Cloud Mobility firm IPTEL, a previous Winner of Comms Business Reseller of the Year, has unwrapped a suite of hosted FMC and BYOD solutions, called uMobility, uVoIP & uNiFi that overcome some of the traditional issues associated with Smart phone and landline integration, claims the company.
Outside of clear and proven Revenue opportunities for new business, the IPTEL Cloud Mobility Solutions focus on delivering White Label, Open Source, and Carrier Independent Solutions. This enables simple integration into existing portfolios and can be used as a retro fit to existing IP/PBX and Hosted VoIP Installations. Open Source applications are also an opportunity for Resellers to provide cutting edge mobility solutions without having to change SIP or Call Termination providers.
FMC has, until now, been searching for a place in the market. Back in the early noughties, the need to be flexible and work from any location was not really on businesses’ minds. However, behaviours have changed over the past decade. The way we choose to work, whether on the move or in the office; rapidly changing technology; the greater use of personal devices in the office [BYOD] as well as an increasing expectation to always be available to customers, means the demand for FMC has finally arrived.
IPTEL’s uNiFi is a 100% Cloud based Mobile VoIP Solution, an Office Phone System on the Smartphone, enabling Single Number Reach, Landline Calls to be made and received on the Smartphone and all the Office Phone System features driven to the Mobile handset (Short Extension Dialling, Call Recording, Call Transfer etc…). This type of Solution supports BYOD, Home Working and will no doubt grow in prominence as of 2014 when all employees with min 6 months service have the right to work flexibly from any location.
FMC is about bringing together the best of mobile and fixed technology into a single converged solution. Avoiding some of the ‘smoke and mirrors’ technology currently available which are really enhanced Mobile Twinning Solutions, full interoperability of iPhone Blackberry, Android, Windows and Symbian platforms with most IP/PBX and Hosted Solutions is an important feature of the uMobility Application.
IPTEL’s 3 core Solutions, uMobility, uVoIP and uNiFi are all cloud based, easily deployed and managed and drive end user and business value.
The scope for resellers to increase their profitability and strengthen their customer ties is also vastly improved with the availability of Mobility Solutions. The complex combination of economic pressures, customer increases in expectation and advances in technology means now, more than ever could be the right time for Fixed Mobile Convergence.
FMC has the potential to reduce costs, increase productivity and fuel future growth – and that can only be an exciting prospect for UK businesses and in particular UK IT and Telecoms Service Providers. IPTEL is confident that its Cloud Mobility Solutions will provide the platform for resellers to simply embrace Mobility, enhance their Service Portfolios and provide opportunities for revenue growth in the FMC space.
