Multi-Link Cuts Phone Costs for State and Local Government

Containing costs is the number one issue facing state and local governments today.  Revenues are decreasing while demands for service are increasing.

Telecommunication costs are a significant budget item for many agencies. With the need to support hundreds of fax machines and remote data collection devices, each with its own phone line, costs can quickly add up. With each additional phone line costing around $50 per month, or $600 per year, this can dramatically affect the cost to operate remote equipment.

In today’s economic environment successful government operations will require innovative solutions to maintain their levels of service to the public. Reducing telecommunication costs and making efficient use of resources are key elements stretching budget dollars.

Installing The Stick®, a phone line sharing device, wherever multiple phone lines are required can reduce expenses by thousands of dollars. Many times each location is able to reduce the requirement for two or more phone lines, saving $100-$150 per month, or more.
