Avaya IP Office Collaboration Editions

Collaboration options tailored to fit your business needs

When it comes to business collaboration systems, one size does NOT fit all. Every company operates differently and has unique communication needs. The Avaya IP OfficeTM Platform provides you with options, so you can tailor your collaboration system to best fit your business requirements. When IP Office is deployed as an appliance, there are three collaboration editions to choose from that provide communications capabilities from basic to highly sophisticated. Brochure Fact Sheet Collaberation Editions

Basic Edition
Avaya IP Office Basic Edition is the ideal solution for small enterprises to add more productivity with a professional touch. IP Office Basic Edition delivers what small and growing businesses need most in today’s competitive environment with the flexibility, sophistication and expandability of our award-winning IP Office.

• Embedded voicemail – A range of choices that enable staff to stay connected regardless of where they are. Retrieve voicemail messages from the keypad on any telephone or through the context-sensitive display on an Avaya display phone.

• Voicemail to email – Retrieve voice messages via email (voice messages show up just like an email) from a single inbox for fast and efficient access to information.

• Call forwarding – Forward calls to your office directly to your mobile or home phone so calls are never missed, even when out of the office.

• Messaging, conferencing, and more – Automatically receive notification and listen to voice messages when out of the office. Quickly set up ad hoc conference calls with up to 64 participants to enable cost-effective collaboration.

• Automated attendant – Customized caller greetings so key clients receive a personal message and are routed directly to the most appropriate person or team.

Essential Edition
The IP Office Essential Edition is the ideal foundation upon which to build your IP Office solution. Providing the necessary mobility, call handling and routing functionality for IP Office, Essential Edition helps ensure small businesses have the communications tools they need to operate effectively and efficiently.

With capabilities such as one number access, caller ID, dial-by-name, automated attendants, conferencing, voicemail, and more, Essential Edition adds to the functionality of Basic Edition to provide the “must haves” small businesses need to enhance their communications with customers and colleagues and streamline their operations.

• One number access - Provide callers with just the office phone number; have calls ring simultaneously on your mobile phone while still maintaining IP Office voicemail support. This helps reduce missed calls, maintaining a consistent experience for callers.

• Dial by name/extension – Callers can easily reach the person they want to connect with by simply typing the name or extension on their phone keypad.

• Automated-attendants – Program up to 40 automated attendants (maximum 6 simultaneous calls) to handle almost any customer situation. Customize caller greetings so key clients receive a personal message and are routed directly to the most appropriate person or team.

Preferred Edition
IP Office Preferred Edition delivers intelligent communications capabilities that enable staff to collaborate easily and respond quickly to customers and colleagues. With Preferred Edition, businesses can use communications to establish a competitive edge – through intelligent call routing, powerful mobility, intuitive web control, sophisticated messaging, and application integration. IP Office Preferred Edition enhances all the capabilities of Essential Edition and much more.

• Multi-channel contact center – Extends Avaya innovation in contact centers to midsize businesses, giving them the sophisticated capabilities they need in an easy-to-deploy and manage application. Enable your customers to contact you via voice, email, web chat, and fax, and proactively manage the entire customer interaction lifecycle, which can translate into more satisfied customers and a more profitable business.

• Web-based access for office collaboration – Click to make and receive calls; point and click call control; federated presence and IM; control audio conferences; personal, system and corporate directory access, and visual voicemail.

• Rich collaboration for remote workers – Turn home phones (or any other phone) into office phones with the click of a button from a web browser, while maintaining a consistent caller experience. Stay connected to your colleagues with IM, presence, and directory access just as if you were in the office. All with no end-user software to install or maintain.

• Mobile access for office collaboration – Extend office phones to Apple iPhone or Android smartphone. Choose the most effective method using cellular, WiFi, or 3G/4G networks. IM, presence, directory, and conference controls are integrated into the application for complete control. Even better, a simple tap in an email is all it takes to download, install, and configure the application on smartphones.

• Secure “Meet Me” conferencing – Built-in 128-party conferencing means all users can host their own password-protected conference bridge (up to 64-parties per conference) to enhance collaboration. Host a multitude of calls simultaneously. Or, schedule them in advance and let IP Office notify participants automatically.

• Integrated collaboration – Effective communication goes beyond voice. The ability to share and view documents together in real time takes audio conferences to the next level for better communication and faster decision making. The meeting host can even schedule the call and IP Office will remind the users when the meeting is about to start. All of this is possible without the need for additional hardware or external systems.

• Integrate with the applications your business already has – If your company uses Microsoft Lync or Outlook, or uses, then Avaya IP Office can embed communications within them while maintaining the application’s interface and experience.

• Call Recording – Recording of incoming or outgoing calls is built-in. Set the frequency of recorded calls (all calls, a percentage of calls), or push a button to record calls on-demand. Send recordings directly to voice/email mailboxes for forwarding via email.

• Call recording archival and retrieval – Call recording can positively impact customer service and revenue. It can also enable more meaningful training sessions. Calls can be easily and securely retrieved from any PC by searching on any number of fields such as date, time and extension number. They can also be archived to a storage device such as DVD.

No more Advanced Edition in R9.1.
Last available on R9.0

  • Advanced Edition customers will continue to have the 8 ports of TTS and Contact Recorder enabled on their upgraded system.
  • CCR will not function after the upgrade to 9.1.
  • IPOCC: IP Office Contact Center and ACCS: Avaya Contact Center Select are available billable options instead of CCR.

IP Office User Solutions Basic User, Office Worker and Power User

IP Office sales and technical support, is our expertise.
It's always interesting to see what situations or problems that we can help with. Troubleshooting intelligently as to why a system or programmiing is acting the way it is, is how we work. That took a lot of IP Office installation experience and of course, certification.

A lot of the time issues occur is because it is the way a system was programmed. There are so many IP Office programmers out there that are "expert" but really don't know how to program properly. That would entail no errors or programming that actually goes somewhere. A lot of programming we've seen is just all over the place. Time to clean it up.

Sometimes issues aren't really issues and it boils down to the fact that IP Office doesn't always work the way an old PBX works. That's where training comes in. Learning to work with IP Office and the newer technologies will help you grow your business.

Do you have employees / offices in different states or even countries? Do you have remote workers that work from home? It's time to grow and Bishop Computer is here to help.

We do a lot of remote support as well as on site IP Office help in the Chicago and lower Wisconsin areas. Call
847-781-9475 or email for a support appointment.

Buy equipment only from an authorized Avaya Business Partner. Check the Avaya Business Partner Locator Put Chicago in the City area, check the Partner Name Box and type Bishop and enter. There we are. Many people claim to be business partners. It only takes a moment to verify.
