Customers who want to order Esnatech’s Office-LinX Cloudlink unified communications program can now purchase the product through the Avaya (News - Alert) DevConnect Select Product Program.
Office-LinX Cloudlink can be purchased through Avaya and through Avaya’s network of distributors. Additionally, customers can source an Avaya-based communications platform that incorporates functionality from the Esnatech UC program.
Office-LinX Cloudlink is compatible with the Avaya Aura communications platform. Enterprises can easily integrate Avaya Aura with Google (News - Alert) Apps when they incorporate Office-LinX. For example, Office-LinX for Avaya delivers functions like unified messaging with Gmail, presence and status with Google Talk and integrated e-fax with Google Apps.
Esnatech’s flagship UC platform integrates with any existing PBX (News - Alert), voice or mobile communications system to offer a seamless connection to both cloud-based and on-premises programs, including not only Google Apps, but Microsoft Office 365, VMware Zimbra (News - Alert) and Salesforce.com.
Companies can connect smartphones to their corporate phone system when using Office-LinX in addition to having Fixed-to-Mobile convergence for mobile phones, desktop phones and softphones.
By using VMware vSphere, the solution delivers redundancy, scalability and availability.
“[The] Office-LinX solution has already helped hundreds of Avaya customers connect to the cloud,” said Davide Petramala, Esnatech’s executive vice president of Business Development. “Offering Office-LinX Cloudlink Edition through the Avaya SPP makes it even easier for customers to get the rich unified communications and collaboration functionality they want, extending the value of their Avaya investments.”
In addition to the Office-LinX Cloudlink integration with Avaya Aura, Esnatech offers Cloudlink for Cisco, using Cisco’s Jabber SDK to connect Cisco UC Manager and Cisco Unity Connection with both cloud-based and on-premises e-mail systems.
Avaya developed its DevConnect (News - Alert) Select Product Program to develop, market and sell third-party solutions that are compatible with Avaya technology. By offering products like Office-LinX to customers, Avaya helps enterprises to extend their investment in their communications platforms.
The DevConnect Select Product Program is available in the U.S. and Canada, with implementation, maintenance and support provided by Select Product Program companies.
