Choosing a VoIP Phone Service for Your Voicent Trial

How to test for free, and why you shouldn’t.

Voicent software supports any major VoIP phone service, such as Skype, Callcentric, Vonage Soft Phone, RingCentral, etc.

Most VoIP phone services offer free, stripped-down versions of their service. You can use these free services to test Voicent’s software, but we recommend that you spend just a few dollars to get business-quality service on which to test our software. Here’s why:

Free VoIP accounts have strict limitations. Most limit the number of channels (lines) you can have and the number of calls you can make. These restrictions reduce the power and value of a product like Voicent’s BroadcastByPhone, which can potentially make hundreds or even thousands of calls for you each day.

Typically, free VoIP accounts won’t let you make calls to regular landlines or cell phones. You will only be able to call the phone numbers of other users of that VoIP service.

If you don’t have VoIP service now, you will want to get it eventually. Why not use the time testing Voicent’s software to also test the services of a VoIP provider?

VoIP phone service is not expensive. With a monthly subscription you can get virtually unlimited calling to a specific area or even worldwide. Even with a pay-as-you-go plan, VoIP calls cost pennies–or even fractions of a penny–per minute.

Premium VoIP service includes useful VoIP features, as well as faster, higher-quality connections.

Below, you will find two choices for VoIP phone service providers you can use to test Voicent software.
NOTE: You don’t have to use either Callcentric or SkypeConnect in order to use
Voicent software.
These are just two of the many services
available on the market today.

However, we’ve found that Callcentric and SkypeConnect are easy to use and have free or low-cost plans that allow for easy, inexpensive testing.

Which one should you choose for your test? In general:

Choose Callcentric if you only need service for one or two lines (in VoIP they are called channels). Callcentric has limited scalability, so it may not be the right choice for you if you are going to need a lot of lines.

Choose SkypeConnect, Skype’s business-level service, if you expect to need numerous lines.
