Google and Microsoft Business Customers Can Accelerate Productivity and ROI with New Broadview UC Software
OfficeSuite UC Now Available for Google Apps for Work, Gmail and Microsoft Office 365
August 11, 2016, Rye Brook, NY – Broadview Networks®, a leader in cloud-based unified communications (UC) and information technology services, announced today that its OfficeSuite UC™ for Google® and OfficeSuite UC™ for Microsoft Office 365® are now available. With enhanced OfficeSuite UC™ software, customers can seamlessly collaborate and communicate using their favorite productivity apps, making more efficient use of their time.
As workforces continue to adopt more text-based communications, it is important for businesses to match their employees’ preferences in technology and digital lifestyle. Now OfficeSuite UC™ for Google® and OfficeSuite UC™ for Microsoft Office 365® allow businesses to seamlessly integrate the sophisticated and user-centric UC features of MyOfficeSuite® directly into the Google® Apps for Work, Gmail™ and Microsoft Office 365® applications they are already using from any browser.
Together, call pop-ups, chats, click-to-call capabilities and the ability to check for a co-worker’s availability through an online presence indicator save employees a significant amount of time. The frustration of locating phone numbers, picking up a phone, dialing and getting caught in a time-zapping game of “phone tag” are eliminated, creating efficiency and savings for the customer. In addition, employees can make changes to personal settings in real time, such as forwarding calls and accessing logs to view missed calls. The latest capabilities further empower employees by enabling them to:
- Quickly dial phone numbers by using click-to-call.
- Hold secure, company-wide chats regardless of device or location.
- Check co-worker availability through presence indicators.
- View contact information in call pop-ups before picking up calls.
- Update information and notes directly in Google® or Outlook® contacts.
- Launch online video conferences with OfficeSuite HD Meeting™.
- Download and listen to voicemail.
