News : Boston Borough Council Moves to IP
Boston Borough, UK, Feb 10, 2015 -- Boston Borough Council has saved on its annual telephony costs by transitioning to a modern IP communications system provided by systems integrator, Foehn.
As well as achieving significant financial savings, the Council has been able to make efficiency gains, introduce flexible working, better measure and improve call centre performance, and now has in place a more robust and resilient disaster recovery plan.
Serving the borough of Boston in southeast Lincolnshire, the Council began a major transformation of its ICT that included reviewing its ageing onsite legacy telephony system.
"The move to hosted IP telephony became an important part of the transformation, especially when the Council realized that significant cost savings could be made, but not to the detriment of service delivery," says Matthew Clarke, Strategic ICT advisor to Boston Borough Council.
Foehn’s IP telephony solution is based on the Open Source Asterisk platform.
