Windstream Enterprise announces major upgrade to UCaaS platform

Enhancements will simplify and streamline features and increase functionality to improve the customer experience

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Windstream Enterprise, a leading provider of advanced network communications, announced the upgrade of the Windstream Enterprise UCaaS Mitel platform, enhancing its value as a solution for businesses seeking an enterprise-class UC solution that integrates voice, multi-media, unified messaging, mobility and other services onto a single, unified platform.

According to Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service, Worldwide, UCaaS capabilities now exceed those available from premises-based UC solutions. While premises-based UC still accounts for about 70 percent of the offerings sold to mid-size and large enterprises, UCaaS providers are expanding their capabilities to meet enterprise service needs. As companies continue to move key business functions to the cloud, UCaaS provides a robust, enterprise-class UC solution that integrates voice, multi-media, unified messaging, mobility and other services on a single unified platform enabling businesses to address multiple needs easily and cost-effectively.

“Businesses of all sizes recognize that digital transformation is essential in a competitive environment. As a company pledged to helping our customers make that transformation, Windstream Enterprise is committed to staying current on the latest trends and technologies, including those from partners who are best-in-breed in their industry,” said Joseph Harding, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Windstream Enterprise and Wholesale. “Mitel is one of those partners, and this major platform upgrade is just one example of their shared commitment to continuously improve their solutions with enhancements that streamline and simplify how customers use UCaaS in their business.”
