The Mitel 3000 enhances communications of small office / home offices (SoHos) and micro-businesses by managing a complete range of unified voice and data requirements over a single network. Ideal for restaurants, retail, convenience stores, and professional business services such as law firms, insurance agencies, small healthcare facilities, and more, the IP-centric Mitel 3000 communications system easily expands to accommodate up to 52 employees and multiple devices, including credit card terminals and fax machines.

“As IP telephony matures, businesses are looking at new ways to accrue increased business benefits while reducing the overall cost of ownership of their communications solutions,” said Jeff Nolan, vice president of Canadian Sales for Mitel. “It is this demand that makes the Mitel 3000 tremendously appealing to the SoHo and sub-50 market. The Mitel 3000 builds on our leadership in the SMB market providing smaller businesses with rich features and flexible configurations to make communicating with customers and colleagues easy, affordable, and simple to install and use.”

Leading industry research firm InfoTech recently recognized Mitel as the leader of the U.S. SMB IP telephony market in 2007, well ahead of major competitors like Cisco, Avaya and Nortel. In Canada, Mitel holds second place in enterprise IP lines shipped in 2007. Mitel grew eight per cent in the second quarter of 2008, and holds 25 per cent of customers in the sub-400 user category.

The Mitel 3000 features big business communications capabilities such as conferencing, centralized voice mail, and an automated attendant for greeting and routing incoming calls to make communications more efficient and to allow staff to focus on their core business. With simplicity a hallmark of Mitel communications products, management of the Mitel 3000 is easy via a telephone or PC, avoiding the cost of on-site technician to add employee extensions or new devices.
