ShoreTel Delivers Lowest TCO for IP Telephony and UC Deployments
When it comes to unified communications (UC), the true value may be immeasurable, since it improves employee collaboration and communication. However, organizations may find roadblocks when it comes to implementing or upgrading UC systems, since cost can be a barrier. To make matters even more complex, purchases for communication systems often need to be supported and justified by their potential return on investment, or ROI.
That’s why ShoreTel has worked hard to provide the lowest TCO for our phone systems. And it turns out this effort has paid off. ShoreTel provides the lowest first-year and five-year costs for for IP telephony and on-premises Unified Communications, compared to eight major competitors, according to a new report by Nemertes.
ShoreTel’s first-year costs for IP Telephony across all size rollouts are $566 compared to a median of $717 across all vendors. Plus, we have the lowest first-year operational costs for all size rollouts, as well as the lowest five-year TCO for 200, 1,500 and 10,000 endpoints. When it comes to on-premises UC deployments, ShoreTel has the lowest operational and implementation costs.
At ShoreTel, we believe that the value of an effective phone system is far greater than the actual costs. Still, we don’t believe price should be an obstacle in achieving these benefits. We’ve created phone systems that are both a great value and add significant value to an organization’s communications.
