Wellesley, Mass. – June 9, 2015 – Datamart Inc. of Wellesley, Mass. today announced The Boston Globe Newspaper has upgraded their communications system for 1200 users to ShoreTel unified communications with contact center capabilities, realizing improved communications, added mobility and projected cost savings of $1.6 million over five years.
The Boston Globe, a multimedia source of news and information, was plagued with an aging phone system that was no longer supported, and lacked mobility features.

Our partner Datamart is terrific and very professional.”
