- VOSS Press Releases
Richardson, TX - Thursday April 25, 2019 - Today, VOSS Solutions announced the general availability of VOSS-4-UC v19.1.1; the latest major release of the VOSS UC management tool that specializes in automation extension and dynamic communications workflow automation.
VOSS-4-UC v19.1.1 underpins VOSS’ focus on delivering additional out-of-the-box automation by adding support for Contact Center and Auto Attendant features, ongoing usability improvements, and support for new versions of UC applications. There have also been advancements made in VOSS-4-UC that give VOSS’ customers the ability to maximize value from their UC solutions and minimize operational costs, while meeting their evolving business needs. The latest product enhancements are driven by VOSS’ close relationships with a large and diverse customer base, and in combination with extensive in-house UC experience and skills.
VOSS-4-UC automation extension - VOSS’ close collaboration with its customers has led to the introduction of automation into many new business and operational processes, to fuel customer efficiency and extend the applications supported with integrated out-of-the-box automation. For example, version 19.1.1 incorporates an extensive set of Contact Center agent and team management capabilities, and fully manages Auto Attendant across the VOSS-4-UC admin portals.
Integrated service management capabilities stretch to other business aspects of service delivery, such as billing, and role-based access control empowers business stakeholders to respond to change fast. These pre-integrated services harness the agility in VOSS-4-UC to automate tasks in virtually any external system. Key configuration tasks can be provided to business users, to drive behavior that meets specific business needs, including day-to-day tasks such as managing schedules and greetings.
Support for the latest UC application versions - VOSS-4-UC v19.1.1 supports the latest versions of UC applications, such as updated Microsoft Teams support and support for the latest Cisco 12.5 UC applications, including updated Webex Teams support. With VOSS-4-UC, customers can deliver the latest UC applications and capabilities to their user base quickly and efficiently.
Improved usability - VOSS has evolved and expanded its Business Admin Portal (BAP) interface to deliver an impressive user experience with an intuitive and easy-to-use interface. This improves efficiency while significantly lowering the barrier to use for many business tasks, especially for devolved administrators. The intuitive nature of BAP, along with the ability to tailor the interface to suit specific needs, greatly reduces training needs and enables a wide range of users to carry out role-based tasks. This empowers many areas of the business, while ensuring operational costs are minimized.
Bill Dellara, VP Product at VOSS Solutions, commented; “I’m excited about the new features and functionality that we are delivering in Version 19.1.1, and the benefits it will bring to our customers. Our close relationships with our customers, combined with our ability to rapidly deliver the capabilities they need, is really driving our product into a new generation. It’s great to see VOSS-4-UC being used to deliver the agility our customers need to quickly meet the ever-changing needs of their business.”

Dan Payne, CTO, VOSS Solutions
As CTO at VOSS Solutions, I get to talk to a lot of our partners and customers about their specific needs and requirements. One common theme that comes up with all of them, is the need to cut down on operational costs. This can of course be accomplished in many different ways, but the one strategy all of them are looking at, is automating and streamlining day-to-day moves, adds, changes and deletes (MACDs) in their UC solution. Whether it’s a service provider managing many small customers or a single, large and global enterprise, day-to-day MACDs can consume valuable resources.
Looking at a specific example, we recently engaged a large enterprise who has around 130k users globally, who is planning to migrate and onboard another 70k users over the next year. The company currently employs around 25 resources spread across the major geographies, to field roughly 7,000 MACD requests per month. That means on average one of these operations engineers are executing just over 10 MACDs per day. By the time the enterprise has migrated the remaining 70k users, they will need to employ 45 resources to deal with the increased number of MACDs.
With automation however, it’s possible to execute thousands of MACDs per day and employ a much smaller team that simply maintains the automation and business rules. This team does not need to grow as the size of the enterprise grows.
This level of automation can easily be achieved with VOSS-4-UC and ServiceNow.
VOSS-4-UC is VOSS Solutions' UC management and automation platform that is able to perform MACDs across Cisco, Microsoft and BroadSoft systems (both on-prem and cloud).
ServiceNow is a flexible ITSM platform widely used as both an incident management system and customer portal.
Many of our partners and customers already use ServiceNow, either as an incident management system or as a customer / end user portal. The problem is that these tickets or order requests are still being picked up and executed by operations or support engineers in the background. By integrating ServiceNow with VOSS-4-UC however, it is possible to automate the execution of these requests, thereby:
- Reducing the number of engineers required to execute MACDs
- Reducing human errors made by operations engineers
- Reducing the turnaround time on ticket requests
- Improving customer satisfaction and stickiness
There are two integration options available:
- Undergo ServiceNow development to integrate with the full featured VOSS-4-UC REST API
- Leverage the VOSS-4-UC ServiceNow Integration to poll ServiceNow for new tickets, process and resolve them
The first option is recommended if there is an existing ServiceNow development team in place that can build out the integration and ServiceNow is being used as a customer or end user portal where more complex workflows are being used.
The second option is optimally effective when ServiceNow is used purely as a ticketing system. The VOSS-4-UC ServiceNow Integration simply polls for new tickets, executes related automation and closes the ticket once completed.
Here is a video demonstrating the ease and power of such an integration (using the addon module option):
