Easy To Use Means Easy On IT
Unlike other collaboration solutions, which can create heavy support burdens on IT staff, ShoreTel Connect's integrated collaboration tools are intuitive to master, and require no complicated software downloads for participants. With users self-reliant in scheduling, managing, and participating in their audio conferences and online sharing sessions, IT pros are freed up to focus on more strategic, business-building projects. ShoreTel Collaboration enables teams to engage and to share with a single click, without help from IT, and on the devices of their choice – PCs, Macs, iOS, and Android devices. ShoreTel Collaboration takes the hassle out of bringing teams together, and puts the focus on true creative sharing.
Seamless Application Integration
Tight integration with popular business applications such as Microsoft Outlook gives users an equally streamlined experience. Pressing the “Conference” button in the Outlook ribbon transforms a mere calendar appointment into a multimedia work session, automatically creating dial-in and web sharing information. And whether reviewing a spreadsheet or following a presentation, external participants can view the shared desktop over the web without needing to download additional applications or installing plug-ins.
ShoreTel's open APIs encourage feature integration. Rather than silo particular features with standalone interfaces and protocols, ShoreTel brings them together for the most impact: presence AND mobility; instant messaging AND contact center. The result is truly "unified" communications, which powers an uptick in performance and productivity. And integrations with sales and marketing applications like Salesforce, NetSuite and ZenDesk open new avenues to cross-functional collaboration.
