Last week, Mitel announced an agreement to purchase ShoreTel for $530 million and to merge the two companies.

This will help swcomms deliver its cloud UC strategy working with the second-largest business in the unified communications as a service (UCaaS) segment.

Mitel has the scale and technical capability to develop the ShoreTel product and swcomms will be able to take advantage of this investment as one of ShoreTel's largest UK partners.

Businesses are moving to the cloud at a rapid pace. The combination of Mitel and ShoreTel creates a new market leader with a differentiated strategy and solution.

There is a clear migration path so that should our customers will not be left behind or have to abandon their existing investment to cloud-enable their organisation.

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
