Mitel MiCollab extension to Think Nexus Telephony – empower your business to ‘think big, yet act small’ by providing employees with everything they need to connect, communicate and collaborate across blended environments – driving the exchange of thoughts and improving the speed & quality of decision being made.
Ensuring effective real-time communications is essential in today’s fast-paced, mobile marketplace. Today work is not always done at a desk. It’s done in the car, while walking to lunch, or while waiting for the plane to board. Today work can include colleagues working from home, different timezones, or with individuals who are not part of the organization.
This is why enabling your business to connect and collaborate more easily and effectively, no matter where they are, how they work or who they work with – is more essential than ever.
Empower your business to ‘think big, yet act small’

Mitel MiCollab brings together voice, video, chat, messaging, web conferencing and team collaboration tools into one single solution making it easier for employees to connect with others and break down the barriers of siloed team environments.
Whether it’s from their desktops or mobile device, with MiCollab employees can become more efficient, easily share ideas and knowledge across the organization, and ultimately work from virtually anywhere.
For example, MiCollab can be used to view the availability of colleagues who may have the answer to a critical, time sensitive question. Even if the employee is away from the office, they can be located and contacted on their mobile device using chat, a voice call, or video call and provide the answer that saves the day.
Furthermore, with team collaboration tools (MiTeam) projects related activities, such as communications, document reviews, task management and collaborative meetings can all be conducted using the same application and be extended to members outside the organization, so that they can share ideas and work together towards achieving project goals.
