LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Smoothstone IP Communications, the leading provider of cloud-based enterprise unified communications applications and services, announces the launch of Mobile Connect, an application designed specifically for Apple's iPhone that allows enterprises to extend the reach of their corporate communications services to mobile employees.
Enterprises are increasingly relying on mobile phones to drive employee productivity both in and out of the office, while also trying to drive down costs by integrating these devices with their enterprise communications systems. The Mobile Connect application helps to meet this challenge, allowing mobile employees to have seamless access to their enterprise communication network from their mobile handset. With Mobile Connect, mobile and remote employees are better equipped to work as effectively and efficiently as those in corporate offices.
The application is available exclusively to Smoothstone customers as a free download from the Apple App Store and is compatible with any iPhone.
Through the use of the Mobile Connect app, the enterprise's mobile workforce can take full advantage of all of the outbound calling features from Smoothstone, such as access to the company directory, low-cost international calling, 4-digit On-Net dialing and visual voice mail with one-touch access to listen to and manipulate messages.
Mobile Connect provides users with a convergence of the fixed and mobile phones, providing callers the simplicity of a single number and maintaining privacy of personal mobile numbers. Incoming calls ring on both desk phone and mobile phone simultaneously and outbound calls placed through Mobile Connect reflect the caller ID from the corporate number, not the iPhone's mobile number.
Mobile Connect provides separate call logging, call history and voice mail allowing users to keep their work and personal calls completely separated on the same device. Compliance requirements and features from Smoothstone Complete are also carried over to the iPhone through Mobile Connect, with advanced features such as call recording, and centralized call detail reporting that are extended from the Smoothstone cloud-based enterprise platform.
"Smoothstone understands the increasingly important role that the mobile phone is playing in the enterprise communications landscape," said Jeff Wellemeyer, president and CTO of Smoothstone. "Mobile Connect will allow enterprises to expand their workforces in the field while keeping their communications all on one platform."
Smoothstone IP Communications is the leading provider of cloud based communications for the enterprise - including MPLS-based application networking, enterprise voice, unified threat management, advanced contact center solutions, unified messaging and collaboration tools – all delivered as a unified suite of cloud-based applications. Smoothstone's scalable, on-demand applications and services can be integrated with a customer's existing network and telecommunications infrastructure, operational processes, and employee activities, enabling a customer to migrate to unified IP communications as their business requirements dictate.
