In accordance with McGill's Climate & Sustainability Strategy, McGill is moving to a new telephone system to reduce our environmental footprint related to our physical phone system. Endorsed by the McGill Leadership team, all future users of the new telephone system will be provided with a softphone solution that enables user mobility, productivity, and flexibility.

Take your business phone wherever you go!

McGill's communication and collaboration tools are adapting to today's changing work environment. As more of us working in non-traditional office scenarios, or on the go, we need to be able to stay in contact no matter where we are. 

The Telephone Evolution Project promises to deliver a solution that fits your flexible work needs. The new system is based on the Cisco Webex technology, which allows you to answer and initiate calls from your office phone number wherever you may be working -- home, office or mobile device. Make calls to internal colleagues or contacts across the globe, directly from your computer, smartphone, or tablet.
