RALEIGH-State Employees' CU here is aiming to save $1.5 million per year in long distance costs by the time it finishes rolling out its new Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone system.

The $23-billion, 1.6-million member CU will start the three-year process by converting its member contact center, which is expected to be completed by Q1 2012. After that SECU's six operations centers will be switched to VoIP-ideally by the end of 2012-followed by SECU's 240 branches.
