Reliable communications are absolutely essential for schools, as they must deal with complex administrative issues and parent and student relations on a daily basis, as well as being prepared to protect students in the event of an emergency. Star2Star guarantees 99.999% uptime reliability and helps to ensure this guarantee is kept with features like continuous monitoring.

Star2Star offers numerous advanced features that can dramatically improve school operations no matter the situation. Cloud-based auto-attendants can free up administrative staff for more pressing concerns. Mobile Softphone (iOS and Android) allows staff to receive and send calls from their personal cell phone, but with the school's Caller ID, allowing them to take and make important calls without giving away their personal number. Standard voice conferencing and video conferencing advance education goals through collaboration. Our flexible solution allows you to connect with your staff and students anytime, anywhere.
Many schools are on an extremely tight budget and must constantly be on the lookout for ways to save. Star2Star can help reduce communications costs in many ways. Our line pooling feature allows multiple locations to share the same pool of phone lines, a particularly useful feature for school districts. Our hardware uses fewer resources, which helps schools meet green initiatives and save on power expenses. We also offer hardware leasing options that reduce the upfront costs of making the switch. Star2Star is eligible for the E-Rate program, making it easier and more affordable for your school to make the switch!
