Minneapolis, MN — Calabrio, Inc., a leading provider of workforce optimization and unified desktop software for IP-based contact centers, today announced that its Calabrio Workforce Management software is compliant with contact center solutions from Avaya, a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services.
Calabrio Workforce Management helps contact centers improve performance, such as reduce abandons, achieve first call resolution and increase customer retention. The application now is compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Call Center.
“Ease of integration is a critical element of our software design approach because businesses shouldn’t have to struggle to implement and support a solution to enjoy the benefits,” said Paul Lidsky, CEO and president of Calabrio. “Avaya certification ensures our common customers the peace of mind that their Calabrio Workforce Management Solution will integrate seamlessly within their existing Avaya environment to help them achieve their business goals.”
Calabrio is a member of the Avaya DevConnect program—an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company’s investment in its network.
As a Gold member of the program, Calabrio is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, N.J. There a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant. Doing so ensures businesses can confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure—speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.
