PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - Nov 13, 2012) - Whaleback Managed Services, the leader in managed unified communications services, today announced that American Vascular Access, provider of outpatient vascular care in eight locations throughout the United States, has improved its business communications efficiency and costs using Whaleback's CrystalBlue Conferencing.
American Vascular often holds two to three conference calls a day to communicate with close to 100 doctors across the country and conduct ongoing business development. With medical details being shared and business deals closing, it was important that the company have clear, high quality communications in place to avoid misunderstandings that could cost millions of dollars. American Vascular was finding it frustrating to do group calls, with staff huddled around a phone with a single speaker and not hearing properly.
When American Vascular decided to renew its four year contract for Whaleback CrystalBlue Cloud-based Managed Unified Communications Services and add CrystalBlue Conferencing, it made a world of difference.
"We always had great service with Whaleback, and decided we needed to update capabilities for our growing business needs," said Tatiana L. Carter, Administrator. "Now with CrystalBlue Conferencing we can have more meetings with our directors because the sound quality is much better and our capabilities are so much more accommodating. We save money every month by communicating with as many people as possible, eliminating flights and saving on travel expenses."
"We love that call attendees can be anywhere in the room and not so close to the phone, calls can be recorded, and that employees can schedule conference calls online through Whaleback's OrcaMeeting.com with dial in numbers emailed to participants," said Carter. "And we plan to add monitors to use CrystalBlue's web conferencing capabilities for face to face meetings with desktop views with directors at our various facilities."
"We never have to worry about service going down and technicians coming into the office," continued Carter. "Whaleback will let us know there was a problem and that they fixed it before we knew there was an issue."
