Toshiba of Canada Limited & Esna Technologies Inc. partner to deliver mobility, presence and messaging in a single unified application suite

    MARKHAM, ON, Oct. 22 /CNW/ - Toshiba of Canada Limited and Esna
Technologies Inc. today announced a relationship that will deliver a powerful
new unified communications platform for the small to mid size enterprise
market - Telephony Office-LinX UC application suite for the Toshiba's
award-winning Strata(R) CIX(TM) family of IP communication systems. This cost
effective solution integrates Esna Technologies' award winning Telephony
Office-LinX(TM) enterprise edition solution with Toshiba's Strata(R) CIX(TM)
40/100/200/670 and the recently released 1200 IP communications platform. The
Telephony Office-LinX application suite will allow end users to utilize their
wireless or wired telephone to access live calls, email, faxes and voice mail.
Using simple touch-tone commands, users can prompt their messaging and
scheduling utilities to read back information to them anywhere, anytime and
perform real-time modifications. This flexibility enables enterprises to
benefit from increased employee productivity and enhanced responsiveness to
customer inquiries.
    "In the current business landscape it is critical for road-warriors and
mobile workers to be highly responsive to the needs of their customers,
partners and co-workers," said Rick Wierzbowski, Director of Telecommunication
Operations Toshiba of Canada Limited. "With the Strata(R) CIX(TM) IP
communication systems and the Telephony Office-LinX UC application suite,
enterprises can achieve this cost effectively, regardless of their messaging
or scheduling utilities, enabling a compelling return on investment through
productivity and efficiency gains while protecting existing IT investments."
    "Through our relationship with Toshiba of Canada Limited we have the
ability to offer a tightly integrated, enterprise-class unified communication
solution that can meet the needs of virtually any business," said Mohammad
Nezarati, President Esna Technologies. "With the Strata(R) CIX(TM) and
Telephony Office-LinX platform, regardless of what e-mail system or business
application an enterprise uses, or whether they operate in an IP, TDM, or a
hybrid environment, they can deploy a solution that dramatically increases the
productivity of their employees and the satisfaction of their customers."
    The release of the Telephony Office-LinX Unified communication suite
represents the next phase in an overall vision to deliver real-time unified
communications to the enterprise market. This strategy is built on a solid
foundation in Toshiba's Strata(R) CIX(TM) platform. With the release of the
Telephony Office-LinX application suite enterprises now have access to a range
of applications around Presence, messaging and mobility offerings that can
