As well as telephone services the internal Paragon network will be upgraded giving the future ability to better integrate applications with telephony.

Barry Alford, IT Manager for Paragon, said: “Responding to our residents in a faster and more efficient manner, value for money, along with the quality of ongoing support were the key criteria in selecting the solution proposed by the South West Communications Group.“
