Oct. 16, 2007 BT Lynx today announced that it has released its Unified Communications solutions portfolio, which work with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, Microsoft Office Communicator 2007, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Microsoft Office Live Meeting, Microsoft RoundTable and IP/PBX systems to provide workers with a familiar interface that will deliver real time messaging, voice and conferencing to the desktop and mobile devices. BT Lynx has a different view to most when it comes to unified communications. Unified communications shouldn’t be viewed as a single product, but as a series of solutions that when brought together help an organization to unify its communications infrastructure. Each organization has its own unique communications requirements and starts from a different technology platform. Typically it can be expensive to throw out a company’s existing infrastructure and start with a clean environment. Our approach is to look at each organization’s requirement, their current infrastructure and the benefits that can be achieved from deploying the solutions. Coupled with our consultant’s extensive knowledge ensures that our customers can be confident that they are deploying a cost effective solution that meets the needs of their business both today and as they move into the future. Microsoft Unified Communications Launch Page 2 ”We very rarely come across a green field site, every organization has a significant investment in its current communications infrastructure” said Karen Dallyn, Microsoft Partner Manager at BT Lynx. “By taking a consultative approach our consultants can specify, design and deploy unified communications solutions tailored to meet our individual customer needs.” “BT Lynx takes advantage of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, Microsoft Office Communicator 2007, Exchange Server 2007, and Microsoft Office Live Meeting, giving customers significant communications benefits,” said Dag Cummings, partner account manager, Unified Communications Group at Microsoft Corp. “Microsoft is excited to work with BT Lynx to improve our customers’ experience and help foster better collaboration and productivity.” About BT Lynx Technology BT Lynx is one of the UK’s leading providers of IT solutions and services to the public and private sector, offering world class consulting, technology and outsourcing.
