SoftwareONE Taps Enghouse Interactive Communications Center for Microsoft Skype for Business Contact Center

Partnership Addresses Global Demand for Native Microsoft Skype for Business Solutions on Premises and in Private Cloud Deployments

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Sep 28, 2016) - Today from Microsoft Ignite 2016, Enghouse Interactive announced that SoftwareONE has selected Enghouse Interactive Communications Center (CC) as the omni-channel contact center platform for its new Skype for Business on premises and Managed Private Cloud services.

"Partnering with Enghouse Interactive is a strategic imperative for SoftwareONE to address customer demand, globally, for interaction solutions that are native to Skype for Business and suited for both on-premise and hybrid deployments," said SoftwareONE Global Director, Technology Services, Sean Nicholson.

Utilizing UCMA to natively integrate with Skype for Business, Enghouse Interactive delivers a user experience that extracts the advantages of unified communications into the contact center for improved service that is scalable, extensible and reliable. Communications Center is part of Enghouse Interactive's extensive range of solutions for Microsoft Skype for Business, including Attendant Console, Contact Center, Quality Management, Mobile IVR and Real-time Speech Analytics, to help organizations improve communications, productivity, and efficiency.

"With over 400 customers using its contact center products deployed in Skype for Business, totaling more than 10,000 active seats," added Nicholson, "Enghouse Interactive has the track record, global presence and well-deserved reputation as a leader and enabling advocate within the Microsoft Skype for Business Partner Community. We are excited about the myriad opportunities this partnership creates for SoftwareONE to provide customers with a premier contact center solution to help realize maximum returns from their Skype for Business investments."

Earlier this year, SoftwareONE acquired House of Lync, a Microsoft Neptune partner, to expand and support client demand for Microsoft's Skype for Business. Integrating House of Lync's industry-leading voice service offerings into SoftwareONE's technology and managed services portfolio offered immediate scalability of Microsoft's Skype for Business and related services to its clients, extending the opportunity to adopt next-generation Microsoft Unified Communications solutions.

"SoftwareONE is an elite solutions provider whose success as a Microsoft Partner is marked by numerous awards recognizing its commitment to operational excellence," said Ernie Wallerstein, president, Americas, Enghouse Interactive. "We are honored to work with a team whose vision and roadmap aligns with Enghouse Interactive."

Enghouse Interactive will showcase its new Attendant Console for Skype for Business Cloud PBX in James Skay's Skype for Business session at Microsoft Ignite on Friday, September 30th at 9am.
