Dan Payne, CTO, VOSS
VOSS-4-UC 19.1.1 introduces management for Cisco’s Contact Center Express (UCCX) application. UCCX provides an advanced contact center solution for SMB organizations, supporting up to 400 agents and IVR ports. This extends VOSS-4-UC’s contact center management capabilities to cater for both UCCE (Enterprise) and UCCX.
This new integration allows an administrator to manage multiple UCCX servers from a single portal, i.e. VOSS-4-UC Automation Extension. This is especially useful given the limited number of agents supported per server as a larger enterprise would need to spread agents across a number of servers. Agents from all configured servers are searchable and manageable from one single view.
Other common contact center elements are exposed for management as well:
- Resource groups
- Contact service queues
As a result, all the out of the box VOSS-4-UC capabilities such as bulk management, billing integration, role based access, and flow through provisioning from AD or ServiceNow (to name just a few) are available for these configuration elements.
The VOSS-4-UC Contact Center Express management dashboard (shown below) provides quick access to all these features as well as deployment numbers and agent activity stats.
In addition to being able to directly configure these common elements, automatic agent provisioning has been built into existing UC management features. In other words, it is now possible to onboard a new agent AND provide them with UC services in a single operation (MACD). This also takes care of the necessary application user association in Cisco UCM to enable the agent’s device to be controlled for call recording or other purposes.
Lastly, VOSS-4-UC provides tools which allow agents to be re-skilled in bulk. An administrator can choose to re-skill agents by selecting one or more agents, or re-skilling an entire team or resource group at a time.

- VOSS Press Releases
Cisco Live, San Diego, CA - Today, VOSS Solutions announced that FlexITy has become the latest customer to take VOSS-4-UC, the world’s most advanced UC management platform.
FlexITy is an award-winning integrator of smart technology and service solutions, built on powerful and digitally advanced secure platforms, and delivered with decades of IoT expertise and services. FlexTEL, part of the FlexITy brand, is a leading managed business communications solution that provides voice, data, converged, and managed services for businesses and enterprises that need a proven, responsive, cost-effective alternative to the phone and cable monopolies.
FlexITy has been working with VOSS since 2007, when the service provider originally selected the VOSS technology as part of its Cisco HCS platform, in the form of CUCDM. The two companies have worked closely and collaboratively since then.
In 2019, FlexITy chose to upgrade its UC management platform to VOSS-4-UC, in order to realise many additional benefits that VOSS offers. Key drivers for VOSS-4-UC include:
- Shared Multi-Tenancy Architecture
FlexITy wished to deploy a Cisco HCS shared architecture platform in order to create a UCaaS model and offer it to cover small-large enterprises. VOSS-4-UC enables FlexITy to deploy and manage a multi-tenant shared architecture in Cisco HCS, so the provider can create affordable and attractive UCaaS packages for the Canadian market.
- Northbound Integration
VOSS-4-UC provides seamless integration into billing, asset management and other northbound service management systems. By choosing VOSS-4-UC, FlexITy has access to a flexible and agile UC management platform that leads to many efficiency improvements, speeds processes, and offers a far simpler end user experience.
Denis Govedas, Director, Voice Services and Architecture at FlexITy, commented; “We pride our relationship with VOSS as they help us bring strategic offerings to our clients. The flexibility and agility that VOSS-4-UC brings to our Cisco HCS platform, coupled with the responsiveness of the VOSS services team, means that our business is all-encompassing, delivering cutting edge UC solutions to the Canadian market.”
Rob Moore, VP Global Services at VOSS, added; “Having worked alongside FlexITy for more than a decade, I’m really delighted that we can help them to get the most out of their HCS platform with VOSS-4-UC, to quickly respond to market demand by offering flexible and affordable UC packages that suit the requirements of their customers.”

Tuesday April 30, 2019 - Richardson, TX - Today, VOSS Solutions announced that Axians has followed the VOSS H.O.M.E program to transition its UC management from CUCDM to VOSS-4-UC.
Axians, a VINCI Energies brand, offers its customers in various markets a comprehensive range of ICT solutions and services spanning business applications and data analytics, enterprise networks and digital workspaces, datacenters and cloud services, telecommunications infrastructure and cybersecurity.
Axians became a Cisco HCS customer in 2015, providing cloud collaboration services to its network of customers. At the time of purchase, Axians’ Cisco HCS platform was managed by Cisco Unified Communications Domain Manager (CUCDM). Over the next 3 years, Axians successfully grew its HCS platform, offering UCaaS to customers across the Netherlands.
In 2018, when Cisco announced the end of life for CUCDM, Axians took the decision to transition away from CUCDM, with the aim of addressing two critical factors:
- Axians wanted to reduce the level of manual administration on its Cisco HCS platform by introducing higher levels of automation
- Axians was keen to integrate its Cisco HCS platform into other business systems to offer a richer suite of UC services in a more seamless way
After evaluating other products on the market, Axians chose to transition from CUCDM to VOSS-4-UC.
To address Axians’ desire to improve the levels of automation in its HCS platform, VOSS introduced flow-through provisioning which automates the process of user provisioning by synchronizing users and their UC services with data provided by a customer LDAP server. With flow-through provisioning, VOSS can automate many of the manual MACDs that Axians had been carrying out on behalf of its customers, improving time to resolution and increasing customer satisfaction.
As part of the automation optimization process, VOSS also introduces multiple levels of devolved administration, so that Axians can retain overall control of the platform while decentralizing various levels of administrative power down to the customer and end user level. This enables customers to have more control over their UCaaS platform and has seen an improvement in end user adoption.
With VOSS-4-UC, Axians now has a single point of integration to interconnect its HCS platform with upstream and downstream IT systems. As a result, Axians is integrating Cisco HCS with ServiceNow, with longer term goals of integrating its contact center and Webex Teams environments as well.
Tom Greeve, Director at Axians commented; “As a Systems Integrator, it’s our job to provide high quality and cost-effective leading edge UCaaS packages to our customers. VOSS enables Axians to provide a highly automated and flexible UC management framework that allows us to respond to our customers' requirements quickly and efficiently.”
Stefan Peters, Director at VOSS Solutions, added; “VOSS-4-UC unlocks many new opportunities for Axians to grow its HCS platform, to integrate new systems and to adopt new technologies, and to really embrace the power of automation. We are excited to see Axians customer base grow as a result of this strong foundation that is underpinned by VOSS.”

Axians supports its customers — private-sector companies, public-sector entities, operators and service providers — in their infrastructures and digital solutions development. To this end, Axians offers a comprehensive range of ICT solutions and services spanning business applications and data analytics, enterprise networks and digital workspaces, datacenters and cloud services, telecommunications infrastructure and cybersecurity.
