Unified Communications Provide Employee Mobility and Enhanced Productivity

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2013) -  Whaleback Managed Services, the leader in managed unified communications services, announced today that IdeaPaint, the leader and innovator in workplace collaboration technology via its unique dry erase paint that transforms any smooth surface into an erasable canvas, has implemented Whaleback's CrystalBlue Contact Center and Unified Communications managed services to assist the company with sales, customer service and mobility. IdeaPaint has grown rapidly over the past few years and has brought the human element back to more than 75,000 offices, schools and homes around the world by simply getting people on their feet to collaborate and explore their creativity wherever ideas happen.

Since its launch in 2008, Ashland, MA-based IdeaPaint has experienced rapid growth and required a business communications solution that was flexible, scalable and reliable. With the sales team often working remotely or from the road, IdeaPaint needed a phone system that provided them with the flexibility to get work done from anywhere. IdeaPaint also selected Whaleback's CrystalBlue Contact Center to deliver quick and efficient customer service through effective inbound call management.

"As a company that understands the benefits of personal communication, it was imperative that we connect with sales prospects in a timely and efficient manner. Whaleback was instrumental in helping our company handle the rapid increase in the volume of customer inquiries," said Chris Doney from IdeaPaint.

"IdeaPaint is an innovative company that needs flexible and reliable business solutions that can keep up with their rapid growth. We have painted several walls at WhaleBack's headquarters with IdeaPaint," said Chris Daly, CEO of Whaleback Managed Services. "My team uses these walls to capture their ideas all the time."
