Windstream continues to come out swinging with new innovations and integrations – doing its best to leapfrog the field. The news that Windstream will integrate its UCaaS with Slack is a big deal.
It allows Slack to leverage a relationship with a carrier with a huge footprint and customer base. Windstream is now on the cutting edge – integrating with one of the top collaboration players in the market.
As you may recall last April we covered Windstream’s positioning in the market between cablecos and large carriers. This past April we broke the news the company will focus on SD-WAN, UCaaS and the call center.
In June we discussed the company working with Fortinet in the SD-WAN space.
“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.”
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 all this is huge news for the UCaaS space and the Future of Work!
