NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of advanced network, communication and IT solutions, today announced that Sol Casinos’ Casino Del Sol Resort, Spa and Conference Center will be deploying NEC’s UC for Enterprise, UNIVERGE SV8500 and UNIVERGE UM4730 unified communications solutions.

 Casino Del Sol, operated by the Pascua Yaqui Tribe in Tucson, Ariz., will be expanding its use of NEC’s communications solutions to help it improve collaboration among employees and enhance guests’ experiences with the expansion of the property this fall.

“It is important that at every touch point, Casino Del Sol customers get the best experience possible,” said Mark Birtha, president and chief development officer for Sol Casinos. “NEC’s UNIVERGE SV8500 helps us streamline communication, allowing us to process guests needs faster and better utilize our resources. Throughout our 10-year relationship with NEC, their systems have never gone down at our facility. We knew that when we upgraded to the new platform we’d be getting the same seamless experience with additional benefits.”

With this expansion, Sol Casinos will be adding several new amenities to the new Casino Del Sol Resort, including 65,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor conference space, Hiapsi Spa and Prime Steakhouse, all of which increased its need for connectivity across the property. NEC’s UNIVERGE SV8500 will help the resort stay connected and offers improved guest services, like scheduling reservations, which is an increasingly important part of its growing business.

“We’re pleased with the Sol Casinos management team’s decision to continue its longstanding relationship with Canyon Telecom, sales agent Jason Scheier of StratNet Solutions, and NEC,” said Mike Hosking, CEO of Canyon Telecom. “Sol Casinos’ decision is a testament to Canyon’s depth of expertise in unified communications and voice as an exclusive NEC Double Diamond Dealer. It’s why we continue to be one of the fastest growing NEC authorized distributors in the country.”

“NEC dealer Canyon Telecom suggested UCE as a means for staff to collaborate and deliver excellent customer service, and the UNIVERGE SV8500 to protect Sol Casinos’ current investment,” said Larry Levenberg, vice president of channel sales and marketing, NEC Corporation of America, communication technologies. “Upgrading from NEC’s NEAX 2400 to the SV8500 will allow Sol Casinos to remain with a familiar and easy-to-manage platform, while providing them with additional benefits including business continuity, increased customer responsiveness and simplified business process integration.”
