Extends Cisco Unity Connection to cloud and on-premise groupware applications

Esna Technologies (Esnatech), a leader in cloud-enabled unified communications, announced today at the 2012 Enterprise Connect conference the general availability of its Office-LinX™ Cloud Connect edition software, following its successful beta release in late 2011.

Office-LinX Cloud Connect seamlessly integrates Cisco Unity Connection with cloud-based groupware applications such as Google™ Apps and VMware® Zimbra as well as on-premise solutions such as Lotus Notes and Novell GroupWise providing organizations with convenient and easy-to-use message handling controls from within these applications.

“We are pleased with the results of the beta release for Office-LinX Cloud Connect and have already begun to deploy in wide release,” said Davide Petramala, EVP of Sales for Esnatech. “Our customers who are already using Office-LinX Cloud Connect, including higher education institutions, state and local government agencies and large commercial enterprises, have given us great feedback on its ease of use, robust feature set and seamless integration with cloud- and premise-based productivity solutions.”

“Office-LinX Cloud Connect helped us solve our Cisco Unity Connection voice mail integration challenges during Eagle County's conversion to Google Gmail," said Scott Lingle, IT Director for Eagle County, Colorado.

Office-LinX Cloud Connect leverages the Cisco Jabber SDK to integrate with Unity Connection and transforms groupware applications such as Google Apps and VMware Zimbra into a live communication and collaboration hub. Office-LinX Cloud Connect enables full bi-directional synchronization of messages, message waiting indicator (MWI), read/unread message status synchronization and contact resolution.

“As more organizations move their email to the cloud, the need to connect their existing phone system with cloud applications like Google Gmail has never been greater,” said Tom Dawes, VP Sales Engineering of Sentinel Technologies. “Office-LinX Cloud Connect bridges the gap between Cisco Unity Connection and Google Apps, and allows us to provide our customers a turn-key solution that is quick and easy to deploy.”

Sentinel Technologies is one of the leading Cisco network integrators in the U.S. carrying the Cisco Gold Partner and Unified Communications Masters designations. Sentinel is always looking for opportunities to deliver complete and tightly integrated Collaboration Solutions.
