Case studies and articles

[Matthew Ingersole, Chief Information Officer, Surf Life Saving NSW]: Through our State Operations Centre, we coordinate the activities of our 76,000 members across 2000 kilometres of coastline in New South Wales.

We need a telephony system that is robust, reliable, and always works because people's lives are on the line.

When we rolled out TIPT, we really wanted to increase the flexibility for our staff to be able to take calls when and where it suited them best.

So, if they were working from home, for example, they could have the same experience that they would have in the office from a telephony perspective. 

Not just the flexibility, but also the robustness of the solution was really important for us as well.

So, it needed to be something that was bulletproof.

One of the things that really stood out about the Telstra TIPT system was its reliability and its uptime, and the quality of the calls that was similar to the old-school PABX.

That was a really significant factor in us choosing the Telstra TIPT system. 

The key features of TIPT that make a difference to us are the call Hunt Groups, the ability to call queue, the ability to add, move, and change users between Hunt Groups and have it instantly reflected within the system itself, and obviously the integration with Dubber Call Recording and all of the other Liberate features that we use as well.

Through the TIPT call system, we have an IVR, an Interactive Voice Response, where, if it's an emergency, people can press 1 and their call will be prioritised through, or if they press 2, then it'll go through to the normal call flow, and then one of the operators will answer it.

But depending on time-of-day calling, people will either come through to our operation centre or they'll go to our after-hours operators.

Anytime that we receive a call, our operators specifically have an opportunity to be able to answer that on their desk phone device, on their laptop, or on their mobile as well, when it's liberated. 

[Hanna Clare, NSW State Duty Officer, Surf Life Saving NSW]: With Surf Life Saving New South Wales taking up the Liberate and TIPT apps, we can guarantee that all our phones will be answered and that you'll always speak to a member of the State Operations Centre through the Hunt Groups that have been created.

Things you need to know

Please note that all TIPT Services in operation at your TIPT site must subscribe to a TIPT Complete Calling plan. To receive the TIPT Complete Calling Plan, all active numbers on your TIPT Service must have the same plan, at the same monthly rate, applied to them. An active number is a TIPT phone number with a basic, standard, or executive pack allocated to it. Devices subject to the TIPT Complete Calling Plan monthly charge may include equipment such as handsets, conference phones, and IADs, or users of Telstra Business Connect.

The TIPT Complete call plan rates are only available to calls originating from your IP Telephony service. All other call types not included in the TIPT Complete Calling plan will be rated according to your contracted rates or OCT, as applicable.

The monthly rate for the TIPT Compete Calling Plan is calculated by the total amount of active numbers on your TIPT. When you add or delete active numbers from your service, you are changing the amount of active numbers on your network. When you request such changes, we will audit the amount of active numbers on your enterprise to see if your eligibility for the monthly rate changes. If your eligibility changes, we may move you to another monthly rate at our discretion.

Installation and configuration charges apply as per current TIPT pricing.

The offer is only available on a 12- or 36-month contract term. Offers are valid for recontracting and new Business and Enterprise customers. Early termination of your contract will result in early termination charges being applied. This offer will not be valid in conjunction with other Telstra promotional offers unless otherwise specified. This offer is compatible with All-4-Biz plans taken out from 14/10/2014.

You must not use the TIPT Service under the TIPT Complete Calling Plan Discount in a way that Telstra deems to be excessive or unreasonable. Under the TIPT Complete Calling Plan Discount, excessive use will be defined as more than 1,200 calls per month from a single service. To ensure that excessive use is not taking place, we may audit your use of the service from time to time.
