Golden State Warriors Team Up With ShoreTel

    The Golden State Warriors' selection of ShoreTel to be its unified communications provider places the organization along with an expanding group of professional sports teams using ShoreTel’s UC solutions.

    As they battle the Denver Nuggets in their first playoff appearance in six seasons, the Warriors are also moving ahead using ShoreTel Mobility to support its front office and contact center operations and enable its workers to communicate on their own devices at both the team’s downtown Oakland office and at Oracle Arena.

    “Partnering with best in class companies such as ShoreTel continues to show our dedication to being the most technologically advanced team in the league,” said Chip Bowers, the Warriors chief marketing officer. “We chose ShoreTel for its ease of installation and management, along with its flexibility and reliability, elements we needed to engage our fans.”

    The Warriors are joining another Bay Area sports team, the San Francisco Giants, as a ShoreTel partner. The Giants are using ShoreTel’s IP-based communications system for its employees and fans at AT&T Park and off-site facilities.

    ShoreTel has close partnerships throughout the sports world, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Washington Wizards, Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics.

    With ShoreTel Mobility, email, voicemail and texts are easily accessible, even when employees are in motion, so the Warriors staff can now respond faster and have greater choice for how they accomplish work.

    “It’s a win-win as the Warriors continue to deliver on the court, and the ShoreTel IP phone system with integrated UC delivers scale and business intelligence off the court,” said Kevin Gavin, chief marketing officer at ShoreTel. “The Warriors are well positioned to effortlessly communicate with their fans using ShoreTel’s brilliantly simple UC solution.”
