"The call quality Avaya delivers has been great. We also have the flexibility to use the service on the device that works best for each member of our team. The Mobile Phone Application works great, and we plan for medical providers to use the service with iPads for their day-to-day activities at remote care facilities. The administrative team for our busy community clinic relies on Avaya's desktop phone. Regardless of the device, we've found AvayaLive Connect to be powerful and easy to use."

With AvayaLive Connect, we have the communication tools we need to be more responsive – especially when away from the office. Avaya's mobile phone application keeps team members linked to the company network so we can communicate more effectively and deliver customer service that stands out from the pack."
