FMWC ‘s Growth Limited By An Outdated Phone System
Originally working off of Magic Jack, FMWC faced many challenges with regards to poor call quality, lack of mobility for their employees, and limited telecommunications features to empower their organization. FMWC desperately needed a new phone system to grow with and advanced features to support and streamline the workload of each staff member while increasing productivity. They want to spend more time managing programs than answering the phones, forwarding calls, etc. Now, FMWC leverages UniVoIP’s cloud-based phone system, ensuring that calls are handled and routed to optimize in and out of the office staff efficiency and responsiveness.
UniVoIP Increases FMWC’s Productivity and Efficiency
After implementing UniVoIP’s feature-rich telecommunications system, FMWC quickly began realizing increased productivity within their organization. UniVoIP has provided FMWC with a much more flexible communications channel, that promotes mobility, guaranteed privacy with voice encryption, and quality calls that no longer drop midconversation; ensuring that calls from donors no longer get a fast busy signal.
