Today UCA Technology Limited (UCATL) announced that the UC clients that it develops "Work with Skype for Business".

UCATL develops UC clients that integrate Lync with several UC platforms, currently most platforms with SIP, and with control of the desk phone with Avaya, Broadsoft and ShoreTel.  

Tony Parish, CEO of UCATL commented “We have almost 10 years experience in developing these apps with the acquisition of the IP of Iscoord AG last October.  With that acquisition we gained the source code with well over $1Million of R&D over the last 10 years, and a dedicated team of developers that are just focused on the clients.  The clients are built in such a way that we have a very stable core code, and connectors that can be easily changed should manufacturers such as Microsoft alter their SDK’s, or the way they deliver API’s.  That means we are fast to market with a stable product that just works.  Orders lately include one of the “Big 4” accountancy firms, with proof of concepts currently under way with on of the US’s largest banks, and one of the World’s largest consultancy firms”.

UCA launches UCA Lync Client for ShoreTel

This week marks the launch of the UCA Lync Client for ShoreTel. The result of over $1m of R&D the client integrates the ShoreTel platform with Lync. 

Some highlights are that we don't require gateways, RCC (Microsoft are dropping this in any case) or Enterprise and Plus CALs potentially saving $246 per user. Our development uses the official Microsoft client SDK to integrate, and has two modes of operation, CTI mode where we control the users ShoreTel handset, or SIP/Softphone mode where we act as a soft client on the PC. The client works with all versions of Lync client and server, namely fully supporting Lync 2010, 2013 and Office 365.

The product is now available to partners on a global basis. See us at booth 9 at the up coming ShoreTel conference in Orlando in April or please contact us.

UCA Acquires Lync Integration Software 
to Capitalise on Global Demand

London, 4th October 2014: 
The Unified Communications Alliance (UCA), the global partnership of accredited Microsoft Lync integrators, today announced the acquisition of software and intellectual property for the ‘UCA Lync Client’ developed by Iscoord AG, the Zurich based comms software specialist.

The acquisition gives the UCA control over a solution that provides simpler, more cost effective integration of Microsoft Lync features with existing Avaya Aura telecoms infrastructure. The deal also includes the employment of two key Iscoord personnel to provide technical and customer support in a full market launch planned by the UCA over the coming months.

UCA Lync Client v3.0, released this week, allows integration of Lync’s agile collaboration features with the reliability of the Avaya Aura communications platform, to enhance the user experience, cut the cost of Lync licensing and prolong return on the original Avaya investment.

Requiring only a Standard Microsoft Client Access Licence (CAL), the UCA Lync Client allows deployment of Lync voice and conferencing without the cost of additional Enterprise and Plus CALs, cutting total cost of ownership by as much as 85%

Tony Parish, CEO of UCA, explains the background to the purchase:

"This acquisition marks the fulfilment of our vision for a Lync integration solution, first envisaged in 2007 when deploying its forerunner, Microsoft OCS. Since then we've watched Lync evolve into the most exciting unified communications solution for years."

"Many businesses think likewise and have already implemented instant messaging and presence features. But going the next step to voice isn't so easy, particularly when dealing with a complex global infrastructure. It's not cheap either. The additional cost of Lync licensing for voice is difficult to swallow for those many businesses with only partial return on investment from an existing system." 

Tony Parish goes on to summarise how UCA Lync Client removes these barriers to Lync adoption:

"Lync voice and conferencing requires 'Enterprise' and 'Plus' CALs and these cost approximately US$246 per user. The UCA Lync Client needs only a Standard Microsoft CAL, so the cost drops to just $35 per user and the customer doesn't lose any of the award-winning Avaya functionality.”

"Also, UCA Lync Client is deployed at the desktop without impact on communications infrastructure. This simplifies implementation enormously for multi-national businesses with complex multi-vendor, multi-device environments," 

"Typically, taking into account savings on licence fees, installation and maintenance, UCA Lync Client can reduce total cost of ownership by some 85%."

A development roadmap of future UCA Lync Client features will be published this year, and will include other communications vendors to be supported.  After Avaya, the next agreed connector is currently under testing for ShoreTel, whom currently don’t have any integration of their own.
