Effective communication among employees contributes to the growth of a business. It not only improves team building but also increases innovation, productivity, and efficiency. Strong communication enables employees to better understand particular tasks, goals, and general performance expectations. This understanding, in turn, minimizes the risk of mistakes and reduces the likelihood of confusion amongst employees. For over a century, Avaya (NYSE: AVYA) has been building open, converged, and innovative solutions to enhance and simplify communications for customers and collaboration among employees—in the cloud, on-premise, or a hybrid of both in over 175 countries. Avaya’s highly professional planning, support, and management services teams help optimize solutions, for highly reliable and efficient deployments. Today, more than 6,600 global companiestrust Avaya to power their customer experiences and over 90 percent of the Fortune 100 companies and 144 million people worldwide rely on Avaya to power their mission-critical solutions every day.
To enable a transformative, people-centric engagement, the company provides the Avaya Aura Platform—a set of seamless components that mesh together to provide comprehensive unified communications and customer experience solutions for effective business. It allows organizations to integrate video and voice into any application on any device to engage employees in productive communication. An essential part of the Avaya Aura platform Avaya Intelligent Xperiences (IX) Workplace gives clients’ employees a single app for calling, messaging, meetings, and team collaboration—all with the same ease of use they get from their personal apps. This cloud-based app gives employees a voice (literally) and makes collaboration as frictionless as possible, ensuring clear and reliable calling with scalable and secure communications that reduce risk, increase availability, and improve efficiency.
For instance, Montana state information technology services division (SITSD) approached Avaya to replace the state’s legacy equipment—dating back to the 1980s—with a cost-efficient, secure, modernized, and centralized communications system that could support the next-gen needs of end-users and citizens. Avaya IX Workplace offered an authentic digital experience to the end-userswith seamless, personalized communication, and collaboration regardless of location, device, circumstance, or user preference. Avaya, in partnership with 911 Secure, helped the state support E911 to enhance customer service. This cloud-based app offered a full scope of unified communications (UC) support (phone, chat, SMS, video, screen-sharing) to drive the best business and citizen outcomes. “The application goes on your mobile device and mirrors the environment of your desk phone. This way, when you get called out to go to a meeting, you can take that phone call with you. If you’re out in the field, you can take that phone call back to your desk and keep working. It saves a lot of time and money, and above all helps us better serve and protect,” extols Chirico. Now, around 75 percent of 911 calls come from cell phone networks that help emergency responders protect those callers and save lives. Avaya facilitates Montana SITSD to eliminate $168,000 in recurring annual costs for 911 infrastructure and $50,000 per month in network costs.
