LONDON, Sept. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)

Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a leading provider of cloud and premises-based unified communications software solutions, has delivered a telephony solution for Princess Yachts forming one part of an extensive network upgrade and voice solution. The Mitel solution, in collaboration with leading Mitel partner NG Bailey, is enabling over 400 employees at the luxury brand to connect quickly and seamlessly across six locations, driving up productivity levels while streamlining costs.

The Mitel solution provides Princess Yachts with a highly flexible platform that reflects its premium values. By embracing a virtualised solution it has enabled the luxury brand to adopt a modern, future-proof approach to communication and collaboration, using a multi exchange platform to provide connectivity to six of its sites in Plymouth.

The solution has enabled Princess Yachts to put in place an easily scalable IT strategy that will support the expansion of Mitel telephony in the future. Princess Yachts plans to integrate with Mitel's collaboration application, MiCollab, providing real-time access to a host of applications and features for everyone within the organisation, either on or off premise.
