What type of Skype account is best for use in ACT?

I'm new to the world of ACT and bordering on being dubbed an admin.  Regarding skype functionality in ACT I know its there which is very exciting.

 

My questions are: 

is the skype functionality a paid add on? 

If so what is the rough cost (CDN) per user for the add-on

And what are the skype account requirements best aimed at calling volumes between 70-100+ calls/day per user, most of whom are non-skype account holders?

It depends on the type of connection you want.

 

It is possible to dial out through Skype in a limited, but messy, way for free.

 

The best way is with an add-on such as itDial - http://www.glcomputing.com.au/main/56/1

 

As to dialling from Skype... where are the numbers located?

The majority of the numbers dialed (95%) will be in the local calling area. The remainder will be to long distance numbers in North America. I've reccommended the North American plan for our users.
