Adopting Skype for Business as the primary phone system RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of my clients wants to adopt Skype for Business phones as their primary phones so that they don't have to have an on-premise phone system.

    Here are a few major problems:

    1. The long distance and international calling plan is sold per phone at $24/month for 3,000 minutes, and they can't be pooled. Given the company size of 300 people, this makes this option cost prohibitive at $7,200/month. Is there another way around this?

    2. I can't find any company specialized in deploying SfB phone system. Not sure if anybody can recommend one.

    3. Someone said maybe I can pair Skype phones with an on-premise phone connector with SIP trunks to get around the Problem 1, but that's just theory.

    Could anybody help please?
