Avaya says the portal improves productivity, user control and business continuity by consolidating communications applications and directories into a single user interface that can be accessed and managed from any PC or MAC.
“The Avaya one-X Portal is a highly cost-effective unified communications solution that simplifies advanced communications for workers while easing management,” said Eileen Rudden, vice president and general manager, Unified Communications, Avaya.
“The Portal eliminates the need to deploy multiple communications applications on users’ desktops and increases their ability to access all their business communications capabilities from any Internet-connected computer.”
"In the increasingly virtual workplace, users need to know that co-workers, clients and partners can reach them anytime, anywhere. At the same time, IT is faced with the challenge of decreasing costs and management complexity," says Melanie Turek, Principal Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "Simple unified communications that integrate presence, conferencing and collaboration are critical to business success--and employees must have access to those applications from anywhere, whenever they need them."
