Avaya IP Office 4.0

This software platform gives SMBs the ability to access advanced, IP-based communications to improve productivity, customer service, and any business process. Using SIP-based trunking, it provides companies with cheaper call services from service providers, which can cut calling costs in half. There are two software flavours: the standard edition is designed for very small businesses and serves up to 32 users; the professional edition offers enhanced mobility, multi-site networking and customer service intelligence and scales up to 270 users. The software acts as an SIP gateway, whether the SMB has digital, analogue or IP phones. It introduces new remote diagnostic tools, and adds multi-site hot-desking capabilities so employees can log into any phone at any of their company's networked locations and have calls and voice messages follow them. Together, the new IP Office software and communications server (IP Office 500) deliver a solution enabling SMBs to buy only what they need, then add users or functionality via software licenses as required. The new IP Office 500 communications server supports telephony, voice messaging, and a complete customer service suite.
