Pooled Minutes

Departments should consider Pooled Minutes per the following guidelines. Pooled minutes have advantages over individual plans per user. To take advantage of a pool plan, you must have 5 or more lines.

  1. If a department has users with fluctuating usage and does not want to bother with overage charges on a regular basis, a pool plan would even out costs and minutes across all users.
  2. A pool plan lowers the administrative work on an account as there is one pool of minutes with each user contributing minutes to the pool and one bill for all phones within the pool. The administrator of the bill does not have to worry about changing plans constantly due to overages. When the administrator of the bill feels like their users are getting close to using their total pool each month, the pool can be increased to cushion higher usage.
  3. Individual plans have their benefit if the user needs to apply their specific costs to a specific budget or grant money.
