Skype has over 1 Billion user accounts and has had a record breaking 30 million simultaneous online users. It should therefore be of no suprise that many companies today are utilising skype for business use.
brp have taken the first a step into a (slightly!) bigger world with the occasional use of Skype for calls and attending meetings. Skype has many benefits but we feel the main reasons for businesses such as ourselves to sign up are:
- Skype can be used as a FREE service! This includes all 'Skype to Skype' calls.
- Conference calling. This allows face to face meetings to occur with multiple users on-screen. In addition to this drawings and documents can be discussed and deliberated on-screen by screen-sharing. This is of huge benefit and can potentially save £hundreds in time and travel expenses for us and our clients and help reduce the impact on our planet. The cost of a Premium Skype account for conferencing is currently a mere £4.31 per month.
- Cold calling is eliminated as contacts must be approved prior to any communication taking place.
- Instant messaging - a free messaging service very useful for messaging in and out of the office from your desktop.
As with most business ventures it's the time and money saved that will swing more and more companies to use the latest in clever communication conduits.
