Ready to think outside the box?

phoneCommunications technology is evolving rapidly, allowing us to be connected in more ways than ever, and with less effort. So, why are some of us still dialing in to check voicemail or feeling chained to our desks when we’re expecting a call? And why, in this day and age, do our clients still receive a busy signal when we’re on the other line?

You’ve probably thought about upgrading your phone system at some point, but maybe the idea of having to replace all of the related hardware you’ve invested in sounds expensive and complicated. Well, it’s time to stop feeling boxed in and start thinking outside of the box.

With Avaya IP Office Virtualized Server Edition, you can get the upgrades you want with the savings your business needs. This scalable solution allows users to manage their phone systems through one easy-to-use web interface, with the benefits of centralized management and licensing for all users across multiple locations. And, you can even run the software using your existing hardware or take advantage of Agility’s ONTAP hosted offering.

Not to mention, virtualizing allows you to put multiple servers on one physical device, which means additional savings on hardware and maintenance.
