Mitel Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications for Fourth Consecutive Year

OTTAWA, July 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (NASDAQ:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a global leader in enterprise communications, has been acknowledged as a Leader for the fourth consecutive year in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications.

In the Gartner July 2017 report, recently published, Gartner notes, "It is important for organizations that invest in premises-centric UC technology that they have a clear migration path toward cloud services with partners that are commercially and operationally viable."

As demand for flexible and cost-effective solutions increases, Mitel is drawing from its deep experience to ensure customers can easily migrate to the cloud. Mitel's MiCollab and MiTeam offer a full suite of collaboration applications available across deployment models and provide a consistent user experience from any device. MiTeam, a context-aware, collaborative workspace, is wholly-derived from the cloud, so hybrid deployments seamlessly integrate. The company is also cloud-enabling businesses with existing infrastructure from Mitel or other vendors through its new CloudLink capability, and investing in an application integration strategy to fuel the development of vertical-specific productivity applications.

"The availability of cloud-based solutions unlocks significant opportunities to increase productivity and reduce costs," said Torre Bookout, President of Americas Region, Mitel User Group. "Communications infrastructure is no longer something to view as ‘plumbing,' it has the potential to deliver a strategic competitive advantage."

"More and more businesses are prioritizing digital transformation and want to move to the future, but need to do so in a way that leverages their existing investments," said Rich McBee, Mitel CEO. "Mitel is helping them do that while giving them advanced, high-value collaboration tools to enhance business processes, accelerate productivity and drive even greater collaboration."
