Palm Beach IT Mtg, 10 Jul 12

During this evening's meeting of the Palm Beach IT group, Dave Simpson of Windstream presented Windstream's new offering, Allworx Systems.  Our colleague, Bret Bennet has summarized most of the presentation much more eloquently than I can:

"CPE Specialist David Simpson and Lynne gave a great presentation. Windstream now has a new “IP Simple” all-in-one VOIP/DATA/HARDWARE/TECHsupport bundle based on their own “Allworx” hardware platform. Given that Windstream owns Allworx, they can get very competitive with their bundles. From their site:

“ Windstream's IP Simple Solution provides network service and a state-of-the-art IP Phone System in an all-in-one communication powerhouse integrating feature-rich phone systems, advanced IP phones and powerful software features that can substantially improve your company's productivity and cost-savings. “

A few photo's and screen shots of the presentation (Click Here) will give you more technical and contact information.
