Members have created a broad array of innovative solutions tested for Avaya compliance, including natural language speech recognition applications, mobile and emergency notification services, specialized computer telephony integration and reporting capabilities, and applications tailored for specific vertical industries.
Through the DevConnect program, the Company noted that Avaya provides companies with a range of technical education, access and support for many Avaya platforms and interfaces, often at no cost to Registered members. Technology Partners receive additional benefits in terms of in-depth, joint compliance testing activities and co-marketing support, based on their alignment with Avaya's strategy and value offered to Avaya customers. DevConnect Technology Partners like DoubleHorn must meet rigorous criteria for customer satisfaction, product support, business operations, marketing and sales.
