(PRWEB UK) 5 July 2013
Unified Communications manufacturer ShoreTel has set the pace in the industry once again with the first enterprise-grade iPhone and iPad docking station in the world, and multi award-winning reseller Solar Communications is ready to begin installing the product in the UK.
This new technology adds to Solar Communications extensive line of solutions and services for modernising business operations and keeping colleagues and clients in the loop in an increasingly flexible workplace. With Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) the latest trend in progressive businesses, and all firms doing what they can to slash expenditure and boost productivity, Solar are preparing for huge demand for the ShoreTel Dock.
Using the device, employees can easily transform iPhones and iPads into desk phones, integrating cutting edge mobile technology with enterprise communication systems. In this way, the benefits of a business-grade unified communications network and the widely-praised advantages of Apple's devices are integrated in a way that has never been achieved before.
When used in conjunction with ShoreTel Mobility and conferencing applications, Apple users can tap straight into instant messaging, conferencing, voice and location-aware presence within the business network. What's more, the system requires only one power adapter, creating a Virtual Office that is easy to access no matter where you are. Not only is it easy for workers to stay in touch with the office, but it's also simple for the office to keep up with remote workers, as extension numbers will remain the same regardless of where the employee is. The device also keeps Apple products fully charged so employees never lose connection while working remotely or travelling between clients.
Solar Communications Jonathan Moran commented: "The BYOD concept has really exploded onto the modern business scene and we've seen massive take-up of our unified communications solutions as a result. The ShoreTel Dock really is what everyone has been waiting for; it's a true integration of Apple software and enterprise networks - perfect for companies practising BYOD."
"We're anticipating quite a run on this product so we have been preparing to provide stock quickly and easily to existing and new clients over the past few months. Already there is a lot of interest from businesses looking to upgrade, especially in sectors where it is important to stay on the cutting edge," he added.
Earlier in 2013, Solar Communications received ShoreTel's Outstanding Customer Service Award for the fifth year running, reaffirming the success of the companies' long-running partnership. Since 2008, Solar has been the sole recipient of ShoreTel's European Partner of the Year annual award, making it officially the best ShoreTel reseller in Europe.
The ShoreTel Dock is now available through Solar Communications and can be provided in isolation or as part of a larger unified communications strategy.
