ShoreTel® (NASDAQ: SHOR), the leading provider of brilliantly simple
unified communications platforms including
business phone systems, applications and
mobile UC solutions, today announced it has completed development of the technical solution for its hybrid premise-to-cloud offering, and external testing will begin this summer.
In keeping with its commitment to deliver ultimate choice in business communications solutions to customers, ShoreTel is moving into the next phase of its hybrid solution, ShoreTel Connect. Platform development and internal testing are complete, and external testing with customers and reseller partners will commence this summer.
Upon completion of the testing phase and rollout of general availability, customers will have the option to choose premise- or cloud-based UC solutions and applications but also the ability to include the best of both in an integrated solution.
