In a bid to reduce connectivity costs across its various businesses and ease the transition to chip and pin, United Co-operatives is to trial a VoIP network.

The group will deploy a VoIP network from the supplier of its current broadband network, Evoxus. United Co-operatives expects to save more than £1m across all contracts associated with the VoIP deployment.

“With such a large estate we inevitably have to deal with the complexity of different networks and technologies,” said Ian Dyson, general manager information services of United Co-operatives.

“We’ve decided to trial an IP solution with 40 of our users initially, the aim being to make the workforce more flexible and to drive down costs. More importantly, using the Evoxus solution, we can install VoIP at a network level and therefore protect our investment in legacy equipment.”
