Ashgoal rollout another successful cloud phone system
Ashgoal are pleased to announce another successful cloud phone system installation, this time for Bedfordshire based charity ASC.
Alcohol Services for the community (asc) is an independent charitable agency specialising in alcohol use who have been running for nearly 30 years and have projects and services across Bedfordshire and Luton. Ashgoal provide an array of services to asc including a cloud hosted server and all of their communications infrastructure, from telephone lines, broadband and a cloud hosted telephone system. Prior to migrating their telephone system to the Ashgoal Cloud, asc were using an aging and expensive phone system from BT. Once the BT contract had expired, asc began saving around £600 per month on their communications costs.
They commented that 'We were pleased with the cost savings the actual phone system provides, but even happier when the call costs were reduced so much.'
