Many companies are exploring and implementing unified communications. One problem that has faced certain industries though is how to deal with scattered branch offices. Industries like banking, insurance, investing, real estate, and more often have a central headquarters, and several remote branch locations. With no way to bridge the unified communications solution from the headquarters to the branch, the branch offices generally fend for themselves and implement separate communications systems. That leads to a variety of issues related to administration, compliance, costs, etc.
Now there is a simple, cost-effective solution. At VoiceCon 2008 in San Francisco this week, Evangelyze Communications unveiled their new offering- SmartVoIP. Joe Schurman, Founder and CEO of Evangelyze Communications, introduced the solution which integrates Microsoft’s Response Point communications system for small and medium businesses with the more robust Office Communications Server and enterprise class unified communications.
“We are incredibly proud of this achievement and the opportunity that this solution brings to organizations with remote and branch office communications needs. Through the power of VoIP and using our joint collaborative integration service, we are now able to connect offices globally in a scalable manner, leveraging our innovative services and Quintum’s breadth of scalable gateway devices. As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner who has achieved the Unified Communications competency Voice specialization, our customers are assured they are hiring a qualified vendor to deploy Microsoft’s latest unified communications voice technologies,” said Schurman.
