Jenne Signs Distribution Agreement With Mutare, Enabling Resellers to Complement and Extend Their Unified Communications Offerings, Mutare’s Powerful EVM Plus With giSTT™ Speech to Text Platform Unifies Voicemail With Email, Text Messaging and Instant Messaging, Bringing Convenience and Productivity to All Sized Businesses
AVON, OH–(Marketwire – Feb 21, 2012) – Jenne, Inc., a leading value-added distributor of IP telephony, audio and video conferencing, unified communications, data networking and IT security products, announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement with Mutare, an independent software developer of unified communications, mobility and self-service automation solutions. Under the terms of the agreement, Jenne will distribute Mutare’s complete line of unified messaging, notification and IVR solutions.
Mutare’s EVM Plus with giSTT unifies voicemail with email, text messaging and instant messaging integrating voicemail into a wide variety of communication processes. The solution is able to convert the audio signal of a voicemail into text before sending both the audio and text to a user’s email inbox. This simplifies user access to voicemail messages, and effectively eliminates the need for a call into a centralized voicemail system.
“Mutare’s speech-to-text unified voicemail solution is a perfect complement to our unified communications portfolio,” commented Vince Piccolomini, vice president of logistics and business development, Jenne, Inc. “The company’s powerful software is suitable either as an add on solution to an existing unified communications system or in a new deployment. Either way, this is an excellent opportunity for our VARs to help their customers realize greater efficiency while making their mobile workforces more accessible.”
Mutare’s solution is clientless software installed on a server and can be deployed to complement any major vendor’s unified communications products — including Avaya. Jenne will be supporting the Mutare solution with a dedicated product manager who will serve as a liaison between its technical services and sales associates and Mutare technology specialists. Additionally, Jenne will work with its resellers to introduce them to and train them on the Mutare software so they can identify opportunities and take the solution to their customers.
“Our new relationship with Jenne helps us bring a proven unified communications solution to a much broader audience in the channel,” said Scott Brown, director of sales, at Mutare. “Workers frequently complain about missing messages because of the inconvenience of voicemail systems. With our software, voicemail messages can be retrieved instantly by simply accessing email. They can quickly read or listen to their messages, and respond more quickly to messages they may have otherwise missed.”
