Sydney, Australia, Aug 22, 2016 -- ShoreTel(R) (NASDAQ: SHOR), a provider of unified communications (UC) solutions and phone systems, announced the Brisbane Lions™ Australian Football Club has chosen ShoreTel Connect(R) as its unified communications and contact centre solution. The ShoreTel solution will help the club to improve communications and interaction among its staff, and with Brisbane Lions members, sponsors and fans.
The solution, which will be designed, implemented and supported by ShoreTel partner One Solution Mobile & Data, will cover Brisbane Lions’ headquarters and home ground at The Gabba stadium and at the LIONS@springwood social club, both in Brisbane. It will also extend to the Brisbane Lions office at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, home to the Fitzroy Museum. Over 100 Brisbane Lions staff across the three sites will have access to ShoreTel unified communications, and the ShoreTel contact centre solution will be rolled out to the Brisbane Lions membership team.
"The technology available from ShoreTel is industry leading, opening up new possibilities for the club," said Brett Stares, IT Manager, Brisbane Lions. "A single unified service will provide a more efficient and effective method for Brisbane Lions staff and affiliates to communicate."
"We’re pleased to provide the Brisbane Lions with a state-of-the-art ShoreTel system that will enable the team, and the organisation, to transform their communications by enhancing and creating engaging interactions," said George Papas, One Solution’s Managing Director.
The deployment is expected to be completed by the end of August 2016.
