Mitel has made some significant acquisitions in the recent past to put itself in a position of great strength in the contact center space. These major moves, including the acquisition of Oaisys, followed by Toshiba’s telecommunications business, and most recently, purchasing ShoreTel, have greatly expanded Mitel’s capabilities. There are also, however, some downstream technical and cost-related challenges (and potential advantages) this consolidation can have on partners and customers that ought to be considered.
Most notably, businesses need to be thinking about how Mitel’s purchases will impact unified communications integrations (active and passive) and interoperability moving ahead, as well as audio capture methods. Each of the three platforms also has unique characteristics, such as OAI integrations into Toshiba, the latest Mitel Connect communication platform, and the recently released version 2 of Mitel’s Secure Recording connector.
As Mitel continues to integrate and evolve these products and potentially acquire future technologies, additional considerations will continue to arise. According to the Ottawa Business Journal (November 2, 2017), Mitel’s CEO is on the lookout for additional takeover targets at revenues continue to rise. All of this activity prompts the need for extreme versatility in a call recorder (especially for compliance driven recording), which has the flexibility necessary to support any and all of these environments.
