It is the beginning of yet another era in the field of communications. As technology becomes available to more users every day, consumer expectations toward customer service continue to increase. For this reason, many organisations find themselves in the position to upgrade their communication infrastructure to meet high volumes of queries in a time-sensitive fashion. 

Whilst the private sector is widely known for its frontline participation in technological innovation, public institutions such as local councils are also integrating next-generation solutions into their existing communication environment. This, in turn, has opened the sector to unrivalled possibilities. 

Case Study: Milton Keynes Council’s Successful Communication Infrastructure Redesign

A great example of the successful integration of a cutting-edge communication solution into a public institution’s pre-existing infrastructure can be found at Milton Keynes Council. A local government and education authority in Buckinghamshire, England, the council provides a broad range of services to its nearly quarter-million residents. 

On their quest to facilitate those tasks relative to tax, libraries, waste collection, and more, Milton Keynes launched a collaboration with Mitel. Through this collaboration, the council aims to virtualise - therefore expedite - the delivery of most of its services.

Making the Best Out of the Existing Infrastructure

Along with completing a virtual service project, the joint effort consisted of adopting Mitel's telephony solution while integrating it with the council’s online customer service platform already in place. 

The success of the operation was apparent. As well as delivering consistent customer service and good quality information, the council managed to streamline its telephony across the organisation. They also upgraded infrastructure, allowing council employees to expand their options in terms of flexibility and remote work capabilities. 

Milton Keynes is only one of the several councils that chose to collaborate with Mitel to better serve their residents. The positive outcome of these endeavours is likely to inspire more public institutions to integrate their communication infrastructure with modern telephony solutions.
