Aastra has announced the introduction of its latest version 2.0 of Aastra Mobile Client to bring the benefits of fixed mobile convergence (FMC) to businesses of all sizes.
The company says mobile phones have become an indispensable tool for enterprise communications. With more and more business done on the move or remotely, it is vital that companies be able to integrate mobility into their communications environment for improved productivity, reachability and responsiveness. This is true for road warriors – especially those who travel a lot internationally, employees requiring on-site mobility, home workers or even for disaster recovery imperatives.
Aastra says their Mobile Client has a friendly user interface and brings the benefits of a deskphone to a mobile device integrating it seamlessly with the user’s enterprise communication platform.
With this new release, the mobile client offers valuable extra features such as presence information for more efficient call management (less telephone tag, better access).
This complements all of the call features popular with business users currently available (such as enquire/transfer, conferencing and extension dialling). In addition, there is no more need to juggle between numbers and voice mails: one-number calling and a single voicemail helps members of staff to be more reachable and responsive to customers and colleagues. So even being away from the desk no longer means being cut off from the communications within the enterprise.
