Telecommunications - Least Cost Routing

What is LCR? LCR or Least Cost Routing is a solution delivering lower cost communications from your phone lines to any destination in the world.

How does it work? Datatech UK operates its own phone network, using world class suppliers such as Colt, C&W and Energis. We utilise advanced computer programmes to exploit the very best tariff for each call, to each destination at that particular time of day.

This is done using indirect access, initially via BT's networks - but at a lower cost. Direct connection is also available, subject to location.

Because Datatech UK is an independent company, we are not constrained by any one network provider.  Therefore, we can find the most competitive tariffs based on your specific pattern of usage, to give you the lowest possible call charges.  This is done on a second by second basis, making adjustments as tariffs change.

We can even ensure that your non-geographic numbers (0800 and free phone numbers for example) are routed through the most cost effective call tariff options.

Mobile traffic also benefits with the installation of one or more Premicell units for reduced rates.

Companies with multiple sites are able to create a one bill solution, abolishing the need to collate numerous bills.

Who can benefit? Anyone can benefit.  We can connect all types of lines, including

  • Business lines
  • Fax lines
  • Direct or modem lines
  • Residential lines

    This service is available to all potential (as well as existing) clients requiring a greater choice for routing calls and lower charges.

    Datatech UK's customers can save up to 60% on their call charges (compared to BT standard rate).

    Datatech UK simultaneously delivers three major benefits,

  • Lower call charges
  • No minimum length of contract
  • Single point of contact for the provision and billing of call charges,
  • Maintenance and equipment.


    Lower call costs do not mean a compromise in the quality and reliability of the network infrastructures used.  We utilise the best network providers to ensure that you get the right service, with the reassurance of knowing that you have year round support.

    Many of our network providers also offer a Fraud Prevention service whereby your call usage is constantly monitored, and any unusual call patterns are brought to your attention before they spiral out of control.

    Instant online expenditure and management information

    Low call costs are important, but they are not the whole story when running strategies for cost and savings efficiencies.  You also need to manage telecommunications usage within the organisation.

    Our least cost routing solutions provide you with the opportunity to seamlessly integrate this management with your computer network, to give you up to the minute call management data through the Internet. You can have instant access to itemised call charges, discounts, and usage patterns whenever you need the information.
