Phones of the Day: Avaya Partner 18D Euro and 18D Series II Digital Telephones at J. Alexanders Restaurant Oakbrook, IL

Busy restaurants tend to put two phones next to each other at a host stand in order to handle the large amount of calls coming in to make reservations or check on wait times.  

This restaurant, which has awesome service and awesome food, has two different generations of Avaya Partner sets next to each other.  The older Euro styled set is on the left with an even older first generation Partner square handset, while the phone on the right is the latest and last model of Partner phones produced, called the Series II.  

The amount of people and companies out there who love their Partner systems are endless.  They are slow to give them up and upgrade.  Examples include stores like Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, Eddie Bauer, restaurants like Portillos and Panera Bread, and many small businesses that don’t want to give up the ease and reliability of these phones and systems.
