Let’s face it: Moving is hard. Often, the most difficult part isn’t the actual heavy lifting, but deciding what gets left behind. The Brickman Group, a landscape services company responsible for servicing over 30,000 properties across the U.S., recently found itself in this exact situation. The company was moving its corporate offices to a new location, but wasn’t sure whether it should leave its legacy phone system behind.
After some careful consideration, company leaders came to the conclusion that it was time for a much-needed upgrade; however, they were concerned about the cost of replacing their aging phone system. Brickman managers turned to McEnroe Voice and Data, a Star2Star partner, for help. They were happy to be informed that replacing their existing phone system wouldn’t break the bank. In fact, it would be considerably more cost-effective than moving the old system.
Following the installation of Star2Star’s cloud communications solution, Brickman quickly realized benefits above and beyond those that its previous phone system had delivered. “We found that the monthly recurring costs and operating expenses with Star2Star were much lower than [with] anyone else. It’s a huge jump from where we were. As far as functionality and voice quality, it’s far better,” said Chad Maran, the facilities move coordinator for Brickman.
With Star2Star’s superior Scalable Cloud Communications solution, which is more than a typical business VoIP system, the company now has access to many new features and services, such as presence management, business fax capabilities and disaster recovery protections. In fact, Brickman was so impressed with Star2Star that when a second office had to change locations, the company left its phone system behind and switched to Star2Star as well.
