Hope you have your popcorn, because it was another barnburner this week in Unified Communications; sit back and enjoy the show!
The Buffalo Bills scored a touchdown this week when they announced a new partnership with UC provider PremCom. Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Bills administration building and call center will experience ShoreTel telephone and communications equipment. The Bills expect to see improved productivity and efficiency in the ticket office, improving the overall fan/customer service.
“As we’re Bills fans through-and-through, PremCom is thrilled to work with the team to install a ShoreTel system,” said Joe Griffo, Vice President of PremCom.
While the Bills were making news on the ground, FluentStream was making news in the cloud with its cloud-based voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) business phone solution with an authentic bundle of infrastructure application as service (IaaS) and software application as Service (Saas). Aside from the reasonable price tag, the cloud-delivered service is bundled with a plethora of integral communication features.
