I have done both but majority is in hospitality. Tons of experience with CAS, VM, and all interfaces.

I suppose I should mention that all of mine is Hospitality, with the exception of 1 Chevrolet dealer, which was the 1st Mitel I ever put in! An SX100 204, no less. Oh yeah 2 Super 10's, 1 for a nurses association, and (This one doesn't count) 1 for my company that we used for 5 years before I moved on to bigger and better digs. If I had to total my Hospitality installs, between actual install and orchestrating installs, 400(?). And the CAS, VM, and PMS that gave me fits, until I started running into the same PMS reps and they started trusting me. Apparently, most PMS reps deal with idiots, to listen to their side of the story. I'm here to tell you that just the opposite is true! The funniest PMS experience I ever had was when the rep handed me a set of specs that were copies of my spec sheet. Literally, COPIES of my handwritten AND signed by yours truly spec sheet. So I mentioned that I had seen those before and that the guy that wrote 'em was pretty sharp. When we were ready for some late program downloads from the reps home office, she told the gal she was talking to that I seemed to know what I was doing and had seen the specs before. For some reason the remote gal figured out who I was and asked to speak to me. Low and behold, the gal that I had originally given the spec sheet to. Like old home week,and the installer was suitably impressed. Ran into that installer when she was training another installer. The newbie started to take exception with my arrangements and the trainer took the newbie around the corner for a minute and then told me to train the newbie! THAT was the best compliment I EVER got from any customer, co-worker, or whoever! smile John C. (Not Garand)

Alex, I know what a 'boiler room' is in this context, But I'll bet most dont, now that the companies have actually set up in 1 place and use '800' and cheap L/D. A 'Boiler Room' in this context means a really cheap place to rent. The traveling Photo company, vacume cleaner outfit, or whatever, had the local telco run in 5-25 lines, or more, depending on local population. Hire a bunch of talkers, hand them scripts, give them a little tutoring, and awaaay we go. You were generally paid by leads produced. The reason they were called 'boiler rooms', That was usually the cheapest space available, and the telco's demarc was usually where? That's right, the boiler room. Installation time was low and cheap. And now you know another little piece of trivia. It's a whole lot more sophisticated now, with predictive dialers, silent monitoring with barge-in, etc. smile John C. (Not Garand)

I'd say 90-95% hospitality, including big hotels and groups of up-scale inns; a few produce brokers; a corkscrew company (really); more hospitality; a couple of office type / cube-farm places (think Dilbert); ... that's about it.

Back in the day, I had Mitels in an attorney's office, a college, as my PBX replacemnt for a Leich 40 (don't ask), a pair of 200D's working off a T-1 for a plant/office environment, and all the rest were motels.

The Super10 is still in my warehouse along with the SX-5, SX-10, and the SX-200 maintenance spare that just got laundered courtesy of Resale Systems. BTW not many businessmen would meet you at midnight to pick up a switch, thanks Fred!

Pretty much now, all that's left is motels, a pair of 200's a 200 EL, a 50, and a 20, plus some inactive accounts.

Carl Navarro:

Do you still have the Leich 40? (sorry, I had to ask) or the SX-5 and/or SX-10? I would be interested in purchasing them.

No. And I dragged the SG-1 to the landfill in 1999 after holding it for about 13 years. The county was generous in that they took it for free with all that iron.

I think I still have the comb gizmo that pulls the crossbars out of the link finder switches in the Leich.
