IPC’s world-class engineers are some of the first on the planet to have achieved ShoreTel Connect certifications and completed multiple implementations of ShoreTel’s cutting-edge solution.

RICHMOND, Va. — March 2, 2016 — As ShoreTel continues to roll out its Connect platform, including the new ShoreTel Connect ONSITE, CLOUD and HYBRID offerings, IPC has moved quickly to gain leading expertise in this advanced unified communications (UC) technology. Based upon a single software code base, ShoreTel Connect gives users a consistent experience whether it’s deployed onsite or in the cloud. ShoreTel Connect HYBRID Sites enables mix-and-match deployments that create a more flexible UC environment.

“ShoreTel Connect is new, it’s unique, and IPC is one of the few ShoreTel partners with field experience deploying it,” said Jeff Andrews, Executive Vice President, IPC. “About a dozen members of our very talented team have obtained ShoreTel Connect certifications, and more are coming up to speed every day. We are on track to exceed Platinum certification level very soon.”

ShoreTel Connect is a full-featured UC solution that includes IP telephony services, collaboration tools, desk phone and softphone functionality, a desktop client and mobility app, browser-based administration, and more. The intuitive ShoreTel Connect client enables seamless collaboration with one-click simplicity.

As a 12-year ShoreTel partner, IPC has completed more than 1,000 onsite ShoreTel implementations and manages and supports more than 110,000 endpoints through its Network Operations Center. The IPC team has leveraged this experience to design and deploy ShoreTel Connect for a diverse set of customers.
