In a Q2 report by Synergy Enterprise Voice, ShoreTel (News - Alert), a leading provider of simple IP phone systems with integrated Unified Communications, is leading the IP industry, particularly in the UC desktop deployment, based on Q1 results.
ShoreTel, which continues to be the No. 1 UC desktop vendor, is rapidly gaining market share in the small-to-medium business voice and larger enterprise market centers, according to the report. It is achieving revenue growth and is still regarded as a healthy company, despite the current economic conditions.
"This Q2 2010 Synergy (News - Alert) report validates that our ongoing commitment to product and service excellence continue to meet the communication and collaboration needs of our customers,” said Kevin Gavin (News - Alert), vice president of marketing for ShoreTel, in a statement. “ShoreTel continues to grow and capture market share because of our brilliantly simple approach to sophisticated IP-based communications. As more and more businesses emerge from the downturn, they are recognizing that upgrading their communications infrastructure is the key to prospering in the highly competitive environment ahead, and that ShoreTel can give them the business agility they need."
"ShoreTel continues to successfully execute on its growth strategy in the Enterprise IP Telephony market,” said Jeremy Duke, founder and principal analyst at Synergy Research Group. “In Q2 2010, ShoreTel grew its US revenues faster than any other vendor, faster than Avaya (News - Alert) and four times faster than Cisco. Considering the size of their competitors and the state of the economy, ShoreTel is showing signs of remarkable strength and resiliency."
