Microsoft Outlook and MS Lync are applications that many knowledge workers invoke in the morning and keep running all day. The IP Office Plug-in for Microsoft Outlook and/or Microsoft Lync bring a subset of the Avaya one-X™ Portal for IP Office user experiences to Outlook or Lync. The plug-in allows the user to communicate with contacts without leaving the Outlook window and without needing to bring up separate client applications. This vastly improves user productivity.

  • Initiate a voice call (to work, to home or other numbers)

  • Listen to voicemail
  • View Call history
  • Export Outlook contacts to Avaya one-X™ Portal for IP Office Server

    presence published by contacts on other presence networks (e.g.: GoogleTalk), Calendar presence
  • “Collapse” plug-in window to avoid capturing the entire screen. UC features will continue to be
    available to the Outlook user
