Broadview UC Solution Selected for Massachusetts Schools and Government Agencies

December 10, 2014

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has selected Broadview Networks, a leading provider of cloud-based communications and information technology services, to deliver VoIP services to all educational institutions throughout the state. Covering public and private schools, this contract pertains to primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, charter schools and technical and vocational schools. The service will also be provided to various other municipalities throughout Massachusetts and some neighboring states.

Broadview was awarded the ITT46 and ITC54 network services contracts in Massachusetts, which join the J04 contract awarded by the Massachusetts Higher Education Consortium to deliver traditional voice, data and unified communications solutions to eligible organizations. The company's OfficeSuite solution is highly acclaimed and includes an IP-based phone system, unlimited nationwide calling, HD video, Web and audio conferencing, mobile apps, online fax service and a website for easily making updates and changes to the system.

OfficeSuite will bring numerous benefits to the Commonwealth, perhaps the most important being considerable savings and drastically improved efficiency. The service is available as a monthly expense instead of requiring capital investment and does not necessitate a maintenance contract. A comprehensive unified communications plan is essential for keeping up with modern technology and ensuring institutions can function optimally.

“We look forward to working together with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to help their municipalities and schools function at their highest potential,” said Grant Pollock, Broadview’s Regional Director of Sales. “We are proud to bring these schools, police and fire stations, other municipal offices and many other vital state agencies our suite of cloud-based technologies to help improve their efficiency and ease of communication.”

This is not the first time Broadview has worked with a statewide entity, having previously provided solutions to NJEDge.Net, a non-profit technology consortium of New Jersey academic and research institutions. OfficeSuite and other services offered by the company's are also available to schools and libraries participating in the FCC's E-Rate program, which provides members with discounted technology solutions.
