Leicester City wins the Premiership – with a little help from SpliceCom
Leicester City clinched the Premier League crown with two games to go after Spurs drew 2-2 with Chelsea on Monday night. Leicester held Manchester United 1-1 at Old Trafford, despite finishing the match with ten men, the day before, requiring their North London rivals to win all three remaining games to stay in contention for the Premiership race. The Fantastic Foxes, as they're affectionately known, had already qualified for the European Champions League next season.
Leicester City has been using an on-premise ‘cloud ready' SpliceCom voice solution, including Vision Business Management application, to handle their evolving unified communication needs, since 2010. The SpliceCom solution utilises some 200 IP and analogue handsets around Leicester City's King Power Stadium, training ground and other key locations, running as a single unified system. Paulo Sousa, Sven-Goran Eriksson, Nigel Pearson and now Claudio Ranieri have all utilised the phone tagged "Manager" on the SpliceCom system over this period.
According to Martine Morgan, Leicester City's Purchasing Manager, the greatest advantage of the SpliceCom solution is its flexibility. "Leicester City now receives a tailored level of service that reflects the clubs changing needs throughout the season. What doesn't change are the benefits that this great solution provides to us, our partners and most importantly, our fantastic supporters."
From the Championship to the Premier League title and on to challenge the top clubs in in Europe; SpliceCom's voice solution has evolved with and supported Leicester City on every step of their incredible journey - and will continue to do so into the future.
