Cloud communications company Vonage said Tuesday it was awarded an RFP to provide voice, unified communications and collaboration solutions to members of the Educational Services Commission of New Jersey (ESCNJ), which includes more than 1,300 public agencies throughout the state.
“We are honored to have been chosen to provide these agencies in our home state with the tools they need to bring better, faster and more meaningful connections to schools, businesses and municipalities,” said Mario DeRiggi, senior vice president, Channel Sales for Holmdel-based Vonage.
ESCNJ works in partnership with New Jersey school districts to coordinate cost-efficient purchasing opportunities for educational institutions and municipalities to limit the tax burden on New Jersey residents.
DeRiggi continued: “As a New Jersey-headquartered company, we know firsthand the innovative spirit that flows through the schools and institutions of this great state. We look forward to being an integral part of this digital transformation to help New Jersey public agencies continue to provide the best tools and technology to faculty and students alike.”
Through the ESCNJ partnerships, schools and education institutions across the state will have the ability to ignite digital transformation initiatives by taking advantage of Vonage’s portfolio of unified communications, contact center and communications APIs. This unique and powerful combination will now be available to New Jersey educators and municipalities to transform the way they connect internally among staff and externally with the greater community, students and parents.
