We are delighted with the solution. It complements our existing infrastructure and enables staff to gain access to our VPN by means of a very simple log-on procedure using the NHS Smart Card.

Corporate Search

Solution Overview

In large organisations based over multiple remote sites, it can be a challenge to easily and quickly locate the right person and their personal details such as contact numbers, role, office location, appearance,  area of expertise or their current presence status.

Conduco Corporate Search addresses these issues by providing a comprehensive solution that includes a phone and web based application. The solution is highly flexible and facilitates effective employee communication.

The phone and browser based applications interface with an LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) data source such as Microsoft Active Directory to retrieve user information such as contact numbers and “White Page” information such as job title and location.

The phone based application integrates with CUCM (Cisco Unified Communications Manager) to provide a corporate directory application on Cisco IP phones. The browser based application has an intuitive search facility and integrates with Microsoft OCS (Office Communications Server) to provide presence information. Furthermore, the application integrates with CUCM (Cisco Unified Communications Manager) to provide Click-to-Call functionality to automatically initiate your desk phone to make a call.
