New Phone System Installed

Press Release – (Cherryville, North Carolina, May 25, 2007)-FleetNet America has just installed a new Cisco voice-over-IP telephone system and contact center software. This system introduces features such as enhanced reporting and skills-based routing allowing us to route calls more efficiently while retaining the personal call touch that our customers have been accustomed to. This product will give FleetNet America, Inc the ability to handle more calls while retaining a high quality-of-service. 

VoIP refers to a way to carry phone calls over an IP data network, whether on the Internet or an internal network. Most businesses are using IP telephony across their own managed private networks because it allows them to better handle security and service quality. Using our own network, FleetNet America, Inc has more control in ensuring that voice quality is as good as, if not better than, the services we have previously experienced with a traditional phone system. It’s the potential for deploying new business applications that transform communications and build competitive advantage.
