Stories We Love

David Rollison | February 14, 2018

Valentine’s Day is here and love is in the air. At Spoken Communications HQ we’re on cloud nine after the acquisition announcement at Avaya Engage earlier this month. The warm fuzzy feeling is still alive and well in all of us here at the office, as well as outside our Seattle bubble in the larger communications industry press. As we get ready to take our relationship with Avaya to the next level, we wanted to take a minute on this Valentine’s Day to look back at just a few of the love notes passed back and forth on the internet over the last few weeks:

UC Today outlined how Spoken will play a huge part in the Avaya Cloud Group when they published: Avaya CEO Jim Chirico Announces the Acquisition of Spoken

Then, UC Today wanted to get a better understanding of how Spoken will allow Avaya to address the needs of Enterprise, mid-market and SMBs in Addressing the Spoken Communications Acquisition with Avaya
