Migrating from a legacy PBX platform to Metzo requires a clear understanding of your existing infrastructure, call flows, features, trunking, and groups. ECG develops a migration plan that fits your schedule to migrate your users in a way that minimizes impact and risk.

Moves/Adds/Changes

Metzo support provides full support for moves, adds, and changes within the VoIP network. With a single call to your Metzo support desk, you can easily make any subscriber changes within the network. You can physically move VoIP phones between Metzo Ethernet ports within the infrastructure, or use Metzo on-site Resident Engineering support for physical moves within the campus.

When Metzo End-Users have questions about their service or problems, they can call in to the help desk that is staffed 24x7 and get their problems solved quickly. This support, which comes standard with Metzo, lifts the support staffing burden from enterprises, and provides high quality support from day-one.
