New Telecommunications Vendor
Mason’s current telephone system is end-of-life, and with a workforce increasingly dispersed, a new solution is needed. Mason has selected a new telecommunications vendor, Vonage, Inc, which delivers advanced features (e.g., mobile applications, ring/accept calls on any device, presence awareness) and integrates into Mason’s tools (e.g., Office 365). For updates on this initiative and additional resources, see Telecom System Replacement Roadmap.
