How will Avaya Chapter 11 Filing Affect Customer Experience?

In the wake of Avaya’s chapter 11 filing we take pride in our financial stability and the commitment we make to our customers.

In a time where the future of Avaya is unpredictable due to their recent Chapter 11 filing, it’s normal for Avaya customers and Nortel system users to question how this affects them and their business. While the future remains unknown for Avaya, we assess the potentially negative impact on the end-users and ensure that our solution remains strong and viable for our customers.

Potential negative impact of Avaya’s Chapter 11 Filing:

  1. Unstable and rising prices
  2. Expensive and limited customer service due to staff reduction
  3. Mandatory costly updates
  4. Revised Service Level Agreements
  5. Quality of Service (QoS) degradation

If you currently have an Avaya or Nortel phone system and wish to migrate to the Cloud, now is a perfect time to consider UniVoIP’s solution with this exclusive, limited only offer.
