Road warriors and teleworkers can enjoy the same intuitive communications management from a remote PC or laptop using the UC Express Softphone. When remotely connected to the MCD via a secure network connection, mobile users can make and receive calls as though they were inside the corporate network.
UC Express provides out-of-the-box integration with Outlook, including search-and-dial Outlook contacts from the telephony toolbar, auto open a contact record based on incoming caller line ID, and creating a new Outlook task from an incoming call. By tightly integrating with Outlook, UC Express ensures that businesses maximize the ROI of their existing IT investments as they deploy UC solutions. Building on the integration with Outlook, UC Express allows users to access, search and dial corporate contacts from Microsoft Active Directory® or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directories. Additionally, users can perform a Windows desktop search to locate documents, e-mails, and corresponding records based on the incoming caller ID – either automatically or at the click of a button. By integrating widely-used applications with a single access point for all communications needs, UC Express helps drive productivity improvements, while enhancing responsiveness to customers, suppliers and partners.
UC Express is designed to allow small- and medium-sized businesses to take advantage of unified communication solutions without the need for an applications server, thereby simplifying implementation and maintenance, while reducing the overall solution cost. With UC Express or UC Express Softphone, users can leverage the built-in applications interface of their Mitel IP phone or softphone to interoperate with productivity tools such as Outlook. This maximizes their investment in Mitel and helps transform their business processes to create a more efficient work environment.
