ShoreTel Webinar Shows the Importance of TCO When Considering IP Telephony Purchases

A key consideration for IT decision-makers when purchasing an IP Telephony and unified communications solution is the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

In a new ShoreTel Webinar, “How to Evaluate Total Cost of Ownership for IP Telephony Deployments,” we drill down on the TCO, which goes beyond unit costs as the primary metric of consideration, to include initial implementation, recurring cost, bundled feature set, and system performance.

The free Webinar features an Aberdeen Group survey of real-world TCO experienced by 485 users of IP telephony and legacy Time Division Multiplexing telephony.  Andrew Borg, Aberdeen’s research director for enterprise mobility and collaboration, outlines the survey’s results, which show that users of ShoreTel solutions experienced the lowest TCO.

Also featured in the Webinar are first-hand reports from Jonathan Schiller, CIO of Minnwest Bank and Glenn Rogers, CIO of Girls Scouts of Northern California, both of whom explain how TCO considerations helped persuade them to choose ShoreTel solutions.

The Webinar also includes a review of ShoreTel IP telephony and UC capabilities, as well as a lively Q&A session. Check it out.

The Aberdeen survey showed users of ShoreTel solutions had reduced costs in every category.
