Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a global leader in real-time business, cloud and mobile communications, is offering an incentive of 40 percent off retail for E-Rate funded purchases to help K-12 schools realize the benefits of implementing a cloud-based solution before government funding for these voice services phases out in 2019.
Cloud-based platforms provide a secure, low cost solution with superior quality and reliability. Mitel’s cloud-based solutions earn high marks from education customers. Following recent deployments, more school districts report better communications among staff, greater productivity, and improved interaction with students and the community.
“We wanted to standardize communications. A lot of our buildings didn’t even have voicemail. Everything was coming through the main office and notes were being left in mailboxes. That’s one of the greatest benefits of Mitel’s system—it allows us to communicate better internally, with students and the community,” said Scott Cittadino, assistant superintendent of Technology, Wauconda Community Unit School District 118.
“Schools are turning to the cloud to modernize and standardize as they look to simplify communications, lower cost of ownership, acquire more features and increase reliability. Mitel’s education solutions also help them ultimately derive value from the practical application of empowering staff, improving parents’ involvement, enhancing safety and enabling better student outcomes,” said Wes Durow, chief marketing officer, Mitel.
