Date: Thu, 10/15/2009 - 17:21
Mitel unveils the next phase of its comprehensive software strategy with Mitel Series X Collaboration, showcasing Mitel's complete suite of collaboration solutions including Mitel Unified Communicator Advanced (UC Advanced) and the Mitel TeleCollaboration Solution.
Integrated with Mitel Communications Director software, Mitel collaboration solutions provide organizations of any size or at any growth stage with choice and flexibility. Organizations have the choice of platform (Mitel 3300 IP Communications Platform, IBM, Sun, HP), desktop integration (Microsoft, IBM, Act!), and Mitel collaboration and mobility modules based on individual user requirements.
"The reality is that a generic communications solution does not fit the varying needs of employees within an organization. Mitel Unified Communicator Advanced provides users in organizations regardless of the size or growth stage with a single centralized portal that simplifies the user experience and allows them to acquire the specific applications they need to communicate effectively in their job", said Stephen Beamish, Vice-President Marketing and Business Development, Mitel
For Jack Gulas, Vice-President, Maplesoft Technology, "the promise of the virtual workplace is finally a reality. With the Mitel solution including lifelike telecollaboration, a phone number that follows you everywhere, and UC Advanced access from any hotel, airport or coffee shop, Maplesoft Consulting is now able to shrink distances, simplify management, and solidify teams."
"As a growing communications software vendor, Mitel continues to invest in productivity-enhancing applications for organizations of all sizes which result in both business efficiencies and cost savings. Their collaboration suite not only elevates the end user’s communications experience within their offices but also extends the collaborative environment to remote employees, customers, and suppliers", said Mike Sapien, Principal Analyst, Ovum Research
