Co-op set to trial VoIP

Karen Gomm

United Co-operatives is to trial a voice-over-IP network to reduce connectivity costs across its food, travel and funeral branches.

The group which employs more than 15,000 staff across the UK will trial a VoIP network from Evoxus. In the past year, Evoxus has also provided the Co-op with a broadband ADSL network.

United Co-operatives expects to save £1m as a result of using VoIP and the ADSL link.

The group has decided to trial the VoIP service with 40 of its users, in a bid to make the workforce more flexible and to drive down costs. United Co-operative will not have to replace its existing network equipment to support VoIP.

United Co-operative offers a wide range of services which include food stores, travel, motor dealerships, pharmacies, funeral homes and other subsidiaries.
