Avaya offers free access to Spaces collaboration app amid COVID-19 outbreak

Education institutions and not-for-profits offered collaboration tool to enable continuity

Sydney, Australia – March 12, 2020 – Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE:AVYA) today announced it will provide its Avaya Spaces collaboration software for free to education institutions, including colleges and universities, along with qualified not-for-profit (NFP) organisations worldwide to help manage business operations during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

“Coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting the lives of people around the globe and every day we hear new sobering stories about the very real health and safety implications of the spread of this virus,” said Jim Chirico, CEO of Avaya.

“There is an especially immediate need in the education sector as school and university administrators consider the safety of their students while ensuring continuity of their classes, engagement with their students and delivering on their educational objectives.”

Avaya Spaces provides a cloud meeting and team collaboration solution that enables people and organisations to connect and collaborate remotely, including chat, voice, video, online meetings and content sharing. It gives users an extensive set of meeting and team collaboration features, including voice and video conferencing for up to 200 participants both in office and on-the-go.

Since January, Avaya has worked with organisations in Wuhan, China, to help manage the impact of COVID-19. The company donated audio and video equipment and dispatched resources for speedy installation and deployment for hospitals in the region to help medical personnel perform remote consultation and video diagnostics as well as to enable patients to visit virtually with loved ones. The company has also worked with government health departments in the US to setup emergency call centers in a matter of hours to help provide services and information to citizens.

To learn how to sign-up for the free Avaya Spaces offer, available through August 31, 2020, eligible organisations are asked to visit this web page.
