Mitel Unifies Communications for Flemish Environment Agency

Modernizing Communication System Decreases Costs and Increases Mobility and
Collaboration for 1000 Employees

MECHELEN, Belgium, Feb. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL)
(TSX:MNW), a leading provider of cloud and premises based unified
communications software solutions, today announced that the Flemish
Environment Agency (VMM) is rolling out the Mitel Communications Director
(MCD) platform across its thirteen offices. VMM is an agency of the Flemish
Government with a mandate to sustain the environment in Flanders. The
deployment of the new communication system, implemented and managed by Mitel
partner Inia, has been designed to save the government money, simplify
management and enhance communication and collaboration for the agency's 1,000

VMM's upgrade was driven partly in response to growing demand from employees
for tools that provide increased mobility and better collaboration with
colleagues regardless of their location. By replacing its legacy communication
platform with the advanced capabilities of the MCD platform, VMM employees can
more easily and cost effectively work together across the agency.

Wim De Block, VMM's system administrator for the project, commented: "The way
people work has changed a lot over the past several years. Flexibility and
mobility are increasingly becoming critical to communications across our
organization, and will continue to grow. By simply moving our phone calls onto
an internet phone platform, the Mitel solution will enable us to collaborate
more efficiently and also allow us to save on telephony expenses."

Built on Mitel's core communications software platform, MCD delivers a highly
flexible, feature-rich IP telephony system that is scalable and simple to
manage, and responds to IT's demand for streamlined and centralized
communications management. In addition to MCD, VMM will use Mitel Unified
Communicator Advanced and Mitel Collaboration Advanced applications which will
give VMM employees insight in the accessibility and availability of
colleagues, and provides audio conferencing, instant messaging and web
collaboration capabilities.
