HICKORY, N.C., Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Fortran Corporation (FRTN), a leading communications system integrator announced today its subsidiary, CCI-Telecom Inc., has landed the unified telecommunications migration contract with the Carnegie Hotel and Spa in Johnson City, TN.

Through this agreement, CCI-Telecom will provide its industry-leading unified communications solution, Avaya’s IP Office, replacing the legacy Nortel. This platform provides flexibility, scalability and fixes costs for the future thus creating an attractive return on investment. In partnership with DuVoice, an Avaya DevConnect partner, CCI designed a solution that automates front desk tasks and delivers unified guest and staff messaging.

“The CCI team put together a solution that allows the customer to utilize existing infrastructure to save cabling costs but still take advantage of VoIP cost savings down the road. In addition, the customer gains a ton of mobility options with Avaya’s One-X mobile technology, stated Fortran’s COO Todd Rankin.

“I’ve been conducting business with CCI for almost 20-years on numerous Hotels that I have developed. CCI does not oversell you what you don’t need but instead a system you can add to in the future, they meet your time schedule and stand behind their work.” said Charles Johnson, Owner of the Carnegie Hotel and Spa.
