Westchester County Church Saves on Voice Over IP Phone System

75% in Monthly Savings

Pleasantville Presbyterian Church in Westchester County New York had an aging phone system with analog lines. During a free assessment, Louisa Voice determined that the church could save up to 75% per month making the switch to VoIP system.

Like many other businesses we work with, the church had an aging Avaya PBX with analog phone lines that were in need of replacement. They also had internet service delivered via a digital line subscriber (DSL). Louisa Voice looked at their monthly bill for voice service and determined that they were using 800 minutes per month, with the majority of the minutes coming from inbound calls.

Louisa Voice worked with the church on the selection of a new carrier that significantly lowered their public voice network charges. Verizon FIOS was installed as the broadband provider for delivering significantly greater Internet throughput in both directions. A VoIP solution with bridged line appearance (BLA) capability was installed allowing the administrative assistant to see when the Pastor is on the phone and also be able to easily transfer calls. A firewall was also installed to protect the church private network from Internet intruders while allowing remote access for access to internal services and troubleshooting.

The Pleasantville Presbyterian Church’s monthly telecommunications costs, including voice and Internet, were reduced from $350 per month, before the network upgrades, to under $90, a monthly saving of 75%. In addition to the savings, the church got much faster Internet service with a leading edge VoIP system including features like customized auto-attendants, voicemail to email, and conferencing.
