News : Brunswick Relies on ShoreTel for Global Communications Solution
Sunnyvale, Calif., Jan. 21, 2014 -- ShoreTel(R) (NASDAQ: SHOR), a provider of phone systems and unified communications solutions, announces that Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) has chosen ShoreTel to displace legacy Avaya/Nortel systems at sites around the globe. About one-third of the sites are live now with more deploying each month.
Brunswick selected ShoreTel’s unified communications and Enterprise Contact Center solutions to enable employees to work more efficiently from anywhere in the world. The company is also deploying ShoreTel Mobility in the U.S. and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), which it predicts will help cut Brunswick’s mobile phone roaming costs in half.
"Whether it’s supporting new business processes or scaling up to incorporate different geographic locations, ShoreTel’s unified communications platform has given us ease of deployment and flexibility," said Mike Tegtmeyer, director of enterprise network services at Brunswick. "Above all, it has a clear return on investment for our business, where it will pay for itself within 2.5 years at some of our sites."
"We understand Brunswick’s need to implement an adaptable platform that will support the company in a fast-moving market," said David Petts, senior vice president of worldwide sales at ShoreTel. "Because our system deploys, scales, and grows with ease, Brunswick now has the peace of mind that its single, unified platform is easily expanded across as many sites, or even countries, as needed."
