Founded in 1847 as a telegraph company, Siemens has gone through many transformations in communications. The German conglomerate, which has been public since 1897, established Siemens Communications Systems in 1978 to focus on information and communication technology (ICT). In late 1998, the communications division was refocused on developing Internet-based network technologies. To aid with the development, Siemens acquired American companies Castle Networks Inc and Argon Networks Inc. In 2006, Siemens Communications split into two divisions, one of which merged with Nokia. The other became Siemens Enterprise Communications and aimed to develop end-to-end communications solutions. Seven years later, Siemens Enterprise Communications was re-branded as Unify. In 2015, two years after the re-branding, Unify was purchased by Atos, an IT services company. Although Unify retains its Siemens heritage in its name and technology, the company is no longer affiliated with Siemens.
Unify is focused on unified collaboration and communication software. Circuit, an application released by Unify in 2014, enables business collaboration through a virtual conference room. As an application, Circuit can be installed on any device and works on laptops, tablets and mobile phones. The service also provides content storage with a contextual search. Circuit works in tandem with other Unify services such as OpenScape, an enterprise VoIP solution. OpenScape can support from 100 to 500,000 users with product derivations such as OpenScape UC, OpenScape Enterprise Express and OpenScape 4000. A selection of different desk phones and wireless phones are also sold under the OpenScape name. Unify also has services for contact centers, known as OpenScape Contact Center Agile and Enterprise. These services allow contact centers to route customer inquiries, manage calling records, adjust agent workflow and manage campaign strategies. For those that do not have a physical contact center, there is the OpenScape Cloud Contact Center, which integrates with multiple CRM options.
Although Unify has only been a separate company since 2013, it has already started to collect awards for leadership and excellence. In late 2013, Unify received the Frost and Sullivan Market Leadership Award, which is presented to the company that captures the largest market share within its industry. More recently, a Bulgarian Unify Shared Services Center won the Shared Service Center of the Year Award. To win the award, Unify defeated teams from powerhouses like Coca-Cola, Cargill, and AIG. Unify continues to expand its reach. In early 2017, the U.S. Department of Defense added Unify to its approved products.
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.
