Smart Choice Communications keeps 70th Annual Tony Awards connected with fast and reliable hosted voice solutions.

NEW YORKJune 14, 2016PRLog — Smart Choice Communications (SCC), a leading technology company, today announced the implementation of a successful hosted voice solution for the 70th Annual Tony Awards. Broadway’s biggest night took place live from the Beacon Theatre in New York City on June 12, drawing 8.7 million viewers-the show’s best numbers in over a decade.

“Acknowledging the magnitude and prestige of the Tony Awards, we were determined to successfully implement our solutions within a timely manner.” stated Elisa Caro, SCC’s Director of Sales. “The entire phone system was installed and fully operational the day after contract agreements were signed.”

The Tony Awards ceremony is internationally renowned, requiring a great deal of planning and coordination between different departments and outside parties. After careful review of top VoIP providers, the Tony Awards’ IT department carefully selected SCC as the indisputable choice to implement their phone solution based on their reputation for fast execution and expert solutions. Offering unsurpassed network reliability, uptime and support, SCC remains an industry leader in end-to-end telecommunications.

Two weeks before the ceremony, the company dispatched SCC-Expert Technicians to the Beacon Theatre to implement the system, including installation of one router, two switches, and twenty-five SCC-Certified phones including phone numbers. Prior to and during the event, calls were exchanged over SCC’s Hosted Network regarding everything from customer service to event logistics-with 100% uptime and no missed calls. Utilizing SCC’s reliable and redundant network, the Tony Awards staff was able to fully concentrate on running the event, with no issues in their phone service.

This year’s Tony Awards reached the highest ratings in 15 years, due in large part to the popularity and success of critically-acclaimed hip-hop musical, Hamilton-winner of 11 Tony Awards from a record 16 nominations. With the tremendous buzz surrounding this year’s ceremony, SCC’s network provided fast and efficient connectivity, allowing for successful pre-planning and an outstanding show.
