ShoreTel is a Sunnyvale, California-based telecommunications company that delivers unified communications (UC) and call center technology. The company, which was founded in 1996, has regional offices in the UK, Germany, India, Australia and Spain. Edwin J. Basart and Mike Harrigan, who previously founded Network Computing Devices, set up the organization. Since its inception, ShoreTel has acquired various companies. In 2010, the organization purchased enterprise mobile provider Agito Networks in a deal worth around $11.4 million. In 2012, ShoreTel purchased New York City-based M5 Networks for $146 million — one of the biggest financial acquisitions of that year. The company rebranded M5 Networks’ cloud services as ShoreTel Sky and has since introduced new services under this name, including conference calling and instant messaging. In 2016, ShoreTel acquired Corvisa, a deal which helped them expand their SIP trunking capabilities. ShoreTel changed its name from Shoreline Communications in 2004. In 2013, Don Joos, previously of Avaya, became ShoreTel’s president and chief executive.
ShoreTel is a leader in VoIP communications, with a variety of products for small, medium and large businesses. These include Connect Cloud, which combines UC and VoIP technologies in the cloud. This flexible platform includes popular features like call blocking, call forwarding, and phone alerts. Call centers use this service: they access a dashboard and monitor call activity in real time, assess agent and queue statuses, create reports and share valuable data. Another service, Connect Hybrid, offers businesses a hybrid cloud solution. Users can download applications, includeing CRM and ERP integration apps, which allows companies to track customers and clients for more effective operations. Connect Common UC Platform was launched in 2015, after two years of planning and development. This platform has a single user interface and combines cloud-based and on-premise UC products. Other services include Connect OnSite and Flex Contact Center, a comprehensive solution for call center management. All of these platforms provide users with enhanced disaster recovery, so businesses can access data after an emergency like a storm or a flood, or a security breach.
ShoreTel has won a string of awards over the years. Its ShoreTel Connect service scooped the Unified Communications Product of the Year Award in 2016. The company also won Technology Provider of the Year at the 2016 IT Europa Awards and Best Telecommunication Website at the 2016 Web Awards. Other accolades include Best in Unified Communications and Collaboration at Network World Asia’s Product Excellence Awards, Best Midmarket Solution at the Xcellence Awards and Communication Solutions’ Product of the Year.
About Microsoft Office 365
Microsoft Office 365 CRM is a brand new app, currently being rolled out to Business Premium subscribers at no additional charge. Generally available in early 2017, Microsoft is currently working on full mobile access to the new platform. Already the company has released an app for iOS that includes note taking, mobile scanning for business cards, and meeting information.
Even though this app is new, it is connected with Microsoft Office, and its email client, Outlook. Like other CRM programs, it automates and organizes customer and sales data to streamline marketing and increase revenues. This is a welcome new tool for businesses, and in a format that most are already familiar with, having used the other components of Office. In fact, it is accessed through the “Customer Manager” tab in the Outlook toolbar so that team members can effortlessly add contacts, documents, tasks, events, and conversations to the CRM.
Apart from storing information, the platform also allows users to set up reminders to respond to customer interactions and link tasks with a particular company, contact, or project. Deals can be organized in several different ways, and sharing customer information with a team is made easier with the “Focused List” that hones details for particular emphasis.
Information is automatically gathered from email, the Outlook Calendar, and call logs, and helps with tracking commitments and opportunities by offering up timely details and reminders, and it helps prioritize time with the focused lists that keep everyone aware of the most pressing projects, deals, and customers.
Microsoft already has a full-blown enterprise system in Microsoft Dynamics 365, but it’s geared more toward large businesses, and Office 365 aims to be a lighter and more user-friendly app that small to midsized businesses can use to conduct lead acquisition and tracking, as well as customer outreach without the need to do a lot of duplicative data entry. It is easy to get started using it and companies can move up to Dynamics for deep dive information and customer insights when their business scales to a size where those are needed.
CRM platforms are getting smarter. By automating workflows and using machine learning, organizing and searching for customer data is easier for everyone to use. Advances in machine learning, in addition to business intelligence (BI), will continue to be a focus of this CRM platform and others that need data automation but don’t have an entire sales force to manage customer relationships. No doubt this will grow as businesses look for more efficient and smarter ways to engage their leads, manage communications, and convert them into customers.
COST: Free for users with Office 365 Enterprise or Business Premium plan.
