OfficeWatch Chosen to Compliment Fonality Phone System

Reduced Telecom Costs and Improved Reporting for Government

Fort Lauderdale , Florida (Jan 16, 2013) Metropolis Technologies, Inc., a premier telemanagement solution provider, is pleased to announce that OfficeWatch Telemanagement was chosen by Williamsburg County Government in South Carolina to provide call tracking and reporting to compliment their Fonality PBX system.

Ricoh Group, a company synonymous with quality products and services that improve the interaction between people and data, operates in more than 200 countries and regions, including Williamsburg County, SC. During a large IT project with their existing customer with Williamsburg County Government, Matt Kendzierski, IT Services District Manager at Ricoh Americas, discovered the customer needed to reduce his telecom expenses and gain additional visibility into their voice network.

“They wanted the ability to do call tracking and 911 alerts, toll charges, international blocks and some more advanced features. Long term, the county was hoping to charge back different departments for phone usage,” explained Kendzierski, who suggested a Fonality VoIP System to reduce their long distance call charges. To further satisfy their customer’s needs, Casey Green, South East Channel Manager with Fonality, recommended Metropolis’ OfficeWatch Telemanagement.

OfficeWatch Telemanagement tracks all inbound, outbound, and internal calls and provides users with a dashboard view of their voice network. In addition to its 911 alerting and toll fraud alarm tools, OfficeWatch includes over 200 reporting templates and customizable report options.

They needed to assign account codes and track calls that way, then have [reports] emailed on a consistent basis. Fonality does have manual reporting you can pull out, however the Metropolis solution has more canned reporting, and automates the process.”

Kevin Blalock, Senior Engineer with Ricoh handled the customer’s installation and worked closely with them to ensure the system was configured properly and assist them in training. “The software was very easy to support, and getting assistance from Metropolis was very simple.”

“For larger organizations, [OfficeWatch] offers a lot of benefits… It is a great way to capture the sale by differentiating our product from others out there.”
