow employees to work as easily from home or on the move as they can from their work desk.

Case Study: Medway Council
When Medway Council wanted to replace its existing PBXs they realised that Redcentric’s IP Telephony offered a more cost-effective and future-proof solution. This decision cut the monthly cost of operating individual telephone lines from around £18 to just £6, and reduced maintenance enabling more efficient use of IT technicians’ time and increased the council’s agility.
