Indian Wells, CA (PRWEB) October 9, 2007
VIP Tone today announced the award of a multi-year contract for VIP PBX™ services with Calaveras Unified School District (CUSD). This is the third contract VIP Tone has been awarded with Northern California school districts in the last 12 months. Hayward Unified School District and Morgan Hill Unified School District are currently using the VIP PBX services from VIP Tone. As an integral part of their VoIP project, CUSD is deploying IP phones to all of the district locations and is also upgrading the district wide network infrastructure while deploying a wireless network in all district locations.
VIP PBX is the first telephony and unified messaging solution designed specifically for schools. It offers an innovative, reliable Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) communications platform delivering voice, video, messaging and collaboration services to replace old telephony systems.
"We are excited about our partnerships with these school districts," said Robert Iskander, VIP Tone's founder and CEO. "We are confident that the VIP PBX services will provide these districts with a significant return on investment in addition to improved communications services."
While connecting all schools in a district into a single, converged communications switch, VIP PBX offers support for a unified dialing plan between multiple school locations with enhanced collaboration tools to each user offering un-matched reliability and emergency response at each school regardless of their location. The VIP PBX service reduces initial capital outlay for perpetual software licenses and system integration costs with a monthly subscription fee based on a Software-as-a-Service delivery model. This saves school districts and regional education centers thousands of dollars on their communication costs every month.
"The use of VoIP enables substantial telecom cost savings, freeing up funds that may be reinvested in student programs," said Jim Frost, Superintendent, Calaveras Unified School District. "With VIP PBX we will improve communications and productivity for district employees while improving our communications with the community as well."
