ALTURA AND METROPOLIS TEAM UP TO INCREASE EMERGENCY RESPONSE FOR Avaya PBX
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – November 5, 2009-- Metropolis, a leading provider of telemanagement solutions, and Altura Communication Solutions, one of Avaya’s largest reseller partners, are pleased to announce that they have been selected by the state of Pennsylvania to provide Metropolis’ OfficeWatch for Business.
OfficeWatch's call reporting and telemanagement system was deployed as part of Pennsylvania's safety and security protocol. OfficeWatch provides the ability to track and report on incoming and outgoing call activity within the prison. This capability alone was seen as a vital tool in maintaining a safe environment, mitigating risk, and providing effective emergency response and instant 911 alerts.
“Because of the features and capabilities of OfficeWatch, not only do the prisons adhere to state laws and regulations, they also have an advanced toolset to properly manage their phone system, reduce billing, and more effectively monitor their staff and inmate population,” says Michael Cappiello, Account Manager for Altura Communications Solutions. OfficeWatch is currently being utilized at four correctional institutions throughout the state of Pennsylvania, including Pittsburgh, Dallas, Bellefonte and Cambridge Springs.
