Our New Office In Melbourne Is Officially Open!
What an exciting week it’s been for ShoreTel and our partners in the Asia Pacific region. We welcomed our CEO, Don Joos, who travelled to Australia to officially unveil brand new offices in central Melbourne and announce our new cloud-based offering, ShoreTel Hosted Voice.
Our team hosted a launch party on Thursday night, April 7, which was a celebration of these significant milestones with employees and partners who have all helped to get us to where we are today.
Over the last two months, we’ve been creating an open workspace for employees and partners to utilise. We’ve been busy designing a state-of-the-art customer demonstration centre, had carpets laid, walls painted and furniture added. I think the space looks fantastic. But don’t take my word for it – have a look at the photos below:
Our overarching philosophy in selecting and designing the new office space was an emphasis on reducing our carbon footprint and promoting a healthy work life environment. We chose an office with bike racks and showers, and we’re giving a subsidy to employees who choose to buy a bike and give up their parking spot.
It’s not only our new offices that we celebrated last night; we also announced our expanded cloud-play in the region with the availability of ShoreTel Hosted Voice in Australia, a fully managed IP telephony hosted solution. We are thrilled to say that this launch marks the completion of the integration of M5 Networks Australia into ShoreTel and the first phase of product enhancements.
Customer demand for cloud communications is increasing in Australia, across companies of all sizes and verticals, and it’s timely that we have introduced our cloud-based offering in region for partners to deliver enterprise voice telephony in a fully managed environment. Customers can now also deploy ShoreTel 400 series phones for an end-to-end ShoreTel experience.
We’d like to say a huge thank to everyone who joined us at our office opening. It meant a lot to us to celebrate with so many staff and partners to showcase our new workspace that represents our success in this region.
