Damovo UK, the enterprise ICT solutions and service provider, and Agito Networks, the company delivering innovative solutions in enterprise mobility, have announced a partnership agreement to deliver the latest fixed mobile convergence (FMC) and mobile unified communications (UC) capabilities to enterprise customers.
With smartphones increasingly replacing the office desk phone as a primary business tool, many organisations are now faced with growing mobile costs. FMC combines fixed and mobile telephony, allowing users to access telephony features and other applications from a single device operating across the GSM and WiFi spectrum. This not only significantly reduces mobile call costs but also provides a wide range of other productivity and efficiency benefits too, as users are always reachable and content can be delivered to the most appropriate device, according to individual needs and enterprise policies.
Under the terms of the agreement, Damovo will integrate Agito Network’s award-winning RoamAnywhere Mobility Router product as part of its overall enterprise FMC solution offering. Damovo’s offering solves the key mobility challenges that today’s enterprises are facing, including: poor in-building mobile coverage, escalating mobile call costs, lack of IT control and visibility over mobile usage and lack of integration between the enterprise PBX and mobile devices.
By utilising existing WLAN networks and extending enterprise PBX and UC functionality onto dual mode handsets (smartphones), productivity can improve and mobile costs can be significantly reduced by routing calls over the WLAN network and allowing calls to seamlessly transition between WLAN and mobile networks.
Paul Butcher, managing director at Damovo UK, said: “The current economic climate is forcing a number of organisations to re-evaluate their mobile policies and costs, which is significantly strengthening the business case for FMC. By partnering with Agito Networks we are now providing enterprise customers with an outstanding leading edge FMC solution which delivers excellent returns in both in terms of pure mobile call cost savings and business efficiency improvements.”
Paul Donovan, VP EMEA at Agito Networks, added: “We are very pleased to be partnering with Damovo, as it has a long heritage in the PBX market and great capabilities in delivering mobile solutions to enterprise clients. This partnership continues our ongoing strategy of working with a number of key partners in different territories to distribute and implement the next generation of FMC using our RoamAnywhere solution.”
