Enriched communications between coworkers shortening the time necessary for a call

What is our primary use case?

We have a Communication Manager cluster with almost 200 phones and 150 softphones (Jabber). All call handling is done with this solution. We have it integrated with Active Directory. This solution was added to the Unity solution for voice mail integrated with Office 365. The Expressway C & E solution was also incorporated for the registration of softphones (Jabber) from the Internet in a very simple way for end users. Finally, we have the connection to the PSTN through a gateway with SIP trunk.

Pros and Cons

  • "We use Extension Mobility and Jabber a lot with mobile remote access. In addition to video calls with Jabber, this greatly enriched communications between coworkers."
  • "An improvement option could be to incorporate the Voicea solution with Communication Manager, allowing it to make a translation between different languages automatically in a conversation."

Seamless integration for phones, messaging, and networking

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use is communication between users as well as inbound and outbound calls for the organization. Also included is IM & Presence for the users.

How has it helped my organization?

Having a single system including the routers and switches all from the same system gives ease of use. Using the phones was seamless and provided several features the previous system did not have.

What is most valuable?

Using Jabber for IM & P, as well as phone control, was the most valuable. The Click to dial feature was one of the most important features for the customer.

What needs improvement?

Some features take a lot of steps to configure, so having areas where a few clicks can configure a feature for a user would be nice.
