Kaukauna Area School District was dealing with a four-year-old leased Cisco VoIP system and a relatively modern network infrastructure. But when Cisco declined to give the district a timely buyout option, they decided to look elsewhere.
“We needed a partner solution that would guarantee seamless interoperability with all the switching gear and network operations. After looking at possibilities from Cisco, Mitel, Avaya, and ShoreTel, we knew the answer. We spoke to other customers of ShoreTel, as well as our reseller, and quickly gained a confidence that ShoreTel would be the right solution for us.” - Bob Summers, IT Manager, Kaukauna Area School District. They chose ShoreTel and as a result are saving $22,000 a year!
