  • Getting the most out of Avaya IX...

The introduction of Avaya IX Subscription is a game changer for the Industry. For Avaya Enterprise customers, the path to cloud is now clear. With subscription, customers can realize the financial benefits of an OpEx consumption model, while maintaining full control over when and how their cloud migration takes place. Customers can now take full advantage of subscription benefits by paying per user on monthly or annual basis -  enabling predictability, agility and flexibility on their path to cloud. In addition, we are allowing customers to over-subscribe by 20% at no extra fee for the duration of the contract!

Cloud At Your Pace

Consuming Avaya’s Enterprise UC solution via subscription has never been easier. There are three user tiers; Basic UC, Core UC and Power UC, with each subscription packed with all sorts of goodness. Simply pick the number of users for each, and the term and that’s it! The Core UC subscription is where most users will land by default, with an easy transition from the “Core Suite” license which remains available as our most popular perpetual offer. It is important however to look carefully at Power UC option, since we have added something that might surprise you and put a lot of money back in your pocket.  

For each UC subscription, we are making available a cloud-based seat for our new video collaboration solution, Avaya IX Spaces.  Avaya IX Spaces is a cloud-based team collaboration and meeting app. It seamlessly integrates voice, video, tasks, sharing and more into one app you can access anywhere. Spaces helps working teams self-organize and get work done, even if they are widely distributed. The Avaya IX Spaces service is available in over 60 countries around the globe, and every Avaya IX Subscription user in those areas can benefit from Spaces.

As you can see, the Power UC subscription is particularly attractive for many organizations. Think of the money being spent on a separate, stand-alone cloud service for video meetings. Our goal for Avaya IX Spaces is to provide the features that employees use the most at a much lower cost! The financial saving opportunity is tremendous, and don’t be fooled by the big long list of “features” that other services may offer, it simply comes down to understanding what people need and getting it to them at a lower cost. There is no point in paying for every user to have features that are only really required by a few within the organization. Let’s take a deeper look at the different packages below and note that we have what most people use every day.

There is something for everyone with Avaya IX Spaces inside your subscription bundle. It is important that you look closely at Power UC to take cost out of your business by enjoying a bundled in video collaboration solution. Think of users inside your organization that need to host meetings externally giving their clients the ability to join-in from a regular phone line inclusive of groups such as sales or management. For these users, the Power UC subscription gives them all they need at a much lower overall total cost. Perhaps most of your knowledge workers simply need to collaborate in the ‘cloud’, making the Core UC subscription with the Business tier of Spaces a perfect match.  

Contact your Avaya representative today to find out more about Avaya IX Subscription, with cloud video collaboration bundled right in.
