Village of Bridgeview

The Village of Bridgeview was approaching contract term renewals for voice and data services from various vendors. The Village also needed to modernize their telecom facilities to eliminate ongoing service disruption,yet the vendors and providers were unwilling to collaborate and propose a practical solution.It was critical that all telecom changes were non-disruptive to business operations, were competitively priced, and they accounted for any shortcomings that were realized with past vendors.

Affected entities included the Village Hall, Police and Fire departments, Public Works departments, Park District, Sports Dome, and Toyota Park - a Major League Soccer stadium owned and operated by the Village of Bridgeview.
