Avaya and Lenovo Deliver Enhanced Mobile Telephony Solution on Lenovo PCs

Avaya and Lenovo today announced the availability of the Avaya Mobility Edition for Lenovo ThinkPad notebooks and ThinkCentre desktops, a solution targeted for business users that embeds the Avaya Internet protocol (IP) Softphone application into Lenovo PCs. With an Avaya IP Softphone, a Lenovo PC becomes the office phone by integrating with an existing office extension number and linking it with multiple office, home and mobile numbers that can ring simultaneously or in a sequence at the user’s choice. In addition, users can make calls using a simple, click-to-dial feature from corporate directories, call logs, Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes contact lists or any open desktop application.

The solution includes support for biometric log-in using fingerprint readers on Lenovo ThinkPad notebooks and optional Lenovo external keyboards, as well as a new voicemail notification function that uses Lenovo’s ThinkLight feature.
