Intermedia SIP Trunks Saved Rainier Title 60% on their Monthly Phone Bill
Company Profile: Rainier Title is a locally owned and operated real property title and escrow company doing business throughout King, Snohomish, and Pierce counties.
Industry: Title and escrow services
Headquarters: Seattle, WA
Intermedia’s customer since: 2015
The Background: Intermedia partner Efficient Communication Solutions, Inc. (ECS) was presented with a unique challenge. Its client, Rainier Title, a 30-year strong title & escrow company, was looking to further grow the business, but management of numerous of voice carriers and UC systems had become a nightmare, and was holding them back.
Spread across 11 offices and 10 geographic locations, the customer knew it had to get things centralized quickly if it was going to continue scaling operations.
The Challenge: When Rainier Title turned to ECS, some of its offices had analog lines and others had digital Primary Rate Interfaces (PRIs). A few locations had DID functionality while most didn’t. Each office required a gateway for dial tone services, resulting in a multitude of hardware configuration and management complexities.
Further, this expensive hodgepodge of voice systems lacked the centralized administration, scalability, and feature consistency that ECS’ client so desperately needed.
Rainier Title wanted an internet-based phone system from a single carrier with a proven track record that would simplify management, reduce costs, and deliver a unified experience for their employees…all without introducing business disruption.
The Solution: ECS presented Rainier Title with the solution – Intermedia’s SIP Trunking services supporting the Avaya IP Office Platform. Intermedia SIP Trunking services have been compliance-tested through Avaya DevConnect program for interoperability with the Avaya IP Office 9.1+ Platform.
The Intermedia solution met each item on Rainier’s wish list and then some. ECS conducted the migration by tackling one office location at a time.
The recommended Intermedia / Avaya voice solution allowed the customer to:
♦ achieve centralized system administration and dialtone
♦ remove analog gateways required for local service
♦ control outbound Caller ID, enabling employees to take their DIDs when moving offices without impacting their residential customer base
♦ give all employees access to the same service features
Since implementing Intermedia’s SIP Trunking, we’ve been able to more easily scale our operations. Not only have we grown our overall headcount, we’ve also opened two new offices.
