At a Glance
Collingwood Home Hardware and Building Centre wanted to modernize their communications because they had an older Toshiba phone system that wasn’t meeting the needs of residents or their staff. After an internal audit, Collingwood Home Hardware and Building Centre’s three main objectives of the upgrade were: to have a system capable of handling increased customer call volume, adding a contact centre solution with performance analytics, and have mobility available for all staff. Collingwood Home Hardware and Building Centre also greatly emphasized that their team wanted to leverage industry-leading Unified Communications (UC) tools and add cost-effective SIP trunking.
High Tech Customized Their Communications Solution
Collingwood Home Hardware and Building Centre eventually chose a turn-key deployment of the award-winning Mitel Connect UCaaS (Unified Communications) solution, as designed by High Tech Communications.
