Siemens Enterprise Communications
Simplify Communications
Information technology has revolutionized the way businesses share information and ideas. Today we have more ways to communicate
than ever before, and we’re more mobile than ever before. The challenge for businesses is how to manage those communications, facilitate greater mobility and enhance productivity.
So, what’s the problem? With phones, fax, e-mail, voicemails and instant messaging at our disposal we can end up spending more time
checking messages, chasing contacts and logging calls than actually doing business. Now, there’s a way to easily manage your communications, save money, improve employee satisfaction and your customer’s opinion of you. With HiPath OpenOffice EE from Siemens
Enterprise Communications.
Big ideas
Communication systems are there to make
life easier for your staff, and for your customers. Yet with everyone using different
contact points, office phones and cell
phones at any one time, trying to get the
right message through to the right person
can be frustrating.
The more successful you become, the more
flexibility and space you’ll need to expand
your operations. With this in mind, HiPath
OpenOffice Entry Edition scales to thirty
users and offers the best networking available. So whether you need to support
home workers or staff in satellite offices,
you can rely on HiPath OpenOffice Entry
Edition to offer safe and secure feature-rich
And with increased mobility in the workforce, more time than ever is wasted trying
to access communications remotely: in
fact, a recent end-user survey conducted by
Insignia Research and commissioned by
Siemens found that respondents lost on
average 7.8 hours a month because they
couldn’t access the features and functions
they have in the office, when working off
Let’s put it right
HiPath OpenOffice Entry Edition is a complete Open Communications solution,
designed especially for small businesses,
that can reduce overheads, increase productivity and improve customer service.
Using the latest internet widget technology, HiPath OpenOffice Entry Edition
makes managing your communications
easy. Now tasks that were once time consuming, such as checking voicemail and
logging calls, can be done from your desktop at the click of a mouse.
Thanks to the integrated LAN and WAN
functionality, the HiPath OpenOffice Entry
Edition offers everything that you need to
be mobile – and you also receive all conventional telephony functions that you
expect from Siemens, as well as access to
Internet telephony and integration of
mobile phones.
Now you’re talking
Now available for the first time on small
business systems, HiPath OpenOffice Entry
Edition offers “dual-mode” mobile operation.
When in the office your dual mode handset
will connect directly to your HiPath system
over a wireless network. And should you
move out of your coverage area, HiPath
OpenOffice Entry Edition will automatically
direct calls via your cellular network.
Getting down to business
The newest member of the HiPath
OpenOffice Family, Entry Edition, gives you
the best conventional telephony functions
in connection with the flexibility of VoIP
By bringing together all your communications facilities and integrating your voice
services with your IT infrastructure, you
can run everything from your PC desktop,
instead of managing multiple systems.
Happy staff
HiPath OpenOffice Entry Edition’s graphical interface makes controlling your communications so much easier. And easy
things are a pleasure to use, which means
your staff are more likely to utilize the features and facilities throughout the day.
Converged communications mean that
people can operate effectively from any
location. So now time spent in hotels, cars,
and airports can become productive time.
Happy customers
Valued customers can be sure to get
through to you first time on one number –
a number you can direct to your preferred
device/location. Other customer calls can
be routed efficiently to the people best able
to deal with their requests. And after office
hours, the inbuilt auto attendant and voicemail facility can capture important calls
that would otherwise have been lost.
Happy business
HiPath OpenOffice Entry Edition gives
small businesses access to the latest cost
saving, productivity-enhancing technology
previously only available to large organisations. It speeds up and simplifies daily communication tasks, and lets you get on with
running your business. HiPath OpenOffice
Entry Edition brings together the functionality previously found in different network
devices, making it easier to buy, easier to
install and easier to manage.
Secure networking over the internet, and
access to new internet telephony services
means that your businesses can consolidate their network services – and that
means you can significantly reduce your
communications costs. Meanwhile, dualmode mobility cuts out all those expensive
cell phone calls made in the office.
And of course, happy colleagues and happy
customers means greater productivity, and
