School Board Lowers Maintenance Costs and Improves School Communications

Benbria, a provider of intelligent notification solutions, is pleased to announce the Western Québec School Board (http://cswq.wqsb.qc.ca) is installing Benbria’s BlazeCast notification and IP paging system in its schools across the district in a staged deployment. The school board is using BlazeCast to integrate overhead paging and bells for daily school announcements at one of its newest schools.

The Western Québec School Board is the first in Québec and one of the first public institutions to install Benbria BlazePoint Talkback IP Speakers, which enables advanced paging functions to both improve safety and lower ongoing maintenance. Additionally, BlazeCast is replacing the existing outdated paging system at one of Western Quebec’s largest high schools, which serves more than 1700 students.

“We are very pleased with BlazeCast, which does all of our paging in three schools and works seamlessly with our phone system,” says Greg Charron, superintendent of buildings at Western Québec School Board. “We haven’t seen anything else on the market that is comparable.”

“We look forward to expanding the use of BlazeCast as a messaging tool,” adds Paul Lamoureux, assistant director general at Western Québec School Board, “such as for human resources, transportation, and school taxation. We see many more benefits with using BlazeCast for better communications to stakeholders, parents, and community.”

“BlazeCast is ideally suited for a school board like Western Québec,” said Ronald Richardson, VP Sales for Benbria, “By unifying overhead paging and bells on to one integrated IP network, school boards realize significant savings on maintenance and administrators have the ability to communicate with students and staff from anywhere.”
