Skokie, IL (PRWEB) April 27, 2006
Rauland-Borg, the leader in communications and media management solutions for K-12 schools, announces Telecenter VI, the first completely integrated system to combine phone, emergency communications and paging/intercom on a single Voice over IP platform.
“Schools have unique communication needs especially when compared to the business down the street,” noted Maureen Pajerski, VP of Sales & Marketing for Rauland-Borg. “A phone can meet the everyday communication requirements between school staff and the outside world, but it isn’t the best choice for internal communications — especially during emergencies.” She added, “Two-way hands-free intercom communication works best for short messages. Teachers can respond from any location in the classroom. In an emergency situation, rather than repeatedly dialing telephone extensions from a phone system, an intercom automatically contacts administrative staff freeing the teacher to address the situation at hand. Having a phone system with an integrated intercom is really the complete communications solution for a school. ”
“What schools and districts like about this system,” noted Stacie Dinse, Product Manager for Telecenter VI, “is that the system was designed with their specific needs in mind. Individual schools – and school districts – now have a sophisticated telephony system offering a host of advanced features AND they also have the school features they need – like intercom, paging, emergency tones, and class change bells — all from the same user interface.”
The system’s critical life safety features include 911 call alerts to key administrative staff, emergency all-page from any phone, remote door lock/access control, facility-wide lock down/take cover tones, and telephone trunk seizure to ensure that 911 calls always go through. Telecenter VI also offers a wide spectrum of features facilitating parent-teacher communications including voicemail, homework helpline, and an audio bulletin board.
