Unison™ Expands Beta to Broader SMB Market

Share Article

Leading Linux-based unified communications software can support over 1000 users on a single server. For the first time, unified communications is affordable to SMBs.

As we move beyond 1000 users per Unison server, the enormous benefits of unified communications will be opened to millions of workers worldwide with the most cost-effective offering in today's market.

Unison Technologies (http://www.unison.com) has expanded its beta of the Linux-based unified communications software, Unison™, to the broader small and midsized (SMB) market. After testing, the Unison software can now power more than 1,000 users on a single server. By deploying this complete unified communications solution on one server - including telephony, voicemail, e-mail, instant messaging and groupware - Unison gives SMBs more advanced communications than large corporations, at a much lower cost.

Unison consists of two main elements: Unison Server™, which runs on Linux; and Unison Desktop™, a unified Windows® desktop client, which replaces legacy clients such as Microsoft® Outlook®. By uniting all major communication in one server and client, SMBs no longer need separate, expensive systems such as a PBX, e-mail server, instant messaging server and company directory.

With the new expanded scope of Unison Server, the product can serve companies with over 1000 employees, giving all staff fully-unified communications at a fraction of the cost and complexity of Microsoft's competing unified communications product set.

"Unison is the most powerful, cost-effective and simple way for SMBs to upgrade to unified communications," said Rurik Bradbury, chief marketing officer for Unison Technologies. "As we move beyond 1000 users per Unison server, the enormous benefits of unified communications will be opened to millions of workers worldwide with the most cost-effective offering in today's market."
