Having a smartphone not only means you can communicate with your customers and your colleagues on the go but with the latest advances in mobile technology Smartphones are rapidly taking over from the laptop to be the most important mobile device for business communications.  Here are some of the ways your mobile can help you be more productive whilst out of the office:

  • Video Conferencing (VoIP)

With the ability to sync mobile with in-house VoIP telephony – and with improved internet access and 4G coverage – you can make video conferencing calls thereby saving time and reducing the expense of business travel. Our hosted unified communication solutions can provide Voice, Instant Messaging, Audio, Video, and Web Conferencing all from a single interface.

  • Run your everyday PC tasks

Your staff can access all files and applications on the go, making it easier to work and collaborate when and where they need to. Also  run other tasks such as emails and updating diaries or calendars.

  • Reduce your operational and administrative costs

By utilising our Hosted Lync solution you can enable your staff to communicate seamlessly across existing internal IT infrastructure. Your employees will be able to expand the ways they can communicate both within and outside of the office, making it easier for tasks to be completed and information to be transferred as quickly and easily as possible.

  • Switch a call from your office phone to your mobile seamlessly

Calls can be moved seamlessly from one device to another without hanging up, allowing you to transfer an active call from your computer to your mobile as you walk out the door without dropping that call.

  • Have your business number  go to your office phone or your mobile

Empower your staff with ‘one number anywhere’ – this allows you to conveniently integrate your fixed and mobile capabilities so that you never miss a call. Callers need only dial one number to reach your desk phone and mobile phone simultaneously and a single voicemail box can be accessed from any device.

  • Free calls between office and mobile workers

If you use our Hosted Horizon solution together with our mobile services you benefit from free calls between your office phones and mobile devices. It is also ideal for businesses with  multiple-sites as  Horizon connects branch offices together, calls are free between locations and mobiles with everyone sharing the same call plans and directories.

  • Control your calls

Directly control your user account to implement Call Forwarding, DND (Do Not Disturb) or other call features.
