Quotes

"As I work with various customers on an array of projects, I greatly value a collaboration solution that helps me stay connected with project decision makers, acts as a single point of truth for edits and ultimately alleviates confusion from multiple communication paths," said Dan Corredor, President and Founder, Asylum-Pipeline, a marketing communications agency. "MiTeam provides an environment that allows me to collaborate outside of my organization, keep track of critical-path project management items and stay instantly engaged from any device."

"Project teams more often than not are made up of people working from multiple locations and geographies, even across businesses and frequently include external partners and constituents," said Jon Brinton, EVP and President, Mitel Cloud Division. "Until recently, they've had to rely on communicating through multiple channels and disparate applications including conference calls, voicemail, email and text, among others. With MiTeam, they can combine and streamline communications for a more simplified, seamless experience and increase productivity with real-time access to team members in a contextual conversation."
