Modernizing Communication Infrastructure:

Touch Blue's Implementation of a new telephony platform at Jason Kenny Leisure Centre


The following case study examines the successful deployment of an Avaya IP Office by Touch Blue, at the Jason Kenny Leisure Centre in Bolton. This case study highlights the challenges faced by the leisure centre’s outdated PBX system and how Touch Blue’s expertise and the Avaya IP Office brought about significant improvements in communication and operational efficiency.


The Jason Kenny Leisure Centre, located in Bolton, has been a popular recreational facility for many years. However, the centre’s communication infrastructure heavily relied on an outdated legacy PBX system. The system suffered from frequent downtime, limited functionality, and the inability to scale to meet the evolving needs of the centre’s staff and visitors.


Limited Functionality

The legacy PBX system lacked advanced features such as voicemail, call routing, and call reporting, limiting the leisure centre’s ability to provide efficient customer service.

Frequent Downtime

The aging PBX system experienced regular downtime, resulting in communication disruptions and frustrated staff members.

Lack of Scalability

The leisure centre’s PBX lacked the ability for any future expansion plans to accommodate the growing number of staff members and visitors.


Touch Blue proposed the implementation of the Avaya IP Office solution to address the Jason Kenny Leisure Centre’s communication challenges. An on-premise PBX was chosen due to the requirement to reuse existing legacy cabling infrastructure. The Avaya IP Office is a robust and flexible communication platform that combines voice, messaging, and collaboration capabilities into a single solution.
