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:    

  • Mobile 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.
  • Team 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.
  • Helpdesk 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.
  • Virtual 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.
  • Xpert 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.
  • Customer 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."

The amplifyTEAMS Now! packages are available now globally from Siemens Enterprise Communications.
