Simplified User Licensing

NEC has streamlined and simplified its user licensing structure. The licensing structure gives both technology and financial decision makers the opportunity to anticipate user cost. In addition, it provides each employee with the license package that they need to perform their job efficiently.

The Standard License Package is designed for the regular UC user — the average employee who works in Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, etc. Each Standard user gets UC features, voicemail, and unified messaging. So he or she will be fully enabled to work anywhere, anytime, and from any device as needed.

The Premium User License Package is designed for contact center agents or UC power users that also function as attendants and operators. Each Premium user gets access to all the Standard UC features, as well as contact center, attendant, and CRM integration features. Ultimately, this gives them a more robust UC experience that easily ties into their daily business processes/business process technologies.
