Unified Communications (UC) Replaces Legacy Phone Technology for Patriot Equities

June 23, 2014 / Evolve IP

Growing commercial real estate firm reduces monthly communications costs by approximately 50% plus gains new functionality

Evolve IP™, The Cloud Services Company™, today announced that growing commercial real estate firm, Patriot Equities, has replaced an aging office telephone system with Evolve IP’s unified communications (UC) cloud services. By moving to the cloud, Patriot Equities has increased efficiency, cut monthly costs by approximately 50%, and improved productivity with new features such as call-forwarding and unified messaging (voicemail/fax-in-email functionality). The firm also benefits from built-in disaster recovery/business continuity features so communications are not disrupted regardless of circumstances such as power outages onsite.

Patriot Equities move to the cloud was precipitated by its growing frustrations with the high costs and management hassles associated with its legacy premise phone system. The firm evaluated various solutions and quickly landed on an IP phone system from Evolve IP with its sophisticated, easy to use features. Additionally, Patriot Equities was attracted to the system’s ability to scale quickly for new users, easy user configurations with OSSmosis – a point-and-click Web portal – and the ability to eliminate managing carriers.

“Our old system was very difficult to manage – simple things like adding users were a huge hassle for a firm like ours without a large support staff on site,” said Mike Kolar, Director of Operations at Patriot Equities. “With Evolve IP, making changes is fast and easy. We recently added new users and it took less than 15 minutes. It’s easy to see why Evolve IP has been recognized by analysts as the market’s provider of best-of-breed unified communications.”

Patriot Equities’ Kolar also noted, “With an Evolve IP phone system in the cloud we can afford the same world-class solution as large enterprises without the accompanying price tag. It is dramatically reducing our costs by eliminating a huge capital expense.”

“Growing organizations like Patriot Equities really benefit from our award-winning UC solution with all of the advanced features they need to increase productivity, like call forwarding to mobile devices, without the high price point,” says Tim Allen, Chief Sales Officer for Evolve IP. “We’re very pleased to be helping Patriot Equities focus on continuing to grow their business instead of being distracted by out-of-date and inefficient infrastructure.”

One of the nation’s fastest growing cloud service companies, Evolve IP provides organizations with a unified option for cloud services with its Evolve IP OneCloudTM solution. Today, more than 50,000 users in the US and globally depend daily on Evolve IP for virtual data centers /servers, virtual desktops, unified communications, disaster recovery, contact centers, and more.
