Mitel Responds to Increasing Demand for Cloud-Based Hospitality Solutions

Leading Technology Providers Turn to Deep Mitel Hospitality Expertise and Best
Path to Cloud to Improve the Hotel Guest Experience, Save Money and Simplify

LOS ANGELES, June 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HITEC Conference -- Mitel®
(Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a global provider of business communications
solutions, is helping some of the largest brands in the hospitality industry
migrate to the cloud with Mitel's cloud-based hospitality solutions. With
unmatched industry expertise, a dedicated hospitality partner program
supporting some the best known hotel brands in the world, and the best path to
the cloud, Mitel is the natural technology choice for service providers,
channel partners, and hotels looking to take advantage of cloud solutions to
improve customer experience, and streamline operations.

Recognizing the benefits of cloud communications early and working with DCI's
Mitel enabled VCore solution, South Florida hotel management company Menin
Hospitality has already made the move.

"We saw an obvious opportunity to leverage the cloud and take advantage of the
latest communications advances to efficiently run our business and deliver the
very best solutions to our guests," said Jared Galbut, Managing Principal,
Menin Hospitality. "Mitel and DCI have been our technology partners for
several years and their ability to seamlessly migrate us to a cloud solution
has given us the flexibility, speed-of-deployment and confidence to move to
cloud right out of the gate."

Mitel hospitality partner Pinnacle 360 Networks™, has been providing hotels a
comprehensive range of telecommunications solutions for over two decades and
now serves 500,000 guestrooms in hotels of all sizes.

"Lots of people talk about cloud hosting but you have to be prudent, and
unless you have all the security and flexibility required, there is always
some risk in moving to an unknown space," said David Dorough, President of
Pinnacle. "Mitel knows the communications needs of the hospitality industry as
well as we do, and their expertise in cloud communications makes them a
trusted advisor to us and our customers, providing that prudent pathway to the
cost savings and capability benefits available with cloud-based solutions."

Mitel has a specialized hospitality partner program designed to work with
technology and service providers to support the unique communications needs of
the hospitality industry. Channel partners certified under Mitel's Hospitality
Specialist Partner Program work closely with Mitel's dedicated team to
collaborate on opportunities and ensure that Mitel deployments around the
world consistently meet the brand standards and deliver outstanding guest
experience expected by the best known hotel brands in the world.

"We understand that in the hotel industry, delivering an outstanding customer
experience, including a consistent and best in class communications experience
that meets both brand standards and business needs, is the key to customer
satisfaction and loyalty," said Jeff Nolan, Mitel's vice president of vertical
business development in the Americas. "Building and maintaining strong
partnerships is one of Mitel's core values, we are committed to helping our
hospitality partners and clients achieve their business objectives and plans."
