ShoreTel Releases Mobility 6 and ShoreTel Conferencing for Apple iPad
Mar 11, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
ShoreTel announced the availability of ShoreTel Mobility 6 and ShoreTel Conferencing, two new releases optimized for turning the Apple iPad into a business communications tool.
In a release, the Company noted ShoreTel Mobility 6 delivers a native iPad user interface for enabling multi-modal communications. Users place and receive calls with their business persona (desk phone caller ID), exchange instant messages, listen to voice mail messages and even create multi-party calls by simply dragging names from enterprise directories together with a swipe of the finger.
ShoreTel Conferencing for iOS further extends the communications experience with application collaboration capabilities. Users share presentations controlled by their iPad or iPhone with remote participants; or can view shared desktops of their colleagues' PC and Macs.
Users place calls from their iPad using the speaker or a Bluetooth headset, with the same caller ID as their desk phone. Security is assured with integrated VPN SSL encryption that is automatically enabled for the user.
"The Apple iPad has quickly become the most popular tablet brought by users into the workplace," said Peter Blackmore, chief executive officer, ShoreTel. "ShoreTel transforms the iPad into a true multi-modal business communications device for placing and receiving calls just like a desk phone, for sending and responding to instant messages, and for easily collaborating with other PC, Mac and iPad users. By combining these applications together in a manner that is brilliantly simple for employees to use, businesses can feel comfortable supporting a BYOD policy to drive effective communications and enhance productivity."
ShoreTel Mobility 6 and ShoreTel Conferencing are universal client applications available as downloads from the Apple App Store.
Both applications are available for Apple iPad, iPad mini, iPhone and iPod touch users, with some functionality limited on smaller screens.
