VoIP Vendor Chosen May 10, 2017

On May 10 the District announced a winner of the VoIP RFP: Alliance Digital Networks of Bangor.

We chose ADN primarily because of long term cost. But a number of other factors were influential including the tight integration with Google contacts, the existence of both a Windows and Mac desktop client, the consistently large number of participants in a voice conference, the existence of an API and the very high regard customers have for the folks at ADN.
