SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ShoreTel® (NASDAQ: SHOR), the leading provider of brilliantly simple unified communications (UC) solutions and phone systems, today announced the continued success of ShoreTel Connect™ with new medical and education customer wins, Cape Medical Supply and Pennsylvania State Education Association.
ShoreTel Connect is a unique, single solution and user interface that provides business communications from the cloud, onsite or a hybrid combination of both. Connect is designed to simplify the way IT deploys, manages, scales, and secures phone systems. With ShoreTel Connect, businesses gain flexibility and customer insights and increase their ability to collaborate with employees inside as well as partners and customers outside the company – all while lowering IT operating costs.
Cape Medical Supply has a busy call center in multiple locations. They selected ShoreTel Connect CLOUD for its scalability and upgradability to ensure investment protection, as well as extensive reporting tools and the ability to integrate email and chat into the agent's queue. The Connect CLOUD solution allows Cape Medical Supply to get insights on how the system performs in real time, identify heavy call times and more effectively reallocate resources. Cape Medical Supply also relies on ShoreTel Mobility to improve communications for employees on the go, and uses ShoreTel Scribe for email transcription.
"ShoreTel allows us to remap the way that our patients and partners can effectively contact us. It also allows our management team to have much greater visibility and insight into how specific teams are performing relative to the volume that is being pushed at them," said Gary Sheehan, CEO at Cape Medical Supply. "We absolutely made the right decision going with ShoreTel Connect CLOUD."
Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA) selected ShoreTel Connect ONSITE for its centralized management from a single web dashboard, four-digit dialing, and call routing customization. The new system will enable PSEA to save upwards of $25,000 annually by eliminating third-party support. PSEA has 14 offices across Pennsylvania that serve 180,000 members and several hundred employees.
"With ShoreTel it's easy to make all moves/adds/deletes/changes right from my desktop. We're also saving money since we can dial other offices or employees directly with a four-digit extension," said Doug Good, IT support coordinator at PSEA. "Using ShoreTel Connect ONSITE is like stepping out of a horse and buggy and onto the space shuttle."
PSEA also provides telephony services to tenants that rent space in PSEA-owned buildings. They have decided to rollout ShoreTel Connect CLOUD to these tenants.
ShoreTel Connect simplifies the way companies deploy, manage and maintain business communications – no matter how many sites or employees. ShoreTel Connect enables companies to design communications system any way they choose: as a managed service from the cloud, as a hardware system managed internally, or as a hybrid deployment where some locations and applications are managed in the cloud and others are managed onsite.
