Wordtext Systems, Unify launch Unified Communications software

MANILA, Oct. 9 (PNA) — Wordtext Systems, Inc. (WSI) and Unify on Friday launched Openscape Business Unified Communications (UC Solution), a software from Germany that allows the efficient communication flow through most gadgets.

Jeffrey Garay, product manager for WSI, said in a statement, “it effectively makes everyone in the organization available for communication through the use of BYOD (bring your own device) such as smart phones, tablets, laptop, and PCs. You can access your email, voice mail, and fax on any device.”

The software will provide a communications platform for a company’s employees at any time and any place.

Unify added it will “accelerate team productivity, improve customer service and dramatically reduce communications costs.”

Garay said the software could provide instant messaging or chat, conduct web-conferences, web collaboration with presentation, file sharing and white boarding.

Unify said OpenScape Business could slash up to 90 percent of conferencing costs and reduce voice call costs by up to 30 percent with voice over IP.

The company added the maintenance for the software is simple and uncomplicated.

For the companies that have other existing systems, the two firms said it could still be used as OpenScape could still work on top of it.

WSI president Juan Chua said, for his part, that “WSI is eager to bring Unify’s OpenScape Business solution to Philippine companies searching for innovative ways to cut communication costs and achieve seamless workforce mobility.”

The two companies have partnered to bring the software to the Philippine market.

Unify managing director Daniel Mountstephen added that they see a lot of potential for the solution in the country, adding “our partnership with WSI simplifies the deployment and delivery of cost-saving enterprise voice and UC across enterprises.”

WSI is a local IT distributor that provides IT solutions and services to businesses.

Meanwhile, Unify is a Munich-based global communications software and services company. It was established out of the engineering DNA of Siemens AG and currently operates in 60 countries around the world. (PNA)
