What is VoIP Dialing?

VoIP stands for “Voice over IP”, or “Voice over Internet”. It works be converting audio from your phone into a digital signal that can be sent over an internet connection. As long as the recipient has stable internet or a landline, you can speak to anyone in the world. The Fileboard Dialer’s monthly VoIP add-on is $2 per month per user, an unlimited subscription for larger teams is available for $25 per month.
Note: VoIP calling is currently only available in the U.S., call recipients must be in the contiguous U.S. as well.

What is Bridge Dialing?

Bridge dialing utilizes a bridge function to connect telephone lines and cell towers using an internet network.

The Fileboard Dialer’s Bridge add-on is $3 per month per user.
