Effective Technology for Smart Businesses

Frontier Technology

In the new age of technology, businesses need to stay ahead of the curve, ensuring any communications system implemented is reliable, scalable and futureproofed.

Now, more than ever before, we’re relying on our technology to run our businesses – after all, we’re only as efficient as the systems we use.

We often hear from businesses struggling to keep up with customer demand, simply due to their outdated, unreliable systems and processes; no business can elevate their operations without the functionality to do so, and this usually starts with a technology review.

Over the last few years we’ve seen businesses take the long overdue leap into the digital world, hanging up their office keys and adjusting their webcams as they joined the technological revolution.

No matter which platform we're using or who we may be talking to, we are more comfortably connected than ever before.

With Unified Communications systems set to completely replace traditional PBX's in the next 5 years due to the ISDN switch off, the addition of collaborative software gives us the platform to combine all of our communications from wherever we are.

Video call, conferencing, chat and screen share has changed the way the business world works, almost overnight, with the transition and roll out being less complex than most people anticipated.

Although focus has shifted and homeworking is more prevalent than ever before, the world of unified comms was built for businesses operating both on and off site. This makes the complete model perfect for organisations of any scale, in the office, remote working or a mixture of both.

Businesses that adopt future-proofed technology early, see results faster. Read on for the type of remote and office solutions we provide.

Frontier Technology Case Study
Age Scotland

“Charity helps nation respond to COVID-19 emergency as incoming calls soar by 500%”


Age Scotland needed a solution that could deliver on its goals.

The charity wanted a mobilised workforce, calls and queues in one place, a single set of reporting and the ability to access call records remotely.

The IT team wanted to spend less time fixing tech issues with its existing platform. They understood the advantages of switching to the cloud and having a complete refresh. Age Scotland suddenly found itself on the front-line – needing to provide vital services to protect age groups most at risk from Covid-19.

Age Scotland selected the 8×8 XSeries platform, combining cloud PBX, video conferencing and contact centre capabilities.
Then COVID-19 struck and deployment became urgent.

In fact, the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, stepped in with immediate funding. Five days later, the system was live. Frontier and 8×8 had pulled out all the stops. “We closed on Friday, spent the weekend doing online learning and launched on the following Monday,” Stated Laura Stenhouse, Telephony Manager.


“Frontier’s expertise proved spot on.

The 8×8 X Series met and exceeded expectations. It was easy to use, and employees could access the communication platforms they needed from home. 8×8 provided the qualitative data we needed as a charity for audits and compliance with 18 different laws,” recalls Stenhouse.

We could also add a donation line to service our fundraising campaign.

“The cloud tech really works for us,” says John Douglas, IT Officer.

“Moving services online has been huge. We’ve downsized on-premise equipment , reduced costs and strengthened business continuity. With 8×8, we’ve got extra flexibility in resource provision and could flex up a huge number of licenses easily.” “8×8 surprised us with extra functionality that we now realise we need!” Stenhouse adds, “8×8 Meet has added a whole new dimension to our teams, community groups and veterans projects. We can host friendship circles online and enable people to dial in.” “The system is so intuitive. We’re able to manage queues perfectly and overflow to different teams. The 8×8 solution has been so flexible and such a good investment.”
