The Palm Restaurant Group Finds Business Continuity in the Cloud with Evolve IP
WAYNE, Pa. --(Business Wire)--
IP, The Cloud Services Company™, today announced that The
Palm Restaurant Group is using Evolve IP's (News - Alert) award-winning cloud
platform for business continuity and unified communications. The Palm is
using Evolve IP's unified cloud infrastructure to replace its wide area
network (WAN), update its legacy PBX (News - Alert) phone system, and manage security
at 25 restaurants. In addition, The Palm Restaurant Group is backing up
its data off-site in the Evolve IP cloud.
With the roll out to its restaurants and headquarters completed, The
Palm has gained real business continuity, a critical element to
successfully running its highly rated restaurants. "For the first time
in years, I don't have to worry about faulty systems, or worse, systems
going down and our provider being unreachable," says Kelly McCardle, IT
Director at The Palm Restaurant Group. "The real test came recently when
our area was hit with a bout of severe weather. The storms knocked out
power all around us, but we stayed open and operational the entire time.
That's when we knew we made the right decision to go with Evolve IP."
"Fine dining establishments, such as The Palm, provide superior customer
service, and to ensurethey meet their customers' expectations, their
critical communications systems must not only be available, they must
work flawlessly," says Tim Allen, Chief Sales Officer at Evolve IP.
"We're thrilled to be providing The Palm with not only the best cloud
services available, but with the same kind of service it provides to its
Prior to using Evolve IP, The Palm Restaurant Group struggled to manage
multiple carriers, phone systems, and vendors. It also relied on costly
premise-based hardware and software to meet its unified communications
and file management needs. With the switch to Evolve IP, The Palm
Restaurant Group now has a single point of contact and is also enjoying
significant cost savings. In fact, The Palm Restaurant Group deployed
Evolve IP's HPBX solutions for about the same price it was paying for
just T1 lines for its legacy on-premise systems.
The Palm Restaurant Group is a fine dining destination for friends,
families, and business colleagues in the U.S., London, and Mexico. Pio
Bozzi and John Ganzi opened The Palm's flagship restaurant, The Palm
One, in 1926 in New York City. This restaurant is recognized as the
oldest restaurant in New York City still owned and operated by the same
family. Today, the group is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and serves
over 5,000 meals a day at 27 locations.
