Screen-printed handsets for the University of Glasgow
Masterpoint are a professional, engineering-biased communications solution provider, specialising in large projects and specialist communications applications. They recently scored a major success in winning a prestigious 10–year contract for fully managed Voice and Data Services for the Students at the University of Glasgow. Amongst other things, the project provides a telephone and an Internet access point in each of the Students’ rooms – helping to improve the services offered by the University to their Students.
A key element of the project was the provision of 2,000 telephones. These needed to be low-cost yet extremely reliable, wall-mountable and printed with the University’s logo for security purposes. Masterpoint discussed the issue with their Interquartz supplier, Westcon, the global networking and telecommunications distributor, who suggested the Interquartz IQ10. The University were happy to accept this recommendation, having used Interquartz telephones in their offices for many years.
Interquartz IQ10 is a user friendly, robust and reliable product and we are confident that our users will enjoy many years of service from their handset
said Neil Campbell from the University.
Elsewhere, the IQ10 has already been a great success with Universities, with thousands of units already installed in offices and Halls of Residence in dozens of Universities.
We are very grateful to both Westcon and Masterpoint for winning this deal said Roy Stephenson, Interquartz Distributor Account Manager.
The IQ10 is a great ‘phone and has proved to be a real success in its first year. Because we have our own factory, we were able to screen print the telephones for the University during manufacture, which means we could deliver the highest quality at the lowest price.
Mick Everett, the Sales Director at Masterpoint, said
The complete project included many elements – structured cabling, telephone systems, Voice Mail, Ethernet hardware, servers, Phonecard platform and Network Services. With so much equipment being installed and commissioned during the Student’s summer break, it was extremely useful that Interquartz met the tight delivery timescales.
