PBX vendor Mitel has joined other industry leaders at the worldwide Microsoft Unified Communications Launch 2007 in San Francisco. Mitel announced it will use the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 platform including its call management capabilities for a future generation of solutions.
Mitel has a long-standing commitment to build on the Microsoft platform and is extending that with Office Communications Server 2007. Microsoft and Mitel share a long-term vision of software-powered communications. With the announced availability of Office Communications Server 2007, Mitel will feature its unified communications solutions with Microsoft to provide new and existing customers, including over 100,000 users already addressed by the Mitel unified communications solution that integrates with the Microsoft software, a paced, easy and rewarding migration roadmap with a seamless software upgrade.
Mitel’s vision that mission critical voice communications-based applications must seamlessly integrate with other business solutions to enhance the user experience and the effectiveness of “in the moment” interactions has underpinned its relationship with Microsoft. Together, the companies are facilitating the rapid integration of solutions that enable customers to evolve their communications environment and solve common business challenges such as dispersed teams, disjointed communications, and complicated collaboration efforts in a global environment.
“Mitel was early to the unified communications table, first with real-time collaboration and continues as one of Microsoft’s partners with Office Communications Server 2007,” said Gurdeep Singh Pal, corporate vice president, Unified Communications Group, at Microsoft. “Together, we will continue to demonstrate the value of Mitel’s solutions that integrate with Microsoft’s solutions to help customers streamline communications between people and organizations, regardless of medium, modality, platform, device or location.”
