Solution Enables Users to Send SMS Texts and Seamlessly Move Business Calls Between Mobile and Desktop Clients for Enhanced Mobility
The updates to MegaPath’s Unified Communications solution include:
- SMS Text Messaging – Users can send SMS texts within the UC desktop and mobile clients using their business VoIP phone number instead of their personal mobile number. SMS Texting is integrated with the company’s directory, so users can easily send and receive individual and group texts across all of their devices.
- Device Handover from Mobile to Desktop UC Clients – MegaPath’s UC customers can seamlessly move a call from one device to another (i.e., desktop to mobile), avoiding the need to hang up and call back. This feature supports today’s highly-mobile workforce, in particular, on-the-go employees that switch between using desktop and mobile devices throughout the day.
- Voice Manager Integration – Users can now access the Voice Manager tool from within the MegaPath UC client. Voice Manager is a convenient mobility tool that enables Hosted Voice users to listen to voicemails, read transcribed voicemails, manage greetings, manage audio conferences, configure custom profiles, and easily manage call routing and other settings on the fly.
MegaPath UC is available as an add-on to MegaPath’s Hosted Voice service. The combined solution integrates IP voice telephony capabilities with more than 50 calling and mobility features, as well as enhanced collaboration features such as presence, instant messaging, screen sharing, video conferencing and SMS texting.
“These new service enhancements reflect MegaPath’s ongoing commitment to product innovation and further investment in our Voice and Unified Communications service offerings,” said Kurt Hoffman, President and Chief Executive of Cloud Services, MegaPath. “Features like SMS Texting and Device Handover give our UC customers even more freedom of mobility by offering additional ways to collaborate instantly and efficiently using their business VoIP number on any device.”
