Many folks throughout the United States are preparing to pack up their cars, kids and vacation gear and head out for Memorial Day weekend, kicking off the summer road season. Pilot Flying J, the largest operator of travel centers in North America, is officially marking the day by declaring Friday, May 24th National Road Trip Day.
Many of you will take comfort knowing there’s a welcoming, familiar pit stop waiting for you, roadside. These quick-stops, convenience stores, restaurants, and hotels certainly keep you moving. And for some of the most recognized travel centers, they count on the advanced features found in a top Unified Communications solution to help stay focused on serving you better.
That’s true for Bossleman Enterprises, the family-owned company behind hundreds of Pilot Travel Centers and Flying J Travel Plazas, those brightly-lit oasis that beckons to travelers along the interstate. In fact, the Midwestern-based conglomerate’s retail division includes: Pump & Pantry fuel stops; over 40 Boss Shop automotive service centers; and dozens of hotel franchises. They also have a healthy mix of Grandma Max’s restaurants and diners, food courts, and various other roadside eateries to keep your family and your automobile fueled during your great adventure.
And as for that UC solution assisting Bosselman Enterprises’ quest in making life better for American’s drivers? It’s the Switchvox UC solution that Bosselman Enterprises turned to when replacing its aging Shoretel system. Like most companies needing to upgrade to a UC system, Bosselman wanted to save money on overall operating costs, connect a growing mobile and remote workforce, and gain an uplift in customer service capabilities while moving beyond the basic functionality of their legacy phone system.
