Richmond Hill, Ontario (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
Esna Technologies (Esna), a leader in cloud-enabled communication and collaboration software, announced the latest enhancements to its award-winning Esna Cloudlink™ communication solution at Enterprise Connect Orlando, the industry’s premier event for enterprise communications. Esna Cloudlink 5.0 for Cisco, launched in wide release today, provides faster, more effective collaboration by connecting Cisco Unity Connection, Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco HCS, Cisco Business Edition 6000 and Cisco WebEx with the essential cloud-based productivity applications busy professionals use every day, like Salesforce, Jive and Google Apps.
"Esna continues to innovate and extend Cloudlink to deliver capabilities that help people get more work done faster,” said Lee Ho, Esna’s vice president of marketing. “By making it easier to work together on documents, pull a team together for ad-hoc video collaboration, or track these actions in Salesforce, Cloudlink has become an essential productivity tool.”
Esna Cloudlink 5.0 for Cisco lets users escalate easily from the application they are working in to a call or web meeting and automatically track those actions. That means no more jumping in and out of applications to initiate or escalate conversations, and no more time lost to manually logging those activities.
Integration Improves Collaboration
New enhancements to Esna Cloudlink and the Esna iLink for Cisco and Esna i Link for WebEx Chrome extensions make it faster to accomplish the daily tasks that take up so much time.
Instantly start a group chat or WebEx meeting from inside Google Drive and Google Docs with the collaborators associated with that document.
Book and manage Cisco Telepresence rooms and meeting resources from inside Google Calendar just as you would any other meeting.
Access WebEx from within Salesforce and Jive to schedule meetings—even audio-only meetings—quickly and easily.
Retrieve voice messages inside your Jive inbox feed and respond immediately with an integrated dialer web application.
Along with these enhancements, Esna Cloudlink 5.0 continues to offer the broad array of core features Esna customer expect: secure unified messaging and call management capabilities, rich presence, click-to-call, instant messaging and integrated Jabber voice and video, all delivered through an intuitive user interface.
Pricing and Availability
Esna Cloudlink 5.0 is sold as a subscription-based service. The MSRP (per user, per year) begins at $15.00. Esna iLink for Cisco is included with Esna Cloudlink 5.0 or can be purchased separately, without cloud application integration. Cloudlink 5.0 will generally be available beginning March 30th through Esna resellers worldwide and direct from Cisco.
Esna iLink for WebEx is a subscription-based service and requires the Esna iLink for WebEx Chrome extension. You can download and try Esna iLink for WebEx free for 30 days from the Chrome Web Store.
