Countdown to Connect: One Platform to Rule them All
At ShoreTel, being Brilliantly Simple isn’t just our motto – it’s a promise. That’s why we’re simplifying our products and services with the upcoming launch of ShoreTel Connect. Two years in the making, it’s the biggest release in company history, involving more than four million lines of new code and a consolidation of our products and services.
So why did we decide we wanted to embark upon such a major undertaking? After all, we have been successful at providing the best of both worlds when it comes to business phone systems -- premises and cloud-based communications.
The answer is the fundamental belief our company was founded on that there is always a better way to communicate in business. With ShoreTel Connect, we’re simplifying our product offerings for cloud and premises into one common platform. What this means for our customers is that they get an easy, single platform for whatever deployment type they choose.
ShoreTel Connect is the only complete unified communications (UC) platform for all deployment types. Other phone vendors offer an array of different products that often require customers to integrate multiple platforms themselves, long installation and upgrade cycles, and extensive user training. Yet ShoreTel integrates the most popular UC features into a single, scalable solution. This eliminates the need to maintain, train and pay for separate communications tools.
Plus, a single platform provides a simple way to access all communication options, no matter if you’re using your personal smartphone, office phone, laptop or office computer. This single platform reduces communication complexity and helps make collaboration between workers seamless and easy. Employees, partners and customers can all share in a dynamic collaboration experience. It’s easy for external contacts to fully participate in the Connect experience through the web collaboration app that automatically opens on their desktops for conferences and desktop sharing.
So if an organization wants a phone system that is onsite, in the cloud, or a mixture of both, they can be assured they will receive a simple, yet powerful user interface for their communications needs with ShoreTel Connect.
