Admiral Beverage Selects MegaPath Hosted Voice and Unified Communications

Large Pepsi Distributor Estimates $50,000 in Savings Once its 22-site MegaPath UC rollout is Complete

Pleasanton, Calif. – July 28, 2015MegaPath, a leading provider of voice, data, security and cloud services in North America, today announced that Admiral Beverage has selected MegaPath’s Hosted Voice and Unified Communications (UC) solution. When implementation is complete, Admiral will operate 290 Hosted Voice and UC seats in 22 locations across the United States, including more than 120 seats at its corporate headquarters. Through its relationship with MegaPath and its partner, 2Evolve Technologies, Admiral Beverage estimates it will save up to $50,000 per year in telecom expenses, while ensuring its customers can reach its distribution sites via a dependable, easy-to-use communications solution.

“Prior to MegaPath, our failing PBX caused phone and voicemail outages that prevented customers from placing orders,” said Jim Hill, Director of Information Technology, Admiral Beverage. “MegaPath’s Voice and UC solution gives us advanced features we didn’t have with our old system. Voicemails are now transcribed and sent via email so employees in the field can instantly scan messages and ensure orders are fulfilled correctly. Our employees also love that they can make or take calls using their Business VoIP number on virtually any device. MegaPath’s solution not only improves how we communicate, but it will save us as much as $50,000 per year.”

After leveraging an older, unstable PBX solution, Admiral Beverage’s team sought a reliable voice service that enabled its national workforce and customers to communicate with one another easily, while also controlling costs. The search led the company to 2Evolve Technologies and, in turn, MegaPath and its Hosted Voice and Unified Communications offering. The MegaPath solution gives Admiral Beverage’s team access to more than 50 calling and mobility features that help them maximize productivity and focus on serving its customers. With MegaPath’s UC service, staff across nine states can choose how they communicate, relying on real-time collaboration tools including Instant Messaging, Texting, Video Conferencing, Screen Sharing and Softphone capabilities—all within in a single application available on desktop and mobile devices.

“Today’s businesses requires solutions that enable employees to easily and instantly connect and collaborate in a variety of ways, regardless of their location or device,” said Kurt Hoffman, President, MegaPath. “At MegaPath, we understand the needs of distributed businesses, like Admiral Beverage, and we work with 2Evolve and other partners to ensure that we not only deliver quality, feature-rich IP communications services, but that we foster a long-term, trusted partnership with our customers.”

Admiral Beverage’s costs savings are attributed to a reduction in local and long distance charges, limited on-site equipment and installation, as well as free calls within the network.
