SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ShoreTel® (NASDAQ: SHOR), the leading provider of brilliantly simple unified communications platforms, including business phone systems, applications, and mobile UC solutions, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named ShoreTel Sky Mobility as a recipient of the 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.
ShoreTel Sky Mobility extends the business VoIP and unified communications (UC) applications that companies love to the smartphone. Users are able to leverage a single converged device for both business and personal communications, and access deskphone and UC capabilities on their smartphone without having to learn a new interface. In addition to offering users a dual persona, ensuring easy separation of personal and business identities on a single mobile device, ShoreTel Sky Mobility automatically and securely selects the best available network – Wi-Fi or cellular – without any action by the user. The mobile VoIP solution is available to ShoreTel Sky clients for a monthly fee per user.
"It used to be that most work was done by people sitting at desks in office buildings," said Keith Nealon, president of ShoreTel's Cloud Division. "Now we work from home, airplanes, hotels and coffee shops. Old assumptions about work are being challenged and new tools for productivity and collaboration are emerging. Our hosted PBX platform puts the intelligence of the phone system in the cloud, and with ShoreTel Sky Mobility that intelligence is in the palm of your hand, wherever you are. It gives our customers the ease of using the device that is already in their pocket and gives the enterprise a way to reduce costs, while maintaining a consistent corporate identity and caller experience."
"It is with pleasure that we recognize ShoreTel with a Product of the Year Award. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that ShoreTel Sky Mobility displays quality and innovation while providing solutions to real business communications challenges," stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "I would like to congratulate the team at ShoreTel for their commitment to advancing IP communication technologies."
2012 Product of the Year winners are published in the January/February 2013 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the authority in IP communication since 1998™.
