Success Story: Pace International
“With Hosted Voice, we'll save thousands a year in long distance, and since the service is hosted, we'll eliminate all the headaches associated with maintaining phone system hardware in-house.”
– Jon Wells, Director of IT, Pace International
Seattle-based Pace International develops and markets products used to help protect and preserve fruit and vegetable quality post-harvest, when crops are making their ways to markets around the world. With corporate headquarters in Seattle, the company needed a more cost-effective and efficient way to maintain contact with its 100 employees, spread across two plants in Washington and California, as well as 11 warehouses around the US, and eight international offices.
With Hosted Voice, a simple Web tool makes the administration of password management and moves/adds/changes fast and easy.
Pace saves 10 to 20 percent of IT time per month by not having to maintain the old phone system. Simple tasks like changing extensions and passwords that used to take half an hour, now take less than five minutes.
With an affordable calling plan from MegaPath, Pace can make unlimited daily conference calls among corporate headquarters, plants and warehouses.
Pace estimates it will save $65,000 a year in long distance costs, conference calling, and phone system connectivity costs, for a total savings of at least 25 percent in communication-related costs.
"When you combine all these benefits, switching to VoIP rapidly becomes a no-brainer."
–Jon Wells, Director of IT, Pace International
