ShoreTel Inc.’s Mobility 7 software enhances the unified communication capabilities of iOS and Android mobile devices.
The software comes with a completely redesigned user interface and simplified integration geared towards improving the productivity of iPhone, iPad and Android device users.
“With our latest software release, resellers can deliver a fantastic and intuitive experience for end users and IT administrators alike,” said David Petts, senior vice-president of worldwide sales at ShoreTel (NASDQ: SHOR). “Customers are able to integrate leading smart phones and tablets securely, simply and cost effectively into existing enterprise communication applications and infrastructures to provide greater flexibility and increased productivity.”
One of the key features of the application is the “Today” screen. Today integrates with the native calendar of Android and iOS platforms.
The ShoreTel mobility client automatically displays conference calls on the mobile user’s calendar and allows for a one-click access to Web and audio conference. By simply pressing a “join” button, a user can make the phone automatically dial a specific pre-determined conference call number and enter the conference call participation code.
Mobility 7 also integrates with ShoreTel Conferencing to allow user to switch to a presentation that provides both audio and visual participation capabilities.
The personal dial feature allows non-business calls to be placed with the user’s cellular caller ID. This eliminates the need to continuously switch back and forth between voice apps.
Mobility 7 supports more than 50 mobile devices across the Android, iOS and BlackBerry (up to 7.1) platforms.
The release comes with enhanced integration with ShoreTel’s premise-based and hosted UC platforms, directory query integration and instant messaging whether a company is using ShoreTel, Microsoft OCS or Lynch instant messaging and presence servers.
