SaskTel Selects Mitel MiVoice Office for New Business Communications Solution
Supports Booming Small Business Market in Saskatchewan
REGINA, Saskatchewan and OTTAWA, Jan. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SaskTel has
partnered with Mitel (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW) to provide MiVoice Office to its
business customers across Saskatchewan. Designed for small and medium-sized
businesses, MiVoice Office is an out-of-the-box communications platform that
enables businesses to improve customer service and boost productivity while
reducing business costs.
The MiVoice Office solution has been popular with early customers and is now
being rolled out broadly to SaskTel's business customer base. The highly
scalable solution supports from two up to 250 employees and more through
networking across multiple sites. SaskTel offers local and long-distance
services with its MiVoice Office package.
"SaskTel is focused on providing complete solutions to our customers and with
the extraordinary growth in small businesses in the province, we now have a
solution that is easy to deploy and support, but can still provide features
that can help them reduce costs, increase productivity, and improve customer
service," said Stacey Sandison, SaskTel's Chief Marketing Officer. "We are
confident customers will appreciate this product's unique balance of
simplicity and rich business functionality."
Saskatchewan's Small and Medium Business Boom
Saskatchewan's economy is dominated by small business, fueled by continued
strength in the agriculture and potash sectors, as well as a significant oil
and gas industry.More than 98% of companies in Saskatchewan employ fewer than
50 staff. MiVoice Office was designed to address the similar requirements
small businesses share with larger enterprises, while addressing the
incapacity of smaller operations to maintain a full IT or engineering team.
"We work very closely with our partners such as SaskTel to ensure our
solutions align with their evolving requirements," said Dave Johnson,
marketing manager for Business Communications at Mitel. "We continue to drive
to reduce complexity and cost in our business communications solutions while
adding more intuitive features, especially in mobility support which is so
critical to enterprises today."
MiVoice Office supports the entire workforce with solutions for mobile
employees and teleworkers, along with 'twinning' and 'hand-off' features that
allow employees to get every call and switch between devices effortlessly. It
has built-in productivity enhancements that empower organizations to add in
new functionality as their business grows without requiring a new platform.
