Improved business workflow and better mobile connectivity is being promised
BroadSoft has integrated its unified communication software as a service (UCaaS) technology with Microsoft Office 365. BroadSoft BroadWorks, BroadCloud and UC-One unified communication and collaboration solutions are now compatible with Office 365.
The integration gives joint customers the capability to enhance their communication, business workflow and mobile productivity, said BroadSoft.
“BroadSoft’s integration is a great example of how partners can build on the new Office 365 platform to better serve the unique needs of our mutual customers,” said Steve Guggenheimer, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Developer eXperience & Evangelism (DX) group. “BroadSoft’s innovative business communications solutions are empowering Office 365 customers to become even more productive, wherever they are.”
Customers are able to leverage BroadSoft’s cloud PBX and UC-One capabilities from their Microsoft Office 365 desktop applications, including cloud-based calling, to any telephone in the world. Users can also click-to-call any phone number in emails, documents, databases, address books and on web pages from within Office 365 applications with carrier-class quality and reliability.
“With Microsoft Office 365’s significant and growing commercial installed base, these users represent an attractive market opportunity for BroadSoft and service providers,” said Michael Tessler, president and chief executive officer, BroadSoft.
“We believe that the BroadSoft Microsoft Office 365 hosted-PBX integration offers service providers a proven carrier-class and differentiated solution that enhances customers’ desktop productivity and leverages existing software investments.”
