    "With more than 1,000 banking, credit union and financial customers and our existing partner community selling into these segments, ShoreTel understands the unique needs of these customers and resellers," said Shane Harper, Director of Vertical Programmes at ShoreTel. "Now we have a formal team in place, and are broadening our reach through association memberships and industry events. We continue to deliver innovative products that address the changing needs of the financial industry, with strong disciplines in contact centres, multi-site deployments, business-continuity planning, and business-process integration. Specifically we are increasing product development and integration with industry-specific software and security programmes."

    "ShoreTel is currently the only company in the UC space to join the California Bankers Association as an affiliate member, which shows their strong dedication to this industry and to providing solutions that improve customer satisfaction," said Stephen Clark, Senior Vice President of Strategic Partners at the California Bankers Association.
