Unified Business Messaging

Unified Business Messaging

AST provides reliable, robust, scalable, and secure multiprotocol Unified Business Messaging solutions that can manage wide range of business messaging requirements with full automation and integration with backend systems.

With an integrated Unified Messaging solution business information is available via different media such as email, fax, telex, phone, SMS or MMS. Individuals can access this information via different devices while in the office, on the road or anywhere their business takes them. As a result, accessing information from various sources such as a computer, fax, or cell phone and searching for the appropriate communications channel is quicker and it can be smoothly integrated into an employee's normal work environment – e.g. in their MS Outlook or Lotus Notes mailbox.

The unified system ensures that business critical information is delivered to your company's employees efficiently and quickly. You will profit from considerably lower administration costs, motivated staff and a weekly workload reduction in the area of 30 -120 minutes per employee (Source: Intel study). Furthermore, double broadcasts are avoided, telephone costs reduced (VoIP), response times shortened and communications can be tracked.
