Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering innovative solutions in enterprise mobility, today announced that it has been selected, along with joint-Avaya FMC customer Anthony Marano Company, to present at the International Alliance of Avaya Users, Inc., (InAAU) 2009 International Conference, being held in Orlando May 17–21.
Anthony Marano Company CTO Chris Nowak and Agito Networks Chief Marketing Officer Pejman Roshan will jointly present “A Customer Case Study on Extending Avaya Enterprise Communications to Mobile Workers, Anywhere!” on May 18 from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm.
“Agito Networks and Anthony Marano Company will discuss how Anthony Marano Company works with Avaya and Agito to keep its mobile workforce connected, delivering timely service to the many customers buying its fresh produce,” said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya. “By working with innovative DevConnect members like Agito Networks, Avaya is able to expand the options companies like Anthony Marano Company have to integrate communications into, and enhance, their business operations.”
Located near downtown Chicago, Anthony Marano Company serves the Midwest with fine fresh produce from its state-of-the-art distribution center. The 400,000 square foot facility contains 73 docks to receive and ship more than 1,400 types of fresh produce. With its key buyers and sales staff mobile inside and outside the facilities, it needed a means to keep them connected to the critical Avaya unified communications capabilities that ensure its buyers and sales staff are connected to customers at all times. According to Nowak, a missed call could easily cost the company thousands of dollars.
Avaya’s 8710 provides a highly flexible system addressing Anthony Marano Company’s demanding telephony needs, including high call capacity. Now, extending the Avaya capabilities to mobile users with Agito’s RoamAnywhere Mobility Router, Anthony Marano Company staff members stay in even more immediate in touch with customers.
Agito Networks is a Gold-level 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-level member of the Avaya DevConnect program, Agito has been working closely with Avaya since before the company launched to deliver compliance-tested Unified Communications solutions to joint customers,” said Roshan. “Joint customers such as Anthony Marano Company benefit from Avaya’s market-leading mid-call control features delivered to users’ handsets via RoamAnywhere, enabling mobile users to be more accessible and productive, while reducing enterprise telecommunications costs. We are pleased to jointly present their success story.”
