Skpye is extending its Skype for SIP beta program so that businesses can use Skype for SIP with their existing SIP-based PBX or Unified Communications (UC) systems and save money on international calls.

All a business needs to do is create and register a Skype Business Control Panel, then follow the instructions to configure Skype for SIP to work with its existing system.

Skype usage can be controlled from a single point and billing can be managed centrally, while Skype Credit, subscriptions and online numbers can be easily allocated to users.

Skype for SIP is already being tested by Maxim Integrated Products, a manufacturer of semiconductor products, which has deployed Skype’s desktop software to more than 2,000 employees in 70 locations around the world.

Walter Curd, CIO of Maxim Integrated Products, said: “With Skype for SIP, our ShoreTel PBX will now enable calls from desktop phones to go out via Skype. This will allow us to capture more calling traffic via Skype and save even more money, while making it invisible to our employees.”
