With an aging Nortel communications infrastructure that was reaching end of life, Benenden School needed a replacement system and a platform that would enable them to develop and improve the way they communicate and collaborate with parents and students.
After comprehensively reviewing the options available to them, Benenden School decided upon Microsoft Lync as the solution and Modality Systems as their partner to realise their goal of a highly resilient and integrated communications infrastructure.
The project cost over 40% less than the other more traditional options being reviewed and was deployed following a phased migration approach, ensuring a seamless transition from the old system to the new to minimise disruption to the operations.
Benenden School were quick to recognise the greater potential of Lync and also commissioned Modality Systems to custom develop an application to integrate their iSAM student database with Lync, thereby enhancing the communication process, service levels and general efficiency of parent interactions.
