Cattaraugus-Allegany Board of Cooperative Educational Services (CA BOCES)

School safety for its 22 school districts is always top of mind for this educational services organization. But when high costs for an old communications system started getting in the way, they switched to a Mitel solution that provided state-of-the-art mass notification capabilities for all its schools at a much better price point.

CA BOCES wanted to make sure each of the schools in its district was properly prepared and protected against any type of security threat. The challenge was to find a solution that met educational funding guidelines while serving its expansive footprint with advanced technology. Partner Rel Comm led them to a Mitel mass notification solution that provided everything they needed at a reasonable cost, with simple administration for their 22 districts along with flexibility to grow and integrate with other technologies.


"Mitel's system had a high level of compatibility and was a budget-friendly solution for mass notification. We found they provided the best combinations within the overall solution."

- Mike Graf, Information Technology Director, CA BOCES
