At a Glance

The Town of Penetanguishene needed to modernize their corporate communications. Their older phone system wasn’t meeting the needs of residents or their staff. After an internal audit, The Town established three main objectives for the upgrade; provide better customer service for the citizens of Penetanguishene; Integrate, secure and centralize their

communications; and create resiliency and redundancy with a state-of-the-art platform. The Town-issued RFP greatly emphasized that their team wanted to leverage industry-leading Unified Communications (UC) tools and add cost-effective SIP trunking.
