Whether it’s an expedition to mine vital supplies from the center of the Earth or a journey to harvest the ocean’s resources at the ends of the Earth, organizations working in harsh and extreme environments need reliable, cost-effective communications.

Increasingly, these organizations are discovering that ShoreTel’s distributed architecture with plug-and-play functionality and centralized management capabilities helps maintain business continuity with high quality communications in rugged and often potentially treacherous situations.

For instance, the Glacier Fish Company has made a major breakthrough in effective and affordable ship-to-shore communications with ShoreTel.

ShoreTel also is helping the Grande Cache Coal Corporation avoid losses in excess of $1 million per day due to communication downtime between their mines, satellite offices, and Calgary headquarters.

In addition, what used to be $700 per call out due to the remote nature of the site, is now pennies to the dollar with ShoreTel’s reliable and stable systems – remote management has never been easier and more cost effective.

In short, Thayer Ramahi, senior infrastructure engineer for Grande Cache Coal Corporation, states: “By eliminating mining stoppages and maintenance fees, ShoreTel is directly improving our bottom line.”

Our CEO John Combs concisely attributes our success in these harsh environments: “Companies are discovering that the technologies that deliver these capabilities, including a fully distributed architecture and dynamic voice traffic compression for optimizing quality over low bandwidth, make ShoreTel the ideal solution for environments that traditional telephony has never served well.”
