As part of a three-year strategic agreement, the companies are adding elements of Avaya’s Unified Communications and Contact Center products to the HP Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C) services portfolio for enterprises. This solution set is to be sold and delivered by HP.
“Organisations face constant change and the decisions they make must be flexible enough to meet future needs – such as unification of real-time communication with Web 2.0 and social media applications,” said Gary M. Budzinski, senior vice president and general manager, Technology Services, HP. “With HP and Avaya, clients can increase the agility of their existing communication architectures and realise the aspiration of unified communications for multivendor interoperability and ultimately save organisational costs.”
“HP and Avaya have highly complementary portfolios that deliver extraordinary benefits to customers, especially when combined with HP’s consulting and IT outsourcing expertise,” said Joel Hackney, senior vice president, Global Sales and Marketing, and president, Field Operations & Avaya Government Solutions, Avaya. “The HP and Avaya relationship enables customers to take out costs and transform their business via the strategic application of communications tools and services in the procurement and management model that best suits a company’s objectives.”
