Windstream Enterprise (WE), a leading supplier of advanced network communications, announced that its OfficeSuite UC® and HD meeting applications now integrate with Slack, an industry leader in helping businesses streamline communications and enhance team collaboration. With increasing competition, working in teams has become an essential characteristic of the digital workplace as businesses seek ways to increase creativity, improve productivity and the customer experience, and promote healthy employee relationships.
“The benefits of collaboration within an organization are many and that’s why one of Windstream Enterprise’s top priorities is to meet the needs of our customers by aligning ourselves with best-in-class collaboration tools,” said Austin Herrington, vice president of product management at Windstream Enterprise. “With this integration, customers will be able to extend OfficeSuite UC’s already-robust capabilities to Slack using the app’s native slash commands, thus enabling them to maximize their return on investments in both services.”
Enterprises are increasingly faced with the challenges of email mailbox overloads, attachment restrictions, lack of version control and vulnerability to safety breaches, making collaboration tools a favorable option to get work done. By integrating OfficeSuite UC with Slack, Windstream Enterprise is enabling companies’ employees to connect seamlessly for easy, uninterrupted communication and collaboration. For example, customers can launch an OfficeSuite UC call or virtual meeting from within a Slack channel.
To emphasize the value of purchasing a cloud-based service, Windstream Enterprise is offering OfficeSuite UC and HD Meeting integrations for Slack at no extra cost to new and existing customers.
In addition to OfficeSuite UC and UCaaS/CCaaS offerings, Windstream Enterprise offers its SD-WAN Concierge™, Cloud Connect and industry-leading WiFi services.
