“Higher Education: Schools Lower Costs and Avoid Disasters by Upgrading to the Cloud”

Presentation Description:
Broadview Networks, a leader in cloud-based voice solutions, enables educational institutions to realize immediate savings while ensuring that their lines of communication are available no matter what. Disasters in the business world mean loss of revenue, but disasters in the educational ecosystem have far-reaching repercussions as the safety of students and faculties is at stake. Broadview is proud to provide redundant voice services that keep schools’ lines of communication open in the event of service interruption due to campus emergency or natural disaster. Join Peter Parrinello, Sr. Vice President of Broadview Networks’ Government Markets division, as he details how Broadview’s award-winning solutions and customer service have helped schools in the NJEDge community upgrade their communications infrastructure and reduce their cost of telecommunications networks and services. Educational institutions in New Jersey benefit from the company’s advanced, converged network for reliable and robust voice services.

Mr. Parrinello will discuss Broadview’s new GSA enhanced services for its Higher Education customers. He will be assisted by Joy Blair, Administrator of the NJEdge program, as she demonstrates Broadview’s Web-based account management tool, eCare Enterprise. This award-winning tool can be accessed anytime, anywhere and from virtually any device so that changes to the phone system can be updated in seconds to accommodate schools’ rapidly-changing needs.
