Santa Clara, Calif. – July 1, 2019 - Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE: AVYA), a global leader in solutions to enhance and simplify communications and collaboration, announced today that TMC, a global integrated media company helping clients build communities in print, in person and online, has named the Avaya Device Adapter Snap-in solution as a 2019 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award winner.

“Avaya Device Adapter allows CS1000 customers the ability to leverage existing desktop devices with the benefits of using these devices with Avaya IX Workplace. Avaya IX Workplace is a sleek, unified communications tool that provides you with one-stop access to voice, video, team chat, calendar, meetings and more,” said Mike Kuch, Avaya Senior Director of Product Marketing. “This provides an optimized approach, as the user can keep the phone and features they are used to while also experiencing a true UC client with Avaya IX Workplace on their Windows, Mac, iOS and Android devices. It also provides customers with outstanding investment protection, a core part of Avaya’s solution development philosophy.”

“It gives me great pleasure to honor Avaya as a 2019 recipient of TMC’s Unified Communications Product of the Year Award for their innovative solution, the Avaya Device Adapter Snap-in,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by Avaya in their groundbreaking work on this key innovation of their Avaya IX Workplace UC platform.”

Avaya IX Workplace also enables users to achieve the full benefits of a cloud-based, fully integrated team collaboration environment. You can create and enter team rooms organized by a variety of categories with members both inside and outside of the organization, essentially breaking down the existing boundaries of your communications infrastructure. It supports persistent messaging and team chat, file sharing and task assignment and ad hoc and scheduled meetings, with audio/video conferencing, and screen sharing. And its mobile-first top-of-mind screen provides at-a-glance visibility to everything you need in real time and the ability to respond with a single touch.

Combat Networks is an Avaya customer and a Canadian solutions integrator for enterprise corporate, government and defense infrastructures where security, performance and reliability are key to operating mission-critical communication networks. “ Our early experience using the Avaya Device Adapter has prepared us to help our customers take the same journey,” said Greg Curry, Chief Technology Officer at Combat Networks. “Digital transformation in communication is where we’re all headed. We’re proud to be pioneers in the industry—so we can bring our customers with us.”
