Bicom Systems is a small telecommunications company with less than 50 employees headquartered near London. Established in 2003, Bicom Systems integrated open source telephony technology into a complete proprietary package called PBXware. Released one year later in 2004, PBXware is the first open standards turnkey telephony system. Today, PBXware has been expanded to include three different levels of service. As a global company, Bicom Systems has offices in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Canada, France and the United States. In 2014, Bicom Systems expanded its range to include India through a partnership with Santhosh Kumar. Another partnership with Entrust ICT in 2015 allowed Bicom Systems to expand into the Australian market. The company has continued to grow through partnerships and software improvements.
PBXware is Bicom System’s main product line. PBXware is a downloadable software that interfaces with an existing telephony system. It pairs with both VoIP and traditional PSTN technologies to provide an accessory rich interface. Features like conference bridges, call screening, hot desking and IVR auto attendants are included within the package. Users can set their own preferences for call forwarding, overhead paging, remote access, personal IVR, instant recording and more. PBXware also includes Fax over IP (FOIP), which allows the exchange of faxes between two machines connected via the Internet or a traditional phone line. One advantage of PBXware is that it is software based, so it is easy to move between locations. It works with the existing system. A dashboard provides a single page overview of the system, including information on call statistics and running services. Within PBXware, there are three different solutions: Business, Call Center and Multi-Tenant. PBXware is intended to lower costs, increase productivity, and support legacy technology and handsets.
Bicom Systems tracks its achievements through case studies with customers. In 2008, Bicom Systems installed a telephony system for the non-profit Legal Aid Ontario. The office’s 450 staff members were networked via PBXware into a single dial plan. Reduced time and the ability to add on new offices were highlighted by the customer as benefits. Bicom Systems has also worked with NASA at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In six weeks, Bicom Systems delivered a PBXware-based system that allowed the supervisor to monitor 20 conferences concurrently. Systems have been deployed at Airbus Defense and Space, Dell Global, Islamic Relief, Columbia University and others. Although Bicom Systems is not regularly recognized for its innovation and customer service, the case studies demonstrate that the company is developing great solutions for its customers.
About Shoretel Connect
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.
