CallTower, Inc. today introduced its new CallTower Teleconnect program, a service that provides qualified non-profit organizations with advanced new hosted IP Communications telephony and data services at a fraction of the cost. CallTower’s Teleconnect program was created to meet the needs of qualified non-profit organizations that are looking to update their current infrastructure with advanced new hosted telecom and data solutions. The program is based on the California Teleconnect Fund.
CallTower’s Teleconnect program was created to meet the needs of qualified non-profit organizations that are looking to update their current infrastructure with advanced new hosted telecom and data solutions. The new CallTower Teleconnect program is based on the California Teleconnect Fund that is available for not for profit (NFP) organizations, and provides these qualified organizations a steep discount on select telecommunications services offered by CallTower.
CallTower will now provide qualified non-profit groups with affordable, hosted, advanced IP-based voice and data services that in the past were only available to Global 250-type companies. These services and applications include: hosted voice, data and network services, all Internet, email and fax messaging, calling plans, network administration, single-wire connectivity, call center functions, disaster-proof access to all data and voicemail, and 24/7 customer support.
Providing Non Profit Organizations With Advanced Technology and Features
As telecommunications and messaging costs-per-employee are rising, most not-for-profit organizations are experiencing challenges in how they efficiently manage the growing IT infrastructure demands of email, voicemail, fax and other client support services, as well as the capital expense to deliver these new technology solutions.
The CallTower Teleconnect Service is part of a complete, secure, scalable, end-to-end voice and data suite that provides phone and data services and connectivity to desktops, multiple offices, mobile devices and the call center phone.
CallTower transforms an organization’s communications processes into a competitive advantage that allows these groups to be more successful in today's marketplace. CallTower provides solutions to solve support and organizational challenges that previously required additional human resources. CallTower allows non-profit workers to communicate with, support, and service their donors, stakeholders and constituents better.
About the California Teleconnect Fund
In 1996, when the California Teleconnect Fund (CTF) was first established, it placed California ahead of the nation in developing a program that provided support to institutions and organizations that sought to extend the promise of digital technologies to its residents. However, in many respects the need for assuring access and use of digital opportunities is more acute today than when CTF was established.
A recent ruling by the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) expanded the California Teleconnect Fund (CTF) to provide a 50 percent discount on telecommunications services from selected vendors. The new program will create new opportunities for community-based organizations to offer affordable access to technology, training and other resources to individuals in low income communities.
As a result, the Teleconnect Fund makes new advanced telecommunications services affordable for schools, libraries, public hospitals, and not-for-profit community based organizations (CBOs). Interested non-profit organizations can find out more information and obtain an application at http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/static/telco/public+programs/ctf_faq.htm
