The Challenge

The list of requirements when it involves communication needs was quite lengthy: customer service, mobility, cost control, scalability, and, of course, networking multiple franchise locations. This rundown bodes well in light of the fact that communication plays an important role in the day-to-day operations of most retail stores. DVF required a modern IP PBX system that would help the company reduce its telecommunications cost while improving productivity and customer service. With the desire for cost-effective communications, DVF management needed to move to a VoIP platform with an all-in-one solution. Using their old system, many representatives were not utilizing the features on their simple telephones. Phone calls were relatively difficult to sort out, and when they were composed, the voice quality of the conference was extremely poor. Smart Choice provided the right voice and data solutions that are helping DVF to achieve their business goals.

Smart Solution:

The Smart Choice system improved communications significantly throughout DVF and at the same time reduced the telecommunications cost. The new system allows more control within the company and better telephone attention to the customers. The solution provides a single platform for multiple applications such as:
