Nuance Communications is a member of the Avaya DevConnect program, an initiative to develop, market, and sell third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company’s investment in its network. As a Platinum member of the program, Nuance is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab, where a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant.
