  • Supports digital and mobile-first fan needs
  • Enables Padres' staff to be connected across disparate locations with flexible, feature-rich collaboration tools
  • Provides Petco Park with advanced communications services to host the 2016 Major League Baseball All-Star Game

Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a global leader in real-time business, cloud and mobile communications, today announced the San Diego Padres have deployed an end-to-end solution for cloud communications. The Padres' cloud rollout signals the expansion of cloud services in the world of sports franchises and comes just in time for the franchise and Petco Park to support the 2016 MLB All-Star Game on July 12.

To meet the needs of the entire San Diego Padres' user base, the Mitel solution connects remote training locations, scouts, and other on-the-go staff members with headquarters-based colleagues, so the entire organization can communicate and collaborate quickly and seamlessly. In addition to improving connectivity throughout the organization, the Mitel solution also enhances the fan experience with personalized contact center software features that let season ticket members connect directly to their dedicated service representative. By unifying communications platforms, Mitel also provides the flexibility and scalability required to handle added demand as the Padres host this year's MLB All-Star game and Petco Park continues to host world-class entertainment.

For fast, simplified communications and collaboration, the Padres' employees now gain new, real-time capabilities via Mitel MiCollab, including productivity-enhancing presence, unified messaging, CRM integration and other tools that allow them to get things done from anywhere. Whether inside Petco Park, at their Arizona or Latin America training facilities or while traveling to scout for new players, every employee has seamless access to the same feature-rich experience.
