I wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how please I am with our maintenance and service agreement. As a small non-profit agency, effective budgeting is of the utmost importance. Having stable, predictable costs is very helpful in achieving this. As you are aware our antiquated voicemail system recently became unserviceable. Fortunately for us, replacement of the system was covered under our contract with American Business Phones.

This saved us approximately $2,400.

"I have always had good customer service with your representatives on the phone and with your technicians here at our facility. One of your technicians, Harlan, was very professional and courteous. He came, assessed the situation and effected repair quickly."

    Unified Communications
    Challenging times require creative solutions. Toshiba’s Unified Communications help you respond with solutions such as presence, instant messaging, mobile unified messaging, CRM integration, mobility applications, and more.

    What can “unified communications” mean to your business?
    To most organizations, unified communications means integrating business applications with people communications for a more effective business. It sounds great in theory, but it’s only meaningful if it provides tangible benefits, such as increasing productivity, improving customer service, generating sales, reducing costs, and increasing profits.

    How can Toshiba’s Unified Communications help?
    Most businesses already use office telephones, cell phones, voice mail, email, video conferencing, instant messaging, etc. In a non-unified approach, these various forms of communication work independently — and inefficiently. Toshiba’s Unified Communications Suite includes the structure and intelligence to enable these various forms of communication to work together, so information reaches recipients quicker and through the most appropriate medium.
    Reliable long range communications by ENGENIUS, indoor and outdoor, throughout your premises, even if you require rugged handsets for use in harsh environments.  Answer multiple lines remotely.  Independent broadcast function allows secure wireless intercom between handsets.  Call for details.
