ENP Newswire - 28 January 2014
Release date- 27012014 - London, UK - Aura Alliance (AA), a leading service provider and alliance of Avaya channel partners, today announced that its Aura Alliance Client for IBM Notes and IBM Sametime is compliant with key Collaboration and Unified Communications solutions from Avaya, a global provider of business collaboration and communication software and services.
The Aura Alliance Client helps businesses communicate more effectively and address key business challenges, increase revenues and customer satisfaction while simultaneously reducing both capital and operating expenditures. Aura Alliance Client is a UC software application that seamlessly integrates with IBM Notes and IBM Sametime which offers a fast pay-back due to a cost-effective licensing model and a quick roll-out.
The client delivers a rich UC experience to large organizations, providing enterprise telephony capabilities, presence synchronization with Sametime and instant audio and video conferencing in high definition (HD) without needing a media server or to connect to the legacy company/service provider's MCU server. The application is now compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Aura Communications Manager 6.3 and Avaya Agile Communications Environment 6.2.1.
Aura Alliance is a Technology Partner in the Avaya DevConnect program - an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company's investment in its network.
As a Technology Partner, Aura Alliance is eligible to submit products for compliance testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab. There, a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compatible. Doing so enables businesses to confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure-speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.
'We are delighted to be an Avaya DevConnect Technology Partner. This relationship will allow Aura Alliance to continue to deliver innovative solutions and deliver on performance. Through innovations based on open, standards-based platforms we will be able to help businesses adopt new technology easily and cost-effectively, get more out of their communications infrastructure and efficiently leverage their Avaya investment.'
