J-W Energy Discovers ShoreTel for Lower TCO
J-W Energy Company is a U.S. based corporation that provides energy exploration, development, and services. Founded in 1960 by a petroleum engineer and a geologist in Midwestern America, J-W Energy is headquartered in Addison, Texas, and employs 1,700 employees across nearly two-dozen states and 100 offices.
For years J-W Energy Company had been using a VoIP hybrid architecture and phone systems to provide traditional and Voice over IP (VoIP) services. When their needs outgrew the capability of their current hardware solution, J-W Energy Company explored new IP telephony solutions. The incoming VoIP system would have to integrate with J-W Energy’s highly virtualized IT environment. While solutions from other recognized providers had viable attributes, only ShoreTel offered an opportunity to reduce the total cost of ownership and simplify business communications.
J-W Energy Company selected a ShoreTel Unified Communications Solution including hundreds of ShoreTel IP Phones and licenses, ShoreTel Voice Switches, and ShoreTel Communicator with Professional and Mobile Access. They have become ShoreTel fans and benefits have included:
- 75% reduction of physical telephone lines
- Fast, easy installs
- SIP trunking for transparent VoIP connectivity and cost savings
- Certified VMware Ready partner
- Pervasive anywhere, anytime communications
“ShoreTel provides impressive versatility with an all-in-one solution. We gained a flexible system, a rich feature set, and extensive cost efficiencies.”
