Switch Management - GenSwitch

MAC Management for Nortel / Avaya CS1000, Avaya CM, Nortel Meridian & more...


GenSwitch is a powerful switch management package for performing Moves, Adds and Changes to your Avaya CM, Nortel / Avaya CS1000 or Nortel Meridian telephone system of any size. GenSwitch is far superior to anything else available, allowing the casual user to perform changes, yet fully supporting the demands of more advanced users. GenSwitch also provides technicians with additional functionality to simplify tedious activities, such as bulk change processing, transaction scheduling, and auditing by username, that would otherwise not be possible.

In keeping with the Genesis tradition, GenSwitch is very fast and powerful yet simple to use so simple that clerical staff can easily be trained to manage your phones. GenSwitch fully integrates and shares information with Genesis Call Accounting, Traffic Analysis and Contact Center Manager packages, eliminating the need for duplicate entry of information. For example if you add a new user using GenSwitch, the new user's extension and name will be automatically added to Genesis Call Accounting. GenSwitch can control a single switch or multiple switches from a centralized location and is fully IP capable.

GenSwitch is also capable of sharing information between your different phone systems which can greatly simplify administration of your corporate-wide dial plan by allowing you to assign and reserve extensions and ports, assign them to a specific location, clone existing phones and assist when transitioning from legacy to more modern PBX equipment.

Like all Genesis products GenSwitch is available in client and web-based versions in Premise, Cloud, Hosted and Virtual environments. GenSwitch fully integrates with other Genesis Solutions providing you with a complete, unified solution.
