We switched some time ago to voiceover IP. In this system, we maintain a  main number and each staff also has a direct line, easily forwarded. Staff who need to also have an iPhone provided. The biggest value is the ongoing importance of a “mainline” for those uncertain with whom they would like to speak (e.g., who issues transcripts?) or reluctant to “bother” senior staff with a simple question (e.g., when does registration close for the suicide prevention workshop?)

Agree o landline. I see this as another steps to shrinkage and I have always felt that a larger profile, not a smaller one, serves our members and our issues better.

We have a landline and will continue it.  It comes with our bundled internet service and is of minimal cost in comparison.  Paul

Our office phone system is circling the drain. I’m curious, have any of you done away with main line number and moved to where each staff has a cell?  We have land lines. Depending on role, we provide a cell phone. So, all but two employees have a cell. I’m considering doing away with the landline, but wanted to know if anyone has done that already and how it worked.
