As our current telephone system approaches the end of its life, we are transitioning to a more modern and flexible option: Zoom Phone.


Key Benefits Include:

  • Unified Communications: Streamline how we connect by integrating voice calls, video calls, and messaging on a single platform. This integration enhances collaboration across campus.

  • Increased Mobility and Flexibility: Make and receive calls using your JCU phone number from anywhere, whether you're at home, in the office, or on the move.

  • Scalability: Easily adjust telecommunication resources to meet changing needs without the physical limitations of traditional phone systems.

  • Integration with Tools You Use: Zoom works effortlessly with Canvas, Google, and other tools you use daily, making it a versatile choice for everyone.

Transition Plan:

  • Phased Migration: We will migrate to Zoom Phone in stages throughout the summer. Each department/building will receive a specific timeline and detailed instructions to ensure a smooth transition with minimal disruption.

  • Supporting Sustainability: By moving away from physical phones, we significantly reduce electronic waste and contribute to a greener campus environment. If you still require a physical handset or a headset, please complete the request form by May 18th and one will be installed over the summer.

  • Additional information, including training options, will be communicated as the project proceeds.
