Langhorne, PA, October 30, 2005—ISS Solutions, a leading provider of custom Information Technology and Clinical Engineering lifecycle management, announced today it will add a Nortel Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) switch as part of a major upgrade to their contact center operations. The upgrade, which is scheduled for implementation in mid-October, will also include Nortel’s powerful Symposium call center application to harness the full capabilities of the switch.

The new VolP switch will give ISS Solutions more flexibility to offer client-specific solutions. For instance, the skills-based routing feature routes inbound calls to the most qualified, available client service representatives. A new, highly customizable call reporting system is also being introduced, which will record call information and enable management to increase responsiveness. The VoIP switch will grant ISS Solutions’ clients faster call resolution and better overall service.

Herb Viniarski, Director of Information Technology Services for ISS Solutions, commented, “We’re excited about the increased service and better reporting functionality that we’re now able to offer.” He added that the switch allows seamless call routing to off-site locations in the event of an emergency. “Our clients’ calls will be answered no matter the circumstances.”

ISS Solutions upgrades its contact center operations as part of their ongoing mission to provide exceptional technology lifecycle management. In addition to technical call center solutions, ISS Solutions offers network infrastructure development, network security systems, technology acquisition, asset management services, and clinical engineering equipment management.
