Three reasons I use Skype

Three reasons I use Skype.
If you've called my office before, chances
are you've communicated with me when I was using my portable VOIP system.

I've been using VOIP Technology to communicate
with my staff and clients for close to a decade, but it always meant using
costly H.323 endpoints, or unpredictable software. That's all changed.
I've ditched my mobile voice kit.
Why? Skype.
Skype is transforming the way I communicate with others over the
internet. Download it, install it, and it works. It works. Oh, it's
also free.

This evening, I enjoyed a Skype conference
call with Marc Orchant, in New Mexico, and Michael Sampson, in New Zealand.
If you listened to my recent podcast from the digital sandbox, then you
heard David and me use Skype to drop in on Marc on our geek day. Amazing,
isn't it?

Skype boosts my productivity in three

  • I can see when my contacts are on-line
    — presence awareness
  • I can chat instantly with my contacts
  • I can instantly talk with one or more
    of my contacts

In short. It is now easier for me to communicate with people and for them
to communicate with me. The barriers have been lowered.

My VOIP address has been on my business
card for years. In that time, only a handful of people have had the tools
(or ability) to successfully call me via Now, with Skype,
anyone can.

Alright, I'm beginning to sound like
a commercial for Skype. Skype Skype Skype. I can't help it.

If you'd like to say hello, my Skype
address is eProductivityGuy….
