Exploring the possibility of replacing existing, unconnected telephone system throughout the Business West offices
Business West is exploring the possibility of replacing a number of existing, unconnected telephone systems that are currently in use throughout our offices.
Technology developments, coupled with a desire to work more flexibly and cost-efficiently provide ‘drivers’ to explore ways in which we can embrace changes in the world of communications. We wish to explore the feasibility and costs of implementing a single telephony solution, building on the network infrastructure and connectivity already in place where possible. The solution needs to be flexible enough to cater for changes in our property portfolio, scaled to 300 users but expandable to 500 users and beyond. We are interested in both ‘purchase’ and ‘rental’ options.
We initially request information from suppliers outlining their proposed solution. Details of what we now wish to procure can be found in the Invitation to Tender (ITT) Appendix 2.
For full details of the tender please contact Stefan Osipiuk - email@example.com
