Nortel has been selected by the New York Times to provide a suite of technology (IP phones, unified messaging, contact centre) for the newspaper’s new headquarters in Times Square. The technology, which has to be seen as a coup for Nortel, will allow the NYT’s reporters and editors to conduct “instant me” audio conference calls to collaborate on stories with other reporters. “Our new headquarters will reflect a corporate vision of openness to our readers and our community, as well as our commitment to quality and integrity,” said David Thurm, vice president and chief information officer for The New York Times Company. “Because we expect real business benefits from this new building, we’ve taken an aggressive role in every step of its design and construction, including selection of the technology that will help keep us open and connected to the global community we serve.” The press release can be found here.
