FCS Computer Systems Solution Now Rated "Avaya Compliant"

FCS Computer Systems, a leading provider of comprehensive hospitality solutions, announced on June 16, 2011, that its WinExpress Version 2 integrated call billing and voice-mail system is fully compliant with key IP telephony solutions from Avaya Inc. Avaya is a global provider of business collaboration systems, software, and services.

WinExpress Version 2 Services Hotels

Using a single server interfacing with a hotel’s property management system, WinExpress Version 2 helps hotels provide the following services to their customers: guest voice-mail, automatic billing, room status, and mini-bar updates. Avaya tested the product for compatibility with its own IP Office Release 6.1 via the company’s DevConnect program. As a result of being compliant, FCS’s solution was included in IP Office Release 6.1’s launch as a select partner supporting the Hospitality industry.

Benefits Customers

By providing a solution that is fully compliant with Avaya’s product, customers benefit from expanded options and enhanced performance. If a customer is already using Avaya’s product, WinExpress Version 2 can be easily brought into the same environment, providing a cost effective way for customers to enhance their communications infrastructures.

Avaya’s DevConnect Program

As mentioned earlier, FCS had their product certified through Avaya’s DevConnect program. The DevConnect program is an Avaya initiative with the intent to work with third party vendors. By certifying the products these vendors offer to work with Avaya technology, Avaya is working to extend the value of a company’s current investment in its network. Products submitted to the DevConnect program for testing are put through rigorous custom testing before being declared compliant. Businesses can confidently add these third party products without having to worry about replacing existing infrastructure.

Benefits Avaya

According to Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations, Avaya, “Development partners like FCS are helping Avaya reach new markets.” Says Rossman, working with FCS “opens new doors of opportunity for us to explore.”
