Despite the fact that government budgets continue to shrink, constituents continue to demand more efficient communications services, challenging agencies to modernize while doing more with less.

Less resources, less infrastructure, less training and maintenance lead to lower costs. 'Brilliant Simplicity' over unnecessary complexity is why so many government agencies across the country continue to make the move to ShoreTel.”
ShoreTel is committed to helping state and local governments deliver new communications solutions that align with local challenges, help to build more interactive relationships with citizens and business owners, and bring additional government resources to communities, towns, cities, and counties.
“We’ve had the ShoreTel platform for almost two years. Move-Add-Changes are completed in minutes without a trip to the wiring closet or having 'the phone guy' make a trip desk side. Everyone from the IT staff to the agents on the queue lines already agree that ShoreTel was the right choice for us.”
