Marcel Prins, IT coordinator at Brill, said: "Our system was really dated and difficult to manage.

Once fully implemented, the company's teleworkers in Germany, Switzerland and the United States will be connected and integrated on a single system, centralising and simplifying management and fostering more efficient communication and collaboration between employees in the head office, teleworkers and those working in the company's international offices.About Mitel Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW) is a global provider of unified communications and collaboration (UCC) software, solutions and services that enable organizations to conduct business anywhere, over any medium with the device of their choice.
