|ATM S.A. offers outsourcing of telephone switchboard operations at office buildings and retail centers|
When phone calls used to cost 0.29 zloty per pulse, enterprising developers and commercial property managers could earn thousands or even tens of thousands of zlotys each month by operating telephone switchboards in their buildings. Thanks to the revenue generated, they were able to provide maintenance of the switchboards and deliver added value to those leasing space in the premises. Today, however, the situation has changed. Most lessees organize telecommunications services themselves, the price of calls has fallen to a few cents per minute, but the costs of operating a switchboard remain unchanged, and often exceed the revenue earned from providing telecommunications services.
