Media Company Expects Lower Phone Costs, Less Travel With Communications Solution
BBC Worldwide, a division of the British Broadcasting Corporation, produces and sells television programs and other media products. Employees often communicate between company locations but previously lacked sufficient collaboration tools to avoid costly long-distance phone charges and frequent travel. With help from POSTcti, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, BBC Worldwide deployed Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and Plantronics USB headsets. With software-powered voice over IP, BBC Worldwide could avoid long-distance phone charges, saving more than U.S.$33,000 annually. The solution's conferencing tools can cut additional costs by reducing travel. In addition, the headsets - which are Optimized for Microsoft Office Communicator - make collaboration more productive by providing high-quality audio and ease multitasking by leaving users' hands free.
