NEC SV 9100 Phone System

We have completed a phone system replacement at Corporate Architecture Ltd. The new system is IP based and takes full advantage of cheaper calls and line rentals. All calls are now made by SIP using the internet as a carrier. This has saved Corporate Architecture Ltd 50% on the cost of all calls made and the line rental.

We project managed the change, and after meeting with the customer to find out their requirements we let them know what technologies were available to them.

90% of the new telephones were softphones and JABRA PRO 935 MS headsets.
