Adrian College ShoreTel Success Story

Citing its ease of management and ability to incorporate existing infrastructure equipment, Adrian College chose ShoreTel. ShoreTel and its reseller, AmeriNet, provided Adrian College with three ShoreTel T1, 12ShoreTel 60, four ShoreTel 40, and 38 ShoreTel 120 Voice Switchesconnecting 42 of its buildings. A voicemail server was also deployed, as well as 320 ShoreTel IP Phones. With over 1,235 extension licenses in use, including `analog phones and IP telephones, students can bring their own phones from home to be hooked directly into the ShoreTel system.

ACC offers four brands of VoIP solutions, with varying depths of features and advantages
Is your business interested in a new communication technology that is armed with new features that will ultimately save you time and money? At a glance, Voice over IP is simply communication over an internet network, which allows multiple locations to be brought together over the internet.
Questions you should be considering when thinking VoIP:
The simplest way to get in touch with a mobile workforce is through their cellular phone. With a VoIP solution, your employees could use their smartphone as an extension of their desk phone, including their deskphone features like transfer, conference, hold, directory, and more! All of this can be done through either cellular, OR WiFi.
With WiFi usage, your employees could be making expense-free calls from any public WiFi network or within their home or business. Is cellular connectivity an issue at home or at work? Mobility options could provide an ideal solution.
ACC can work with your cellular bills and tweak your employees minute plans to show you how you could be saving lots of money!
Your computer can become your telephone - great for call centers and wireless offices!
Voice mail to Email
Check voice mail on your computer like a YouTube feed, or on your desk telephone!
Instant messaging and video conferencing
Save time and money with simple and effective IP conferencing
However, over the past twenty years a new era of technology called Voice over Internet Protocol has been making waves in the industry. VoIP essentially packages and transmits your voice as data over the internet or through your private business network in a secure and cost effective manner. With it comes a host of new features and capabilities not available in traditional technology: ease of use & management, less hardware, no single point of failure, and lower monthly bills to see an overall ROI via reduced maintenance costs and least cost routing. And better yet, many of these solutions can be introduced to your pre-existing telephone network!
Over the past century, businesses have been using telephone lines that connect to the telephone company's network to make external calls, while using a private branch exchange (PBX) to route calls internally. Although this technology has evolved over many years, the advances in technology have been building off the same structure. Many people are satisfied with this method, and ACC's foundation has been built on this structure and service - we can certainly offer a traditional solution.
Telephone systems for today's small businesses need to be simple to use and manage, while keeping your business and customers within an arm's reach. Along with these factors, choosing the right system for your business can ultimately save you a remarkable amount of time and money. But if your current system isn't broken, what are the advantages of making a major change? -
