Let's talk

Museum of London selects Charterhouse Voice & Data to deliver telephony support that provides resilience and cost savings.

Charterhouse Voice & Data (CVD) deliver telephony support to the Museum of London. By engaging with CVD, the Museum of London have saved around £30,000 each year on their telephony costs. They also benefit from a stable, resilient telephony solution that offers the latest features and functionality.

The Challenges

Prior to engaging with Charterhouse Voice & Data (CVD), the Museum of London had undergone a project to upgrade their telephony to a modern VoIP solution. However, their incumbent provider – despite being a prominent industry name – were not providing adequate
levels of support.

 

The Museum of London’s telephony systems were not benefiting from regular software updates. In addition, the incumbent provider was acquired by a larger firm. This resulted in the Museum of London being passed between several Account Managers. There was a feeling that, as a medium-sized not-for-profit organisation, the Museum of London were not a high
priority for the provider.

CVD took a highly consultative approach when designing and deploying our telephony system. They were diligent in ensuring that our telephony was fit for purpose, and met our expectations. CVD also trained our in house team, which helps us to help ourselves when we need to make simple changes to the telephony system
