With CX-E, SDSU received not only an upgraded voice application solution but also an extensive list of new mobility and business process integration features. Unified messaging was on top of SDSU’s list, but the campus needed a solution that could integrate with their existing Google™ Gmail™ system. SDSU’s hybrid cloud approach to implementing UC was not a problem for AVST as CX-E was designed to deliver unified messaging to any email system (whether on-premise or in the cloud). “We were very impressed with CX-E’s flexibility to integrate with our Google Gmail email system and make messages accessible through mobile devices or a web client.

While basic features like Octel TUI emulation and robust reporting were very important, the key for the City of Baltimore was the ability to transition to VoIP (CX-E supports over 400+ telephony integrations). This transition was imperative to the city’s future growth plans. Today, CX-E supports over 5,000 users and handles 120,000 calls per month for the city, with plenty of room for further growth. With CX-E’s robust automated attendant, the city created hundreds of menu trees to transfer calls to the right departments.

When Mack initiated an evaluation of solutions to replace the university’s Octel system, Avaya, AVST and Interactive Intelligence were included in the discovery process. A number of key factors played into the decisionmaking. First, UW needed a solution that could easily integrate with its existing Avaya IP and digital telephony systems, as well as deliver unified messaging to its mixed email landscape — Google Gmail, Microsoft Exchange, and Office 365 in the future.

Waukesha County relied on their 36 port Octel VMX 300 for their voicemail and auto attendant requirements since 1991. While the Octel system had been very reliable, age had caught up with it making replacement parts difficult to get, creating high maintenance costs and causing intermittent connectivity issues for administrators trying to manage the system. Waukesha County averages 119,000 calls per month and supports over 20 departments, so they needed a new messaging solution that would keep their community connected 24 x 7. One of the biggest concerns facing Allen Mundt, IT Infrastructure Administrator for Waukesha County, was that the new system would need to provide existing call processing and voicemail functionality and be extremely reliable. In addition, it must integrate with the County’s current Centrex telephony system and support their future transition to IP telephony.
