Mitel Exits Noteworthy 2022 Primed for Innovation, Growth Entering its 50th Year as a Unified Communications Leader

Mitel, a global leader in business communications, is ready for growth as it enters 2023 - the company's 50th year as a unified communications (UC) leader. Mitel achieved significant milestones and collected several prestigious awards during 2022, priming the UC leader for success entering the new year.

"As we enter our 50th year, Mitel's go-to-market approach and portfolio have never been better suited to address the needs of organizations today and tomorrow," said Tarun Loomba, president and CEO of Mitel. "Mitel's solutions combine platforms, APIs, and partnerships, enabling organizations to seamlessly embed modern communications across their business processes. Mitel solutions are also engineered to give organizations the flexibility and choice to control how their communications are deployed and retain the freedom to easily evolve their business model when they see fit."

"Mitel's approach to customer lifecycle management is impressive, and focusing on customer lifecycle management for UC solutions is good business," said Shelly Kramer, principal analyst and founding partner at Futurum Research. "There's no one size fits all when it comes to business needs, and solutions designed to evolve, change, and grow as customers need them are key. Mitel realizes that and structures its offerings accordingly."

"Mitel made tremendous strides in 2022 as it transformed and strengthened its go-to-market approach in 2022 to meet the varying near and long-term communications needs of organizations evolving how they operate in an increasingly hybrid-work world," said Blair Pleasant, president and principal analyst of COMMfusion.
