PhoneSuite Unveils Cash for PBX Clunkers Program

The government’s recent Cash for Clunkers program helped the environment by getting thousands of gas-guzzling cars off the roads.

Now, PhoneSuite is bringing that concept to the hospitality industry in an effort to rid hotels of older, energy-guzzling telephone systems.
 
PhoneSuite, a leading provider of telecom solutions designed exclusively for the hospitality industry, and participating authorized PhoneSuite resellers have set up a $1 million fund to reward hoteliers for replacing their aging, environmentally unfriendly phone systems. From now until March 31, 2010, or when the fund is gone, hotel owners who purchase an energy-efficient PhoneSuite hotel/motel PBX will receive a rebate check directly from PhoneSuite for $25 for every room in their property (e.g. a 100-room hotel will receive $2,500).

“Hoteliers are losing money (many unknowingly) and hurting the environment by keeping their obsolete phone systems operating, but have been reluctant to make a change due to the economy,” said PhoneSuite President Frank Melville. “This program now gives hotel owners the opportunity to upgrade to an affordable system that conserves energy and lowers electric bills by hundreds of dollars. PhoneSuite is trying to do its part to improve the environment and save our customers money.”

PhoneSuite’s ultra low-power consumption system is at least twice as efficient, sometimes even four times more efficient than the competitors’ products. Its energy-efficient design has no moving parts and therefore gives off very little heat or electromagnetic energy, making PhoneSuite not only green, but also more dependable and cost-effective than other systems on the market.

As part of the program, PhoneSuite will be collecting and recycling the old phone systems using a nearby eco-friendly recycling company in Boulder, Colo., which oversees the recycling of electronic parts instead of sending them off to be disassembled under less than environmentally friendly circumstances.

Providing upscale service for mid-size properties, PhoneSuite integrates seamlessly with property management systems and eliminates hours of training with its easy-to-use console. And PhoneSuite remains dedicated to the hospitality industry by offering U.S.-made, energy-efficient products that are approved and installed at numerous national hotel chains.

For over 20 years, PhoneSuite has leveraged its expertise in communication technology, providing high-quality, low-power consuming products. Unlike other telecom companies, PhoneSuite is dedicated to the design and manufacture of products exclusively for the hotel industry. PhoneSuite is proud to have installed over 2,700 systems in properties ranging from bed and breakfasts to 475-room franchise hotels throughout the United States and Canada. The company's products, combined with its nationwide dealer support and engineering expertise, create reliable communication solutions that meet or exceed all hotel requirements by offering features such as answer detection, T1 digital trunk support, wake-up calls, PMS interfaces, integrated auto attendant, call accounting, voice mail, and many more. PhoneSuite is also a founding sponsor of AAHOA, a member of AH&LA and a platinum member of HTNG, and was recognized by the Denver Business Journal in 2007 as one of the Top 25 Fastest Growing Small Private Companies.
