During the event, attendees will learn how Avaya IP Office can lower costs and drive business growth by allowing companies to expand from five employees at one location to 1,000 or more workers at an unlimited number of locations. Additionally, the sessions will cover how IP Office allows businesses to connect home and remote workers and gain new features and capabilities such as mobility, video conferencing and a full-fledged sales/customer service center simply by adding software.

"We're looking forward to showing the attendees how Avaya IP Office can benefit them," said Steve Melchiorre, CEO of Converged Communication Systems. "We're very pleased to host the IP Office & Business Benefits Knowledge Transfer event with our valued partner Avaya."

The event features additional business benefits and admin tracks for individuals who have previously attended IP Office training. Attendees will also get the opportunity to visit the Avaya demo lounges. Matt Furrer will present on behalf of Avaya, and the speakers for CSS include Kevin Rubin, Michael Donis and Jesse Miller.

The first session will take place from noon to 2:45 p.m. and will include lunch, introductions, and six different breakout sessions.
