Mitel completes acquisition of ShoreTel
With this addition, Mitel has accelerated its move-to-the-cloud strategy, shifting into the #2 market share position for UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) globally as customers worldwide look for cloud and cloud-capable solutions to digitally transform their businesses.
Consistent with Mitel's vision of providing customers with seamless communications and collaboration, a design philosophy of always providing customers a technology path to the future, and a corporate commitment to ensuring business continuity, Mitel and ShoreTel customers and partners can continue to count on the same cloud and on-site solutions they always have.
Mitel will provide ongoing service and support for all products throughout their lifecycles. Customers and partners will be notified and updated in advance of all product announcements.
"Digital transformation is rapidly changing business models in every industry and every corner of the globe, opening the door to disruptive opportunities for companies to grow and compete.
"For businesses, moving to a cloud communications and collaboration system inside their own organizations is a natural first step on their digital transformation journey," said Rich McBee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mitel. ■
