After winning over millions of consumers to its largely free Internet telephone services, Skype is preparing to go after businesses eager to reduce their telecommunication costs.
Skype, a provider of VOIP (voice of Internet Protocol) services acquired by Ebay for US$2.6 billion last year, is developing a range of offerings targeted at the enterprise market, said Skype Senior Director Jonathan Christensen, at the Von conference in Berlin on Monday.
"We're currently working on a call-center service," Christensen said. "And there are more enterprise services on the way. So stay tuned."
