BT announced the availability of BT Onevoice, a new converged communication platform, in the United States on Tuesday, which includes support for Microsoft Lync 2010.
The company claims that the new platform, which combines Microsoft's Lync 2010 with its own global voice and video services, will greatly benefit its customers within the country with the “innovative suite of collaboration tools” it brings along.
BT also said that the inclusion of Microsoft Lync will help customers gain access to Microsoft's modern instant messaging, telephony, teleconferencing and telepresence software in a highly secured, and fully managed environment.
"Our customers have benefited from our long-term relationship with Microsoft, and the addition of Lync to our Onevoice platform here in the U.S. now gives them additional value,” said Kim McMann, president, U.S. and Canada, BT Global Services, on PR Newswire.
“By bringing these innovations to our customers, we are reinforcing BT's ability to position telephony services as true applications and deliver high quality global solutions with predictable and flexible commercial packages."
