Siemens Enterprise Communications has announced the launch of the HiPath OpenOffice ME, an IP-based, unified communications toolset designed specifically for enterprises of 20-150 users. Features include intuitive presence-aware management and drag-and-drop conferencing.
The system has been engineered to be installed in just a few hours, with no additional devices, applications or accessories for channel partners to stock, purchase and install, the company said.
For SMBs and their users, HiPath OpenOffice ME unifies communications to solve problems of inefficient communication like phone-tag and the efforts needed to set up multipart conference calls, said the company. Its features include:
Presence capabilities (controlled availability, checking others voice mail with permission, instant messaging).
Conference management (drag-and-drop conference management, Call Me! Automated call scheduling to bring a caller into a conference, file sharing).
Microsoft Outlook plug-in (use of HiPath OpenOffice within Outlook, single mailbox for e-mails, voice mails and faxes, pop-up call alerts).
Call functionality (Call Me! Reverse dialing feature for mobile or home workers, call journal to track contacts).
The HiPath OpenOffice ME platform is available through Siemens channel partners. The HiPath OpenOffice ME platform is available in the United Kingdom in January, and in the United States in February.
