HP is extending three of its services and solutions lines to better assist companies looking to adopt unified communications platforms, and address what it sees as a shortfall in services to link VoIP, videoconferencing and instant messaging systems.
The company has partnered with vendors including Avaya, Polycom, Microsoft and Alcatel-Lucent to offer Voice Transformation Solutions, a Virtual Workplace Solutions platform and UC Network Readiness Services.
The lines focus on planning new systems and helping companies migrate from land-lines to VoIP calling and conferencing systems.
"Clients need to understand how changes to their work environment can impact communications," said HP Technology Consulting director of global unified communications Rich Skoba.
"By collaborating with HP, clients can leverage HP's methodology and testing of multivendor solutions to create their unique unified communications journey."
The Network Readiness Services allow companies to ensure that their network infrastructure can support future plans for communications systems.
The Virtual Workplace Solutions platform, meanwhile, extends the UC platform, offering services and training for companies looking to pair sytems with management and mobility tools.
All the new platforms and services are available worldwide through HP's Technology Consulting unit.
