Collegeboxes and GrandCentral Partner for Innovative Customer Service

January 31, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
The emergence of Web 2.0 has seen many companies collaborate in order to enhance each other’s service offerings. In a move certain to revolutionize the convenience of storage solutions for college students, Collegeboxes and GrandCentral Communications have combined their core services into an exciting new partnership.

Collegeboxes is a progressive student storage provider offering secure services for customers returning home for the summer or studying abroad for extended periods. GrandCentral is pioneering linked telecommunication tools which allow one central number and online location for all calls and messages. The combination of the two companies’ respective specialties has enabled a one-click call center connection service – at no additional cost to students.

Collegeboxes customers will now be able to connect to customer service with a single mouse-click, courtesy of the integration of GrandCentral’s cutting-edge VOIP technology. ”This is a unique, customer-centric feature that is exclusive to Collegeboxes”, said VP Josh Kowitt. “Providing top-notch customer service convenience is our number one goal.” Once a student enters their phone number into GrandCentral they will have a direct line to the CollegeBoxes customer service department and will never again have to remember those digits during the course of their hectic class schedules.

The advantages of a free GrandCentral account don’t end with the CollegeBoxes benefits. Students will be provided with a free local number that rings their existing phones (cell, dorm room, office) and the ability to upload their own ring back tones. “GrandCentral is very excited to work with Collegeboxes to provide college students with a phone number they’ll be able to keep for the rest of their lives, Said COO Vincent Paquet. “Because the GrandCentral number stays the same for life, there will be no need for students to change numbers each time they move or even when they graduate from college, making it easier than ever for them to stay in touch with friends and family.”
