Hosted PBX Replaces Lancaster Public Library’s Outdated Phone System, While Cutting Costs by 40%

Lancaster Public Library has an excellent reputation for serving the community well and providing many valuable resources. However, its outdated and failing premise-based phone systems needed to be replaced and upgraded at all locations. Among the many challenges included:

  • The legacy systems often failed, resulting in countless hours of outages and troubleshooting across multiple carriers and providers.
  • The phone systems across the Library’s locations were not networked together.
  • The phones were past the end of their support and some carrier services were ending soon. This created a major time concern.
  • The systems were difficult to manage and upgrade due to antiquated wiring.
  • The Auto Attendant for the entire Lancaster Public Library was outdated, with a difficult-to-manage voicemail system and lack of modern features.
  • The age and structure of the buildings made new wiring costs prohibitive.
