The latest news that ShoreTel is the first UC solution to interoperate with the Skype for SIP offering represents yet another breakthrough in the advancement of UC technologies.
By announcing this interoperability, Skype is kicking off the next phase of its Skype for SIP beta program, and now the nearly 11,000 ShoreTel enterprise customers have the opportunity to register and give it a try.
That means that more than 480 million registered Skype users around the world will be able to call into a ShoreTel UC system at zero cost to them. ShoreTel customers can reach their customers in new ways, taking advantage of a Web site click-to-call button, low global call rates and still enabling their employees to manage calls with the intuitive ShoreTel Call Manager interface.
Just another brilliantly simple innovation that is helping to revolutionize IP-based communications worldwide, and transforming the way we do business.
