The ubiquitous telephone has become a more important tool for Bridgestone/Firestone South Carolina than what the world's largest tire manufacturing company ever envisioned. Bridgestone/Firestone is using Polycom SpectraLink 6000 Wireless Telephone System for instant voice communications among its workforce. The company has also benefited from using messaging applications through utilizing the Open Application Interface (OAI). Bridgestone/Firestone has customized applications to connect voice with data applications, accessible via the SpectraLink Wireless Telephones. The result for Bridgestone/Firestone is a telephone system that gives employees direct voice communication and alerts managers on their SpectraLink Wireless Telephones of critical situations in the plant's production network.
