What Can Mitel Offer?
Launched in 1973 and based in Ontario, Canada, telecoms corporation Mitel specialises in providing businesses such as hotels with unified communications solutions. Indeed, it has been operating within the sector for more than three decades, and supplies leading solutions to some of the largest hotel brands around. So it’s very experienced at working on a large scale, and supplies both hosted and self-hosted options.
Its open-systems solutions protect the legacy telephony investment while allowing hotels to benefit from digital and other new applications, including Internet Protocol (IP) devices.
