Sao Paulo and Tokyo, March 2, 2016 - NEC Corporation (NEC: TSE: 6701) today announced the provision of its unified communications solution UNIVERGE 3C to the Brazilian Post Office in order to efficiently unify the communications between the post office's 19 locations throughout the State of Sao Paulo and reduce costs.

This pioneering project includes the installation of NEC software and terminals for enabling VoIP communications for long distance calls between the 19 post office locations across the state of Sao Paulo, the 22 locations of the Sao Paulo Metropolitan Division as well as locations in Brasilia. Additional benefits of the new system include management software that tracks expenses by cost center and a unified communications system that carries audio and video in support of conference rooms for meetings and collaborative work.

NEC's UNIVERGE 3C is highly scalable and easy to use, enabling companies to quickly respond to demand and expand services through a simple licensing model. Features include audio, video, web conferencing, document presentation, file sharing, integration with e-mail and remote management, while allowing companies to use their existing IT infrastructure and web environment.

"NEC's unified communications system is the first VoIP technology to be used at the Brazilian Post Office and serves as a reference for expansion into other states," said Jair Rodrigues de Freitas, technology manager, Brazilian Post Office. "The links this system creates between management and administrative locations through a single platform ensure that services will be provided efficiently, effectively and customers will receive the highest quality of service available."

"NEC aims to create social value by capitalizing on the latest technologies to strengthen social infrastructure," said Daniel Mirabile, president of NEC in Brazil. "The post office is a vital component of any community and NEC is proud to see UNIVERGE 3C enable the Brazilian Post Office to improve communications and reduce costs, thereby enhancing service for the overall public."

This R$ 4 million order covers a 5 year period and includes a system warranty, support and outsourced maintenance. Going forward, NEC aims to capitalize on this model for contributing to additional regions across the country.
