Unimax Eliminates the Cost of Telecom Provisioning With New Automated On and Off-Boarding Solutions

Significantly Reduce or Eliminate the High Cost of Telecom Provisioning and De-Provisioning for New and Departing Employees

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Sep 21, 2011) - Unimax Systems Corporation®, a leading provider of telecom self-service and automated administration software, today announced technology for automating an enterprise's single or multi-vendor telecom on and off-boarding process.

The technology is aimed at reducing or eliminating the high cost associated with provisioning and de-provisioning telecom assets (phones, voicemail, etc.) when employees join or leave an organization. Industry analysts agree that it costs as much as $250 to on or off-board a single employee. Because enterprises generally experience a large amount of employee turnover, these costs add up quickly and form a significant portion of the telecom budget.

Unimax's Automated On and Off-Boarding solutions transfer HR data into telecom systems where phones and voice mailboxes are automatically created and fully configured. This fully automated process sets literally hundreds of PBX and voice mail options without manual entry, redundancy, or error.

"The demand to reduce telecom expense by fully automating time intensive tasks such as employee on and off-boarding has never been higher," said Phil Moen, Unimax President and CEO. "The total number of tasks included in a typical enterprise on or off-boarding process numbers over one hundred. Our technology replaces these manual tasks with a fully automated process which is triggered by a human resources system, Active Directory, or other enterprise database. The automated process instantly provisions the appropriate telecom assets and equipment. The expense reduction is immediate and measurable."

In addition to significantly reducing telecom administrative expense, Unimax's Automated On and Off-Boarding solutions improve telecom security, dramatically reduce the time spent on provisioning, and improve internal service levels. Unimax's Automated On and Off-Boarding is compatible with leading telephone, messaging, and directory applications from Avaya/Nortel, AVST, Cisco, Microsoft, and others.
