's Patrick Barnard reported that NEC Unified Solutions introduced a new IP-based unified communications system designed for the hospitality industry.
With UNIVERGE Sphericall for Hospitality, Barnard wrote, "hotel operators can improve operations and cut costs while at the same time wowing their guests and earning repeat business."
The 100-percent software-based solution, Barnard wrote, built on NEC’s Sphericall enterprise softswitch platform, delivers a slew of advanced features that will boost staff productivity including unified messaging for email, voicemail and fax; click-to-dial calling and conferencing; and presence with IM and texting capabilities.
The product "integrates out-of-the-box with leading property management systems and third-party hospitality in-room telephone handsets providers -- plus it can be integrated with a broad range of other business applications. Because the system is standards-based, it can sit on industry-standard servers and IP terminals, thus enabling hotels to easily expand and reconfigure the system as they add new locations," he reported.
