Mitel & ShoreTel
As many of you have been made aware, Mitel announced last week that they’ve entered into a definitive agreement to purchase ShoreTel. This transaction is projected to finalize in the 3rd quarter of 2017.
We’ve had several customers reach out with questions as to how this affects them with their current ShoreTel system along with prospects curious about how this may affect a future or eminent purchase, all great questions.
We’re providing a document from Mitel concerning several of these questions for you to read through. You can access it here.
In short, we feel this is very positive and exciting news. Between the two companies they will create the 2nd largest Premise/Cloud Manufacturer/Provider in the US giving us a much more robust product set for our customers. And from everything that’s been disclosed so far, all existing ShoreTel products will remain on the same trajectory. Any future changes will allow for the best of both products to be merged together in order to create the best possible products for our customers.
As always, we are happy to address any questions you may have so feel free to reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
