SAN JOSE , Calif., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- PWT-IT Solutions Inc. a leading IT resource solution provider and 3Com(R) Gold service partner, announced today the successful design and implementation of a new VoIP dial plan and Wide Area Network for Silicon Valley Auto Group, (SVAG) Northern California's largest new and pre-owned exotic automobile dealership.

Based in Los Gatos, SVAG focuses on premium sales, service and support for Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls Royce, Saleen 7, Spyker and other premium performance autos. As part of maintaining its ever-growing business, SVAG selected PWT-IT Solutions to help design and implement a new integrated phone network. SVAG needed a system that would provide seamless linking between the company's three main showrooms and its brand new (state-of-the-art) service and parts facility.

"For more than 30 years, our company has had the privilege of presenting the finest in hand-crafted luxury and executive sport automobiles to the Bay area's most discerning clientele," said Mark Reeve , General Manager at Silicon Valley Auto Group. "Our customers deserve and expect to have an absolutely professional and fluid experience when they interact with us, from initial inquiry to setting a service appointment. We wanted to provide the very best customer interface possible to ensure every call is greeted and managed with the highest level of care and commitment. PWT has helped us create and has successfully put that new phone system in place."

Based on 3Com's proven Switch 4500 and NBX V3000 VoIP system, PWT-IT designed a new WAN network and VoIP Dial Plan to facilitate seamless voice traffic between the emporium's three distinct showrooms, and its new service facility. The new phone network features: direct three-digit dialing, call routing, voice mail transfer, teleconferencing and paging between sites.

"Our sales and service centers support the finest automobiles made," said Dominick Pelusi, Marketing Manager at Silicon Valley Auto Group. "We have certified specialists throughout our organization to ensure the highest level of customer support and our phone network needed to meet that criteria as well. We selected PWT-IT based on their performance record and they have delivered, providing us with excellent product and support and completing the key elements of our system requirements with no service disruption."

David Ricci , Technical Project Manager and Suibin Zhang, Senior Network and VoIP Engineer led the PWT-IT team and worked closely with SVGA to create an optimal network implementation providing leading edge features and functionality for SVGA as well as its customers and business contacts.

"One of the concerns about this project that was imperative to our planning and design was the desire to keep all of the system routing and call transfer management invisible to the user," said Suibin Zhang of PWT-IT Solutions. "We constructed the system so that (based on the incoming dialed number), the new network is able to identify and in real-time route the caller to the correct receptionist for each location or department at SVGA. We even installed new full featured 3Com 3102 business phones in the main offices, at the parts desk, service writer desks and repair bays as a final step to complete the project installation."

In an on-going effort to provide the ultimate in driving experiences Silicon Valley Auto Group now has its customers calling in style as well.

"Our engineering and customer support teams worked closely with 3Com, Mr. Pelusi and his group to architect a phone network that conveys professionalism and manages voice traffic in a totally transparent way," said Rany Polany president of PWT-IT Solutions Inc. "Working together we have implemented a network that exceeds today's communications challenges while providing for tomorrow's business growth."
