Road Scholar Transport Taps Frontier Communications to Enhance and Streamline Communications [Professional Services Close - Up]
(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) With a fleet of more than 105 tractors, 300 trailers and 65 refrigerated units, Road Scholar Transport recently expanded its corporate headquarters in Dunmore, Pennsylvania and selected Frontier Communications to enhance and streamline communications among its headquarters and satellite locations in Philadelphia, Mechanicsburg and Denver, Pa.; Carlstadt, N.J.; and Leominster, Mass.
According to a release, Frontier's sales and engineering teams designed a telecommunications system for Road Scholar Transport to accommodate the company's newly expanded facility and future growth. To recognize cost efficiencies, Frontier's team implemented a centralized Mitel 5000 system that fully integrates Road Scholar's multi-state locations and end users and supports their diverse communications requirements.
"Road Scholar Transport was expanding its headquarters building but it had a 20-year-old high-risk phone system," said Mike Grohs, Enterprise Account Executive, Frontier Communications. "The business is phone dependent and could not afford to be out of service for long periods. Furthermore, the older phone system would not accommodate the additional phones from the facility's expansion. Frontier provided them with a versatile new Mitel system that will support Road Scholar's future growth without requiring a completely revamped platform." "We chose Frontier Communications for this major equipment installation because of our history together and the company's responsiveness," said Jim Barrett, President, Road Scholar Transport. "Their employees are partners with us, and their technicians, hands down, are the best. Whenever we need support, Frontier's technicians are like first-responders, quickly arriving, assessing and providing outstanding service. They are professional and cordial, expediting whatever is required to keep our business running smoothly." Road Scholar Transport has grown into a large asset based carrier serving the Truckload, LTL and Auto Hauling needs of businesses and individuals throughout the lower 48 states.
Frontier Communications Corp. offers broadband, voice, satellite video, wireless Internet data access, data security solutions, bundled offerings, specialized bundles for residential customers, small businesses and home offices.
