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.
