The application, called BT’s Finder, runs on Office Communications Server 2007 Release 2 and enables users to determine how and when essential messages reach them. For example, a traveling executive can establish parameters within Finder’s settings to ensure that communications on critical topics are sent to specific team members for handling. In turn, critical e-mails from team members to the executive can be converted from text to speech and sent to the executive’s mobile phone.
“Finder shows how Office Communications Server 2007 R2 functionality can easily be integrated into existing business process automation initiatives to provide cost and time savings for our customers,” said Randy Schrock, BT vice president of corporate alliances, during his presentation with Gurdeep Singh Pall, corporate vice president, Unified Communications Group at Microsoft. “Delivering Microsoft related unified communications services is a key strategy for BT as we help our enterprise customers maximize their return on investment in Microsoft technologies,” Schrock said.
BT’s Finder is one of many applications the company is developing on Microsoft’s OCS 2007 Release 2.
