SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ShoreTel® (NASDAQ: SHOR), the leading provider of brilliantly simple unified communications platforms including business phone systems, applications and mobile UC solutions, continues to provide solutions that enable construction firms to improve site-to-site employee communication, increase productivity and reduce costs.
ShoreTel's brilliantly simple solutions have been built from the ground-up to defeat complexity and instead focus on overall ease of use, freeing customers to concentrate on the work at hand while driving down the total cost of ownership.
The McGraw-Hill 2013 Construction Forecast predicts that total U.S. construction starts for 2013 will rise 6 percent to $483.7 billion, and the US Commerce Department recently reported that spending on residential housing rose in May to the highest level in 4 1/2 years. With this in mind, ShoreTel is ensuring that customers in the construction industry have the right unified communications (UC) tools to meet demand.
"Today's growing construction industry is more competitive than ever, and ShoreTel UC solutions are helping our customers keep pace, with offerings that are simple to manage, easy to deploy to multiple locations, and that result in fast return on investment," said David Petts, senior VP of worldwide sales for ShoreTel.
"Prior to implementing ShoreTel, we had 15 locations with 15 different phone systems. None of these systems worked together and calling another location was expensive because of long distance charges," said Bruce L. Fyfe, Jr., IT director at Lakeside Industries. "ShoreTel allowed us to converge all of our offices on one unified platform that utilized our existing WAN, resulting in significant cost savings. We saw a ROI on our initial hardware/deployment costs in less than two years. And the use of ShoreTel Communicator has dramatically improved employee communications."
