Esna Celebrates 25 Years of Successful Communication Solutions

September 02, 2014

Esna, a company dedicated to providing top-of-the-line communication solutions for effective collaboration, is celebrating 25 years of successful operation. The company boasts a long list of notable achievements in the evolution of their business-to-business products for boosting enterprise efficiency.

Established in 1989, Esna’s first major milestone was development of the first software-based Unified Communications (UC) solution in 1992. Only two years later, the company developed some of the first Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) and Presence Management systems to augment this technology, as well as a cutting-edge Windows-based communication platform featuring instant messaging, caller ID and auto attendant.

In the late 1990s Esna successfully incorporated their UC services into Microsoft Outlook and PBX manufacturer offerings, and ten years later developed the first UC integration with Google Apps. These solutions were renowned for their market-leading features including voicemail, click-to-call, message broadcasting and paging software.

 “From the very beginning we felt that if we could make communicating and collaborating easy and seamless, we could offer real value to the enterprise,” said CEO Mohammad Nezarati. “Our goal is to have communications software disappear within the application you are working in so that collaboration becomes a natural and intuitive extension of how your work.”

The company’s latest achievement is creating the first Persistent Communication solution for tabbed browsing in 2013. Currently, Esna is working with enterprise apps such as Salesforce, Jive and IBM SmartCloud. For developers, a Software Development Kit with included APIs have been released to allow real-time communication and collaboration functions to be flawlessly integrated into web pages and applications.

Many customers across a variety of industries and geographies have benefited from solutions provided by Esna. As the company celebrates this major milestone in the maturation process, executives are lookin forward to another 25 years of unrestrained success.
