Siemens Enterprise Communications Group has entered into a five-year partnership with Shared Technologies to provide enterprise customers with best practices for leveraging their existing technology investments, while providing a migration path for the adoption of next-generation unified communications (UC). As part of the agreement, Shared Technologies will offer SEN Group's OpenScape UC Server and suite of applications, as well a supporting services.
The OpenScape portfolio is integral to the SEN Group's OpenPath methodology, which ensures customers can meet their business goals by providing a cost-effective route to UC benefits, regardless of infrastructure. By giving employees UC collaboration tools, organizations can increase productivity, mobility and customer responsiveness, as well as reduce network and conferencing costs.
The SEN Group's OpenScape Voice and OpenScape UC Application are communications solutions that take advantage of industry standards such as SIP and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to help customers reduce costs, ease integration, and extend existing network investments. By leveraging a data center approach, OpenScape voice and UC services can be over-laid in existing IT or telephony environments, eliminating traditional barriers between communications systems by providing unmatched scalability and virtually seamless integrating with other popular enterprise-class solutions and devices.
As part of SEN Group's Go Forward! partner program, Shared Technologies will have access to tailored training and support services, including award-winning marketing tools such as Digital Channel.
