Coordinate New Phone and Data Service Orders
When preparing to place an order for new phone or data service, check with
your colleagues to determine whether they need either phone or data service
as well. PennNet wall outlets serve
both your data and phone service needs, and coordinating new installations
and activations will keep technician labor
Protect Phone Sets from Unauthorized Long Distance Calls
Take advantage of our voice Class
of Service Options to restrict
particular types of calls. For example, limiting calls from phones in hallways,
open areas to the 215 and 610 area codes or to credit card only calls will lower
your phone bills and save valuable staff time (no more tracking down who placed
a particular call).
Review Your Voice and Data Monthly Statements
It pays to periodically review your voice and data billing statements. Make
sure all of your active ports are being utilized. And go over phone equipment
line lists with your group. Does everyone need the more expensive multiline phone,
or would some be content with a single or two-line phone set? A once a year review
will eliminate unused data and phone lines from your bill, minimizing monthly
charges to those items and services you really need. You may also want to review
your voicemail accounts. Some users may have a large mailbox that stores 24
or even 40 messages when they only need to save fewer than 12 at a time.
Videoconference via Internet2
Are you using ISDN lines to videoconference? If your call participants are located
at Internet2 member institutions, you
You won't have to maintain your own ISDN lines or pay toll charges
the Internet2 connectivity will provide better quality service.
