SAPP is a mobile medical service that covers the entire area of Canelones, Uruguay. With 15 clinics scattered throughout this territory, and many ambulances, their need for communication is critical.
SAPP’s constant efforts to improve the quality of the service they provide has driven them to undertake the process of obtaining ISO 9001 certification. As a result, they decided to trust Giuffra’s experience and expertise to restructure their entire communication system.

The new system allows more control within the company and better telephone attention to the clients.
Since SAPP provides medical assistance, it is very important to maintain control of the call recordings; with the new system all of the customer’s needs are met.
The company has a large load of administrative work; they receive many faxes from different companies that are rerouted to different departments within SAPP. To have them electronically handled in specific virtual fax boxes has reduced enormously the time required previously for correct distribution of faxes, not to mention the savings in paper.
With the previous system, in order to communicate with the administrative department (Salinas Office), clients needed to call a specific telephone number. Now, the calls can be routed from the IVR of the main office through a VPN (Virtual Private Network).
Another big improvement is the new dialing rules, which enable staff to communicate between offices through the intra-company trunks.
One of the most important improvements introduced in the new system is the integration with remote offices. As a result, consultations with specialists, pharmacy stock availability checks, and various other tasks are performed much more efficiently, saving time and money.
As per Ignacio Aguerre, Marketing Manager, SAPP:
“When this project started, the goal was to improve telephony communications (mainly to centralized them and reduce their costs) and to reuse the Internet connections we already had in our company.”
“In this first stage of implementation our company is greatly satisfied with the behavior of the new telephony system, Xorcom’s PBXs and the great number of extensions installed.”
“Being able to record all calls has been a great improvement for us. Now we can use these recordings for quality control and as legal evidence, if necessary.”
“Our company’s internal communication has benefited greatly from the new technology, not only in the cost savings, but also in the smart reuse of the existing resources, such as data connections and PSTN lines. Before, in order to communicate between extensions of different branch offices, two PSTN lines were utilized, now all the inter-branch call traffic goes through Internet and no lines are occupied!”
