The company has also just rolled out its ShoreTel Mobility 6 release and ShoreTel Conferencing, both optimized for turning the Apple iPad into a business communications tool, enabling integrated collaboration capabilities, increased accessibility and improved communications, regardless of the user's location.
ShoreTel Mobility 6 delivers a native iPad user interface that makes multi-modal communications possible on the tablet . Users place and receive calls with their business persona, exchange instant messages, listen to voice mail messages and create multi-party calls by dragging names from enterprise directories together with a swipe of a finger.
ShoreTel Conferencing for iOS extends the communications experience with application collaboration capabilities. Users can share presentations controlled by their iPad or iPhone with remote participants or view shared desktops of their colleagues' PCs and Macs.
"We've seen widespread endorsement of BYOD initiatives across the board," said Michael Finneran, principal at dBrn Associates. "And based on our latest research, Apple devices appear to be coming into the enterprise at almost twice the rate of Android . ShoreTel's focus for making mobile applications easy to use could lead to higher user adoption."

I think it is good that they are doing some of the things they are doing, on the other hand some of it is old tech already. Avaya / BroadConnect have offered this for sometime now.
