An announcement was made by the CSI Technology Outfitters regarding the inclusion of hosted VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) Services into the existing CSI@K12 Education Cloud. This inclusion is to bring about a cost-effective technology currently being offered for K-12 and higher education institutions. CSI Technology Outfitters is reaching out to school systems across the country by leading the VoIP charge and showing the efficiency, flexibility, and cost effectiveness of next-generation voice platforms.
The CSI@K12 Education Cloud, which already includes world class email integration in partnership with Microsoft Live@edu, web portal access, and web hosting, links together the key communication and collaboration tools that are sought after in today's education environment. Therefore, the educational institutions do not have to purchase software and hardware that have limited use, invest in technologies that are quickly outdated, or invest time in supporting these solutions, these services become highly scalable and, in return, reduce the time and complexity of deploying these services within the current technology environment. VoIP is proving to be the most cost-effective way to get a phone in every classroom. Schools are finding that the bulk of VoIP deployments can piggyback on E-Rate funding and other data infrastructure initiatives and the elimination of expensive standard service enables particularly swift return on investment.
