"Preparing for a recent telesales campaign, and having only recently taken over the running of TWA I realised the high cost of outgoing call charges. A brief conversation with Dave Gibbs of Bayside Business Solutions produced the perfect annswer; a VoIP phone line connected to our existing broadband line.
Bayside promptly fitted our smart new telephone system which has a local 01202 telephone number. Not only can we now make outgoing calls at a fraction of the price , but we are also able to identify incoming marketing calls."
