Bell, Temple Barristers & Solicitors Case Study

Bell, Temple Barristers & Solicitors was founded in 1945, and is one of the leading litigation law firms in Canada. The firm specializes in providing litigation services to corporations, associations, institutions, insurers and their policyholders.

The Need

Bell, Temple’s previous phone system had been in place for 12 years and was becoming obsolete both in terms of functionality and availability of replacement parts.

The firm was considering VoIP technology to replace their dated phone system with a new hosted VoIP solution that would allow them to:

  1. Eliminate aging hardware.
  2. Realize a new and much-needed level of mobility.
  3. Lower the costs associated with their telephone system.

“When I joined Bell Temple three years ago I actually had experience with Epik from my previous employer and I always found them to be professional, accommodating; they were always up to date with the new technologies, and also customer service – you can’t surpass their customer service.”

Rose Devoe, Director of Finance and Administration, Bell, Temple


The Solution

Epik Networks put into place a TOTAL VOICE solution for approximately 100 users. Implementation allowed for features that are customizable per user and included an upgraded IP Phone.

The solution also eliminated Bell, Temple’s ownership of aging hardware. With Epik looking after the installation and regular upgrading of equipment and system technology, Bell, Temple eliminated the need for substantial associated resources and costs.

“…The wonderful thing about the system is that it can be customized to a user level and you don’t actually need to invest thousands and thousands of dollars to actually purchase modules that only one or two users will be able to use.”

Rose Devoe, Director of Finance and Administration, Bell, Temple


The Result

The Epik solution saved Bell, Temple $25,000 – $30,000 over the course of 3 years while providing the firm with an up to date hosted VoIP system that has helped them to realize greater efficiencies.

Lawyers are now able to log into the system, see incoming calls, review voicemail messages and set up conference calls: All online and seamlessly both in office and remotely.

This has allowed work to take place from all across the globe without any disruption to client service and with overall improvements to the firm’s productivity level.

“Part of the reason we decided to go with a VoIP system at Epik Networks was because of the disaster recovery plan that we were looking at. With this phone system you can actually pick up your phone, take it home, plug it into a computer and you’re connected to office.”
