During the 2012 Enterprise Connect (News - Alert) conference, Esna Technologies announced its Office-LinX Cloud Connect edition software completed its beta release toward the end of 2011, and is now available for purchase.
The Office-LinX Cloud Connect has the ability to smoothly integrate the Cisco Unity Connection with cloud-based groupware applications like Google Apps and VMware Zimbra (News - Alert). It also works with other solutions like Novell GroupWise and Lotus Notes, equipping businesses from within these applications with easy-to-use message handling controls.
“We are pleased with the results of the beta release for Office-LinX Cloud Connect and have already begun to deploy in wide release,” said Davide Petramala, EVP of Sales for Esnatech. “Our customers who are already using Office-LinX Cloud Connect, including higher education institutions, state and local government agencies and large commercial enterprises, have given us great feedback on its ease of use, robust feature set and seamless integration with cloud- and premise-based productivity solutions.”
Key features of the Office-LinX Cloud Connect edition include convenience, as it allows users to read, listen, respond and manage messages from their native email client on their desktop, web interface or mobile device; Single Inbox, where voice messages in Cisco Unity Connection are synchronized in Google Gmail, VMware Zimbra, Lotus Notes and Novell (News - Alert) GroupWise; Security that offers secure and private message controls supported in Gmail, Zimbra, Notes and GroupWise; and Easy administration by providing automated provisioning of Cisco (News - Alert) Unity Connection users with easy-to-use configuration wizards.
Scott Lingle, IT Director for Eagle County, Colorado said “Office-LinX Cloud Connect helped us solve our Cisco Unity Connection voice mail integration challenges during Eagle County's conversion to Google (News - Alert) Gmail".
“As more organizations move their email to the cloud, the need to connect their existing phone system with cloud applications like Google Gmail has never been greater,” said Tom Dawes, VP Sales Engineering of Sentinel Technologies. “Office-LinX Cloud Connect bridges the gap between Cisco Unity Connection and Google Apps, and allows us to provide our customers a turn-key solution that is quick and easy to deploy.”
The Office-LinX Cloud Connect also offers complete bi-directional synchronization of messages, message waiting indicators, read/unread message status synchronization as well as contact resolution.
