|Main Challenge||Link four existing PBX in the U.S. with new PBX located in Mexico to provide direct dialing across the corporation (for huge cost savings).|
“The ability to call directly has changed the way we communicate company wide. We collaborate and quickly share information across the various plants far quicker and with greater ease than before. We pick up the phone and dial three numbers to reach any Huntington Foam employee any time.” - Gary McLaughlin, President – Huntington Foam
Huntington Foam, a manufacturing firm with locations in Pennsylvania, Michigan, South Carolina, Arkansas and Mexico, has multiple PBXs linked via iax2 trunks so they can share conference bridges, line costs by least cost routing, and direct extension to extension dialing.
Unified Alerts, a certified Xorcom reseller, came in when the customer had been left a tad high and dry. Although the customer already had four Asterisk-based PBX systems that were working fine, the original supplier did not have the technical skill to activate an additional (international) circuit successfully. Xorcom and Unified Alerts worked very hard to get the fifth PBX, located in Mexico, to link with the other four PBX systems located in the United States. The result: a happy customer and direct dialing across the corporation, saving them thousands of dollars in line costs.
The major requirement was to activate an additional circuit to establish and connect a PBX at the Mexico location with the existing PBX systems located in the four US-based branches.
The additional benefit of built-in conferencing has allowed for substantially reducing call costs and more information sharing.
Gary McLaughlin, President of Huntington Foam, states:
“The ability to call directly has changed the way we communicate company wide. We collaborate and quickly share information across the various plants far quicker and with greater ease than before. We pick up the phone and dial three numbers to reach any Huntington Foam employee any time.”
“Unified Alerts has worked tirelessly to deploy VOIP across the corporation, including a site in Mexico, numerous remote personnel, and the plants, while maintaining critical business links – all while reducing cost.”
“Deploying Xorcom in multiple language locations has been a breeze. We have several Spanish and English sites running dual language systems and now a site running French and English as well. The staff has commented several times on the ease of use for the end user being in the native language.”
