Solar's Challenge

Interact is an ever-growing intranet business with an impressive list of clients. The team wanted to start from scratch with a brand new telephone system. It needed to facilitate flexible, agile and dynamic communications between both of their offices, one in Manchester and New York.

It was imperative that the system supported their professional and enthusiastic approach to customer service but also enabled great collaborative working between both offices.

They chose to work with Solar because their approach to development, delivery and aftercare and choice of great solutions.

The Solution

Solar worked with Interact to establish the best solution for the team’s business needs. They decided on the hugely popular Mitel Connect. Not just a telephone system; it is an advanced collaboration tool including:

  • Instant messaging, audio and web conferencing allowing easy internal design and planning meetings between team members in different locations and hassle-free customer meetings.
  • Point-to-point video and desktop sharing allows secure, instant collaboration and editing.
  • Seamless feature integration and collaboration apps for smartphone, tablet and wearable devices making work more flexible, agile and dynamic to suit the creative environment.
  • Robust customer engagement allowing the Interact team to access and make calls on multiple devices from any location.

Return On Investment

The solution has offered a great deal of benefits to the business, from general efficiency to far more flexible, remote working. The service desk is now 24/7 and the whole system is integrated into the business CRM, which is excellent for customer discovery and enhances and optimises the value of the software.

The cost of the system is based entirely on how it’s deployed, making it great to flex up and down. Meetings can be advanced from message, to call, to video conference with ease, dependent on participant requirements. All the team can communicate with each other in the way that best suits them. It is also designed to maximise uptime and ensure business continuity.

Why Solar?

It’s great working with Solar. It was a smooth transition moving over to the system. The functionality has made a massive difference to how we operate and it was really easy and affordable getting the correct system in place. It was exactly what we needed to move forward and service our customers in the way that matched our values.”
