Case Study Telifone Solutions Telifone Solutions operates a call centre in Teaklands, Tasmania. Koolplex PBX, which is Telifone Solutions’ main information system, is a 10 year old Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. Although when it was purchased Koolplex PBX was the state of the art in CRM systems, it now requires a lot of maintenance and the long periods of downtime is frustrating the Telifone staff and annoying their customers. Telifone currently have a maintenance only contract with Koolplex that costs them $125,000 per year. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and the Chief Information Officer (CIO) have had discussions with Koolplex about updating their CRM from Koolplex PBX to Koolplex IXL, the latest version of Koolplex, which would cost Telifone $1,250,000. This cost takes into account any value of their current system, and includes a maintenance fee of $110,000 per year for the next 3 years. Koolplex would also supply a training program for the call centre staff and this would cost $175,000. The Koolplex IXL system and training program will cost $1,425,000, which could be financed using $750,000 the company has budgeted for the replacement, and the balance needing to be borrowed from their bank at 6.5% annual interest with the repayments spread over 3 years.
