What are the benefits of VoIP and smart IP communication for educators?

Modern schools, universities and colleges need to be able to communicate effectively and responsively at all times, whether this means relaying important information to staff, students and parents, or addressing the evolving educational needs of a diverse student body spread across locations around the country, or even around the world.

VoIP and internet-based phone systems for schools can be a multipurpose solution to these challenges, offering the following essential benefits for schools and educators:

  • Provide all of your staff with access to a complete suite of user-friendly communication tools – including conference calls, call recording, caller ID, call forwarding and instant messaging – from any device, wherever they are located
  • Streamline and unify your entire communications infrastructure under a single service, porting over all of your existing contacts and numbers to your new setup
  • Adapt your existing systems to work with Microsoft Teams, meaning you can complement your existing infrastructure rather than having to totally replace it with expensive new gear
  • Upgrade your internet services with dedicated lines, centralised network management and flexible setups, guaranteeing a stable, high-quality connection to support always-online learning and remote teaching
  • Save money by switching all of your voice communication over to free VoIP calling, while unlocking significant efficiency benefits and more seamless administration over time
  • Take advantage of the complete security and enterprise-grade reliability offered by an industry-leading carrier network

Investing in a VoIP phone system for your school or college will be a relatively seamless process with Fuse 2 handling the transition for you. Once your new setup is up and running, your institution will see extended benefits over time, with a much lower total cost of ownership than traditional telephony, and a much broader range of capabilities.
