BATC’s legacy phone system had grown so outdated that it could no longer be maintained. BATC knew it had to decide between a major upgrade of the existing system or the implementation of a new system altogether. Jive’s intuitive system required no hands-on maintenance, a factor that helped BATC decide that upgrading to a hosted system was the way to go. The transition went smoothly and quickly with plug-and-play phones. Jive installed the new phone sets before shutting down the old system, keeping the school’s lines of communication open at all times.
