What Hurricane Ike Destroyed, YES Prep Restored With Unified Communications
YES Prep Public Schools in Houston, Texas, was a great success story in the education of inner-city youth - and then Hurricane Ike levelled the district's schools and offices in a day. To rebuild the phone system, the district relied on Microsoft Unified Communications. It was the fastest, cheapest way to restore voice capabilities, and add presence and video conferencing. Costs plunged 92 percent and curriculum quality is enhanced.
