Amnesty International USA Adds Efficiency, Lowers Operating Costs Using Hosted VoIP From M5 Networks
Internet-Based Calling Gives Nobel Prize-Winning Grassroots Organization New Capabilities To Connect Staff Travelling Worldwide; Fundraising Efforts Become More Effective
NEW YORK, March 16 -- /PRNewswire/ -- As one of the preeminent voices for victims of human rights violations around the world, Amnesty International plays a critical role in worldwide affairs. Every dollar the grassroots organization takes in is considered a valuable resource, and organizers work hard to stretch donations to meet the needs of their operating costs.
To this end, Amnesty International USA, the group's New York-based arm, recently sought to get a better handle on its telephony costs. With 200 phone connections across six domestic offices, Amnesty International USA's investment in phone systems and fees was quite significant. The organization felt that moving its calling platform to a VoIP (Voice over Internet Telephony) system would increase efficiency while lowering operating expenses.
