Founded in 2005 by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and legal mogul Joel Z. Hyatt, Current TV provides provocative political commentary, insightful news analysis and top-notch programming. Generating a loyal global community of viewers and supporters, Current TV now reaches approximately 60 million households worldwide via cable, satellite, and the Web.
Current TV needed a unified communications platform that would cut pricey long-distance charges, easily scale to meet business demands, and provide pervasive connectivity for its mobile workforce.
Current TV deployed a ShoreTel UC Solution, with ShoreTel Communicator, ShoreTel IP Phones, and more than 557 licenses, to connect sales offices and studio locations around the globe. Several years later, Current TV added ShoreTel Mobility to meet the growing demands of its mobile workforce.
With ShoreTel they have realized benefits including:
- Real cost savings on long-distance usage and cellular phone charges.
- Far-reaching yet seamless connectivity for mobile and desktop users and for customers.
- Reliable, secure VoIP architecture and integrated feature-rich UC tools.
