JOHANNESBURG- June 24, 2014 – We’re proud to announce that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named the ShoreTel Dock and ShoreTel 14.2 as 2014 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award winners.

“I am excited to proclaim ShoreTel as a 2014 recipient of TMC’s Unified Communications Product of the Year Award for their innovative products, the ShoreTel Dock and ShoreTel 14.2,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC. “Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by ShoreTel in their groundbreaking work on these two products.”

The ShoreTel Dock is the first and only business-grade device that transforms the Apple® iPhone®, iPad® and iPad mini into the desk phone for the mobile generation. The ShoreTel Dock merges the benefits of a desk phone (audio quality, always-on power and ergonomic comfort) with the unified communications power of ShoreTel Mobility, delivering instant messaging, directories, buddy presence, extension dialing, web conferencing and more.

There are two models of the ShoreTel Dock available with either an Apple 30 pin connector or an Apple Lightning connector. Each model has an articulating arm that lets users rotate their iPad between portrait and landscape orientations making web browsing as easy as placing a phone call. It works with both Bluetooth and direct connectivity and delivers the best audio quality possible—all while keeping the device charged and ready to go.

ShoreTel 14.2 delivers flexibility for customers, with the ability to mix and match hardware-based and virtual appliances in a single network, all managed using a single web-based management interface. With ShoreTel 14.2, customers can select the UC deployment model that best suits their business and infrastructure needs – virtual, physical or any combination of both. The benefits are immediate – reduced hardware and operational complexity, higher application availability, increased scalability and reliability.
