PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY SELECTS OFFICEWATCH Call Accounting
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – May 26, 2010-- Metropolis a leading provider of telemanagement solutions for colleges and universities, is pleased to announce that their award-winning OfficeWatch system has been selected for use at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. Pepperdine chose OfficeWatch due to its ability to maintain records of all inter-departmental phone calls both for liability and cost allocation purposes. Additionally, OfficeWatch’s “Triple-Alert” 911 system was of particular interest to the university in order to be alerted of emergency calls in real-time via the resident server, email and SMS text message. This feature is particularly important for campus settings in order to increase response time and decrease liability.
Pepperdine University is an independent, medium-sized university enrolling approximately 7,700 students in five colleges and schools. The University was founded in 1937 by George Pepperdine, a Christian businessman who founded the Western Auto Supply Company. During Pepperdine’s first 30 years in existence, the institution was a small, mostly undergraduate college. University status was achieved in 1970 as the institution added graduate and professional schools. In 1972, the University opened its new campus in Malibu.
Metropolis has been a provider of telemanagement solutions for school districts, colleges and universities since 1993, with several thousand installations throughout the United States and North America.
