HANNOVER, Germany, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --CeBIT-- Delivering on its
vision to enable customers to unlock untapped potential and value in improved
team performance, Siemens Enterprise Communications today announced a unique
solution offering – the first in a broad series of service and solution
packages – designed to accelerate customer adoption of truly unified
communications practices.

The family of amplifyTEAMS Now! packages are affordable, quick to deploy
solutions to help businesses dramatically enhance communication. The packages
enable businesses to quickly tackle the priorities that will have the biggest
impact now, while providing the best practices that will support the business
for years to come. They also provide customers with a variety of options as
they roadmap their approach to unified communications, with the assurance that
targeted solution approaches now will have investment protection as the
packages ultimately help build customers toward a more robust UC roadmap, at
the pace that meets their unique requirements.

The amplifyTEAMS Now! packages are designed to help businesses improve
employee communications, simplify access to relevant information, remove the
geographical boundaries of teams and make mobility in the enterprise a
reality. The packages combine the most impactful components of Siemens
Enterprise Communications' industry-leading Unified Communications portfolio
to create low-risk, high-impact packages that deliver fast results. The
initial packages include:

  oMobile Worker Starter Pack – Designed to free workers from their desk, or
    even the office, OpenScape Mobility increases productivity, speeds up
    business processes, and reduces costs.
  oTeam Productivity Accelerator – Enables virtual teams to enhance
    productivity and collaboration by sharing ideas and information easily,
    from the office or on the road, helping to accomplish more in less time.
  oHelpdesk Booster – Allows technical support staff to see a user's screen
    from wherever they are in the world, or customer service representatives
    to share a customer's desktop and annotate on screen, using OpenScape
    Secure Advisor.
  oVirtual Coach – Designed to allow online collaboration across distance in
    real time, OpenScape Instant Meeting lets everyone in your meeting share
    documents, applications, and white boards, increasing productivity,
    reducing travel, and saving you money.
  oXpert First Trade Accelerator – A powerful software solution for traders,
    OpenScape Xpert enables trading rooms and floors to manage virtually
    unlimited calls in parallel on a phone-like device rather than one call at
    a time.
  oCustomer Engagement Continuity – OpenScape Cloud Contact Center enables
    contact centers to operate more efficiently by ensuring business
    continuity, supporting seasonal demand and home workers, and enabling
    home-based out-of-hours agents as if in the office,

Siemens Enterprise Communications' amplifyTEAMS vision is to deliver fully
integrated communications solutions that synchronize technologies, harmonize
the user experience, weave communications directly into the way businesses
operate and empower employees and teams.

"Team performance is largely an untapped business value, and we've introduced
the amplifyTEAMS Now! packages to quickly and affordably provide customers
with the tools and deployment options to dramatically improve team
collaboration," said Hamid Akhavan, CEO of Siemens Enterprise Communications.
"With these packages, customers can address their individual communication
priorities immediately with solutions that will provide real business benefit
for years to come."
