Microsoft Certifies Unimax as a Skype for Business IT Pro Tools Partner

Unimax’s 2nd Nature Skype for Business Migration, Provisioning and Management Product Receives Microsoft IT Pro Tools Certification.

MINNEAPOLIS, September 26, 2016 – Unimax®, a leading provider of Unified Communications Management Software, today announced that it has achieved certification as a Microsoft IT Pro Tools Partner for its 2nd Nature® UC migration and management product. This latest certification is in the area of User and Policy Provisioning, builds on Unimax’s existing Microsoft Communications Competency Certification and strengthens the company’s ability to offer migration and management tools to Skype for Business partners and customers.

The IT Pro Tools program is designed to empower IT professionals with partner solutions that are compatible with and enhance the Skype for Business tool experience. IT Pro Tools certified partners and solutions make it easier to deploy and manage Skype for Business.

“Unimax’s certification as an IT Pro Tools Partner represents a significant opportunity for Microsoft’s Skype for Business partners and customers.” said Phil Moen, Unimax President and CEO. “Our IT Pro Tools certification will enable these partners and customers with the ability to leverage our 25 plus years of communications system management experience while realizing measurable operational efficiencies. For example, Unimax’s 2nd Nature product enables telecommunications and UC teams to unify their related voice systems (e.g. Skype for Business, Avaya, Cisco, Legacy Nortel, AVST and others) with a single pane of glass administration interface. 2nd Nature also provides powerful migration capabilities. Organizations moving from legacy telecom and voice systems to Skype for Business can significantly reduce the risk, expense and complexity of their migration project with 2nd Nature. 2nd Nature also offers advanced functionality for provisioning (including automated provisioning), Phone number and DID management (without spreadsheets or scripts) and much more.”

“We would like to welcome Unimax and 2nd Nature to the IT Pro Tools Program.” said Siunie Sutjahjo, Microsoft Senior Product Manager for Skype for Business. “Adding Unimax to the exclusive group of IT Pro Tools partners will greatly benefit our Skype for Business partners and customers. Unimax’s 2nd Nature product will greatly reduce the overhead associated with provisioning and migrating to on premise Skype for Business and provide a full-featured set of tools for ongoing provisioning and management.”

Unimax will be demonstrating its Skype for Business UC Management solutions at the Microsoft Ignite conference in Atlanta, GA from September 26-29. Visit them in booth 569.
