What are the Benefits.
Continuity of Support
If the upgrade did not take place, in the event of a technical issue the support provided will be based on ‘best endeavours’ with no guarantee the issue will be resolved.
The risk of failure and the impact posed is currently the highest scoring risk on the digital risk register.
More cost effective than the current solution
Using the Internet, calls travel as packets of data on shared lines, avoiding the tolls of the public switched telephone network
