One area V1 VoIP resellers consistently say is undertargeted is schools. We don’t mean upper level educational facilities like colleges.

By utilizing V1 VoIP services and solutions, a school is able to work more productively, so they can focus on the students and community. In turn, by saving money using VoIP, schools can use those savings to put into programs that will benefit their students.
How can V1 VoIP services benefit a school?
1. Manage calls.
V1 VoIP services allow users to set hour rules to manage incoming calls. This way the principal and even teachers can define where calls get sent to based on the time of day and day of week. For example during regular school year and day hours, incoming calls can be received by the secretary, but weekends or after-hours, calls can be sent to a third party answering service. This also allows teachers to make and receive calls, message coworkers, and review voicemails.
2. Simultaneous Location Ring
Schools can take advantage of simultaneous phone registration, so multiple phone devices can be registered to the same user. When a call arrives for the principal for example, all registered phones will ring at the same time. This way they can have an office desk phone, home office phone, and their mobile phone actively registered in the phone system, so they can answer incoming calls on any of those devices.
3. Emergency Locating
In the current climate, being prepared for an emergency is a must. Schools use E911 so they can immediately contact help in an emergency. E911 allows a school to specify the address of the school so that emergency personnel can locate the source of any 911 calls made from there.
3. Campus Connectivity
Many schools are not limited to one stand alone building, so maintaining a phone system across a campus can be expensive. This is where V1 VoIP’s cloud hosted services can shine and connect multiple locations.
4. Teacher Inboxes
Teachers can use voicemail-to-email to quickly review voicemails right from their email inboxes, which automatically sends each employee’s personal voicemails directly to their email. As teachers are often on the go between classes, they can stay up-to-date with their messages instead of having to return to one particular phone to review them.
