Datapulse, a Nortel (News - Alert) Developer Partner and Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, has announced that company has achieved Voice Specialisation within the Microsoft Unified Communications Competency.
Datapulse (News - Alert) earned this designation after completing the competency testing and a rigorous technical readiness program that includes specific staffing requirements and an internal deployment of the complete Microsoft (News - Alert) unified communications offering. It has even demonstrated its ability in OCS R2 deployment with the infrastructure, integration and software skills to deliver great ROI and cost savings.
Alex Black (News - Alert), chief technical officer at Datapulse, said that the company specializes in developing and providing cutting edge telephony and unified communications solutions that help public and private sector organisations improve person to person communication and cut costs.
“As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner that has achieved the Unified Communications (News - Alert) Competency Voice specialisation, our customers are assured they are hiring a qualified expert to deploy Microsoft's latest unified communications voice technologies that can be stand alone or integrated with Nortel telephony,” Black said in a statement.
The new status allows Datapulse to deploy Microsoft unified communications technologies such as Microsoft Exchange Server Unified Messaging and Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS) 2007, including VoIP and audio, video, and Web-conferencing.
Ian Andrews, voice technology partner account manager for Microsoft, agreed
"Datapulse is a great example of a Microsoft partner building upon existing skills in legacy business telecommunications to innovate and introduce new capabilities that expand their businesses with Microsoft's Unified Communications open software platform,” Andrews said in a statement.
Datapulse was recently in news for signing a four-year global framework agreement with BT to supply products, services and support. The new contract covers all of BT’s major business divisions, and will expand the company’s existing range of Datapulse solutions as well as provide the flexibility to add new applications and geographies.
