INX Wins $6 Million UC Overhaul Project from Travis County, Texas
INX, a trusted provider of IP communications and data center solutions for enterprise organizations, recently won a major government sector contract.
In a press release, INX announced that Travis County Government, the local county government agency for Austin, Texas and its surrounding cities, has awarded INX a unified communications overhaul project.
The Travis County Government agency provides an array of services to its one million citizens. In an effort to streamline agency communications and improve user efficiency, Travis County recently made significant investment to upgrade its communication systems. As a part of this initiative, the agency went through a competitive procurement process to replace the legacy TDM-based phone system, with a state-of-the-art IP-based solution.
INX was awarded the multi-phase, multi year project contact to provide Travis County with an agency wide Unified Communication System, with over 4,000 phone users covering over 30 different sites. INX will provide a complete solution consisting of Cisco’s Unified Communication Manager and Unified Contact Center applications running on Cisco’s Unified Computing System.
Post implementation, INX will also provide managed services to provide ongoing monitoring and support. The project represents over $6 million to INX in products and professional services revenue, the officials at INX revealed in a press release.
“We are excited and honored to have been awarded such an important project by Travis County. The unified communications and collaboration solution that we are deploying with Travis County will create significant and positive long term impact throughout all of the county’s organizations,” Senior VP of Sales and Field Operations for INX, Andy Cadwell noted in a statement.
“The INX team has been an excellent resource and a pleasure to work with. We are confident in the success of this project thanks to their involvement,” CIO for Travis County Joe Harlow acknowledged.
Earlier this year, INX announced the appointment of Philip Rydzewski as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer.
