Offers users single-portal access to collaboration tools
Mitel has released a new version of Unified Communicator (UC) Advanced offering, which provides users single-portal access to collaboration tools including deskphone, softphone, mobile devices, visual voice mail, secure instant messaging, presence, audio and web conferencing, desktop video conferencing, document sharing and email.
According to Mitel, the version 3.1 features three key enhancements, web and mobile portal improvements, a new dynamic location client application available for BlackBerry smartphones, and the offering of UC Advanced as a server appliance. UC Advanced web and mobile portals have been enhanced to allow users to work independently of the PC client; view corporate contacts and user and device presence information; view call history and voice mail message details.
UC Advanced Dynamic Location, available for BlackBerry smartphones, allows users to define GPS locations to associate with each Dynamic Status, and changes Dynamic Status based on GPS location or by manual selection. The product equips single interface and capabilities that enable mobility, integration, and efficiency from a single launching point.
In addition, Unified Communicator (UC) Express, a serverless unified communications client that provides productivity enhancements like click-to-dial, incoming caller ID pop-up, PC-based missed calls, and speed calls list, is offered free for Mitel 5000 Communications Platform (CP) customers, the company said.
Stephen Beamish, VP of marketing and business development at Mitel, said: These enhancements to Unified Communicator Advanced meet the growing need for innovative collaboration solutions, and the consistent sales prove once again that Mitel has solved the problem of what enterprises need and continues to show how Mitel leads the way in innovation and feature richness.
