March 09, 2010

Orange Business Services,, a global communications solutions integrator, has announced that it is delivering key elements of NXP Semiconductors BV's unified communication strategy.

Officials with Orange said that the service provided by the company enables NXP to improve multinational team collaboration and speed up workflow at a low cost of ownership and predictable cost per user.

Orange has successfully migrated 15,000 users from a Microsoft Live Communication Server-based service to Managed Microsoft Office Communications Server (Release 2).

'Time to market is critical in our business, and effective collaboration between our global teams makes the difference. Orange Business Services is unifying our communications, giving us an edge in our competitive market”, said Louis Luijten, chief information officer of NXP, in a statement.

Luijten said that on top of that, they are reducing the company’s total cost of ownership. Orange has proven to be a trusted and reliable partner, which is why the company took the decision to outsource the integration of this business critical service to them, said Luijten.

The company looks forward to further expanding its cooperation in the years to come, he added.

NXP Semiconductors provides high performance mixed signal and standard product solutions that leverage its leading RF, analog, power, digital processing and manufacturing expertise.

'Based on our global network services platform and global unified communications expertise, we have proven to NXP in the past that we provide solutions that truly help them find efficiencies and increase business and employee productivity in order to further improve competitiveness in challenging market circumstances,” said Helmut Reisinger, senior vice president Europe, Orange Business Services.

Reisinger said that by delivering a robust unified communications and collaboration service, the company is committed to upholding this trust and to increasing the value of the partnership.

unified communications recently reported that Sybase, Inc., a major player in enterprise and mobile software, and Orange Business Services have entered into a partnership to offer mobile device management as a managed service to enterprises who want to control their mobile assets.

This service is available on any carrier in the world, many mobile devices and numerous operating systems.

In a release, officials with Sybase said that Orange Business Services will leverage the company’s enterprise device management platform to help companies tackle the challenge resulting from the increasing number of mobile workers, devices, applications, and ever-growing heterogeneity of corporate mobile environments.

Orange Business Services will enable enterprises to consolidate their global mobile assets (devices and SIM cards), implement a mobile security policy, deploy all mobile applications and control wireless spending.
