07-06-2006

SAI, a leading developer of call accounting software solutions, announced that its Sierra Gold Virtual Telemanagement System (VTS) is compliant with Avaya Communications Manager 3.1, an industry-leading IP telephony application.

El Dorado Hills, CA - El Dorado Hills, CA - July 6, 2006 - SAI, a leading developer of call accounting software solutions, today announced that its Sierra Gold Virtual Telemanagement System (VTS) is compliant with key IP telephony solutions from Avaya (NYSE:AV), a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services.

 

Sierra Gold VTS, available as both an on-site and service solution, helps enterprises reduce telecom expenses, optimize telecom networks, improve employee productivity and improve the management of equipment, services and vendors. The application now is compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Communications Manager 3.1, an industry-leading IP telephony application.

 

"Compliance testing by Avaya confirms the interoperability of Sierra Gold VTS and demonstrates our commitment to providing call accounting solutions that meet the needs of a broad range of businesses," says David L. Schmidt, president of SAI. "Sierra Gold VTS users can be assured they are using a product that enhances their ability to incorporate new technology by minimizing setup and configuration requirements, that is easier to use after deployment, and that enables them to get more out of their communications infrastructure."

 

SAI is a member of the Avaya DeveloperConnection Program — an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company’s investment in its network.

 

As a member of the program, SAI is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, N.J. There a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant. Doing so ensures businesses can confidently add best-in-breed capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure – speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.

 

"By offering compliance testing to the many innovative companies like SAI who are members of our DeveloperConnection program, Avaya promotes fully interoperable solutions that help businesses unleash powerful new possibilities," said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya. "They are able to use Intelligent Communications to connect employees and customers to information from wherever they are, over whatever device they have available – getting more out of their multivendor network and delivering new value to their bottom line."
