CASE STUDY – KINGS MONKTON SCHOOL
CENTRAL PHONE SYSTEM WITH REMOTE ACCESS
An independent school located in Cardiff pride themselves on further developing their staff and pupils whilst providing an exceptional learning environment.
- The school telephone system had become outdated, and no longer met professional requirements – largely due to limitations in the available features.
- The establishment recognised issues with older technology, particularly when handling incoming calls. The current setup consisted of just one phone and answer system in place. As a result, an increasing amount of time was dedicated to managing voicemail messages and passing onto the appropriate contact. To improve efficiency, staff required dedicated extensions and voicemails.
- To further enhance communication with parents, remote access was essential to update the phone system with announcements such as an emergency closure.
- Finally, the school required modern, future-proof communications to improve daily operations with the much-needed assurance that its telecom services were being properly maintained.
