IceWarp Releases IceWarp UC Server Version 10.3

April 29, 2011

IceWarp, a provider of Unified Communications and Collaborations (UCC) solutions, asserted that its newly unveiled IceWarp Unified Communications (UC) Server version 10.3 offers Communications, Security, Collaboration, Mobility and Data Access – features that are dubbed as the five essential pillars of unified communication.

The company had commissioned the Osterman Research survey that revealed the urgent need for global companies to implement a UC solution to further their business’ reach and counter the rising competition. Those who participated in the survey showed preference to a solution that could deployed within a shorter span of time and cost less in maintenance.

IceWarp claimed that the low cost of ownership of its solution gave it an edge over its competition. The newly released version 10.3 supposedly sets new UC standards for the enterprise as validated by the new Osterman study.

Officials with the company claimed that enterprises are clamoring for a true Unified Communications solution that will support today’s mobile, agile workforce who are actively connecting and collaborating across multiple channels and time zones. IceWarp responds to these needs by virtually eliminating the barrier between a traditional and a mobile office. IceWarp version 10.3 helps organizations of all sizes, from SMBs to global multinationals, to improve their working capital situation by freeing up the resources locked in outdated infrastructure and enabling their mobile workforce to rapidly react to ever-changing global business challenges.

IceWarp Unified Communications Server is combination of servers that provides organizations with the most advanced personal and business communication capability today. It comes packed with an email server, webmail, groupware, instant messaging, SMS text messaging, VoIP and more. Users can install it effortlessly and have it up and running in less than 10 minutes and fully deployed within a matter of hours.

Michael Osterman, president of Osterman Research asserted that the ROI achieved by deployment of Unified Communications solutions is easily recognized: To streamline and manage communications, increase user productivity and efficiency, to enable users to work remotely with the same communication tools they have in the office, and to reduce bottlenecks that thwart the communications pipeline. Despite the reported benefits, enterprises aren’t always comfortable adopting these solutions because of the pain associated with the initial capital investment and the complexity of deployment for typical Unified Communications solutions.
