Port Townsend relied on a phone system procured through an existing state telecommunications contract. However, the provider didn’t deliver on key service areas, and Port Townsend ran into several challenges, including the system’s heavy expense, lack of features, and the complexity involved in making routine changes to the system. Jive helped bring the city’s phone service into modern times. The city was impressed with Jive’s intuitive online user portal, simple plug-and-play phone setup, and easy system management. Rather than struggling with unresponsive reports and sparse phone features, the city now enjoys a modern telecommunications system.
