In 2015, OCMW Berlare was seeking a new supplier of telecom services for De Zilverberk, a complex with 25 sheltered housing units for the elderly. As specified by the law on government contracts, the OCMW decided to request comparable offers from a minimum of three potential suppliers. The decision ultimately went in favour of Nextel.
What did OCMW Berlare need?
OCMW Berlare wanted a flexible solution for telephony with integration of an alarm call system for the elderly and an efficient tool to have access, through any device, to their internal software applications.
Nextel had the most attractive offer, with the lowest maintenance costs.
