Digital Academic Research Transformation (formerly PMACS)

Major Projects Announcements

The PennFlex Phone Migration project is underway!

The University of Pennsylvania has selected Vonage as its next generation enterprise phone system. Vonage provides many advantages over Penn's previous VOIP provider, including the use of a mobile and software phone application that lets you take your number with you on the go.

Submit a request to exchange your old handset for a PennFlex Phone handset.

See the PSOM PennFlex Phone site for more information.
