Unified communications rollouts can be time-consuming and expensive, which can mean big trouble for government organizations, but they don’t have to be that way. Overly-complex UC systems can bog down vital processes, slowing down government agencies to a point of inefficiency, but that can all be averted with ShoreTel.

ShoreTel’s integrated IP-based UC solution is built from scratch, making it built for IP alone with powerful end-to-end functionality. Additionally, the ShoreTel solution’s distributed architecture, in addition to its N+1 redundancy and failover capabilities, provides availability exceeding today’s five-nine’s requirements. All administrative functions are consolidated into a single browser-based interface, so administrators don’t need to use multiple tools.

This means agencies using ShoreTel’s UC solution have a dedicated system that will stay up and work at optimum efficiency at all times, just like a government should.
