Robust unified communication solutions including virtual PBXs, predictive dialers and other technologies have been designed to enhance the productivity of businesses while also reducing the costs associated with telephony infrastructure.
The growing popularity of unified communications is reflected in the rise in market share of many vendors. Just recently, Siemens Enterprise (News - Alert) Communications has dramatically increased its global market share as the company’s customer centric approach to delivering unified communications (UC) that address critical business needs has resulted in significant growth and momentum for key product lines.
According to Dell' (News - Alert)Oro Group's 1Q12 Enterprise Telephony Quarterly report, Siemens Enterprise Communications' voice platforms including OpenScape Voice have demonstrated consistent growth in two consecutive quarters while other competitors are continuing to see revenue share loss.
In terms of revenue for the first quarter of 2012, Siemens now holds the second position, moving up from the third place. In addition, the share of total lines shipped also increased over the previous quarter.
"Siemens Enterprise Communications (News - Alert) has put intense focus on deploying great communications solutions that deliver on our promises to solve our customers' problems. This focus is driving real growth and momentum for the company," said Chris Hummel, chief commercial officer for Siemens Enterprise Communications, in a statement.
"These latest analyst reports simply reinforce what we are seeing every day with our customers and partners - our solutions and services beat those of our competitors because we truly unify communications in a way that works in the real world,” Hummel added. “We plan to leverage this momentum and energy in the coming quarters as we continue to see demand from current customers and new prospects for unified communications solutions."
Back in November of last year, findings from Infonetics Research in regards to virtual PBX (News - Alert) phone systems, VoIP gateways, unified communication (UC) applications, and IP phones found that the industry has increased by 5.5 percent in the quarter.
According to the report, global PBX /KTS phone system revenue grew in 3Q11 to $2.15 billion. In addition, when compared to the same quarter in the year prior, the global PBX market is up 6.6 percent, representing a slow yet improved period on a year-over-year basis.
