Aastra have a plan for delivering UC that will deliver real benefits, rather than the 'Fantasy UC' being offered by many others .... article Aastra’s “overlay” strategy, which allows Aastra’s productivity applications to run on top of customers’ legacy equipment. Aastra’s “Immediate productivity without immediate replacement” philosophy allows customers to migrate at their own pace with minimal up-front capital outlay. This provides investment protection and assurances for customers of the companies that have been acquired, and is a prime reason why many of Aastra’s customers have been using their products for over 20 years.

Aastra France are conducting a series of surveys on Collaborative Unified Communications to identify the current take up, and the drivers and obstacles. We think the results are similar to what you would expect if you undertook the study in the UK.

The survey results are published in the portal.
