Company Background

Dragados is one of the leading construction brands within the ACS Group. ACS Group is the world´s most internationalized construction and engineering organization, according to the ranking elaborated by the Engineering News-Record magazine; it operates in 68 countries and has been highlighted by the Public Works Financing magazine as the world-leading infrastructure developer group. In North America, Dragados has been ranked number 6 on the 2017 ENR Top Transportation Contractors and number 7 on the 2017 ENR Top 50 Domestic Heavy Contractors.
Dragados is the culmination of a strong entrepreneurial spirit, created over more than 70 years of activity in which thousands of people have joined efforts to shape one of the largest and most influential companies in the construction industry worldwide. It specializes in studying, designing and executing every kind of civil infrastructure or construction, paying particular attention to those projects that are unique in their technical complexity, construction process, scale or degree of specialization.

The Challenge:

Dragados requested assistance in converting their world-wide offices to Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) from their tradition phone system. They were interested in reducing the operational costs of its telecommunications infrastructure while increasing companywide communications. Dragados selected Smart Choice’s solution due to its powerful features, which provide a professional communication method for their branches. The platform connects the offices via Internet Protocol (IP), thus allowing for highly flexible communication between sites, while keeping costs down. Prior to Smart Choice, Dragados used an analog PBX system that was managed by its IT team and multiple telecommunication providers. This PBX became much too difficult and expensive to maintain.

“Our business is dispersed throughout the entire United States and instead of reaching out to someone in Texas or North Carolina we just need to reach out to one vendor, Smart Choice.”
