'Assistant - Mobile' application extends FMC enterprise telephony management to Nokia Eseries phones
PHOENIX, AZ, BROADSOFT CONNECTIONS 2006, October 16, 2006 - BroadSoft, Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced at the BroadSoft Connections 2006 Executive Users Conference its new mobile application that integrates control of enterprise VoIP features with smartphones, standard mobile handsets and IP deskphones. The BroadWorks® Assistant - Mobile application is a carrier class, lightweight mobile application for everyday users of Nokia Eseries handsets. Assistant - Mobile will be available in early November.
For service providers, BroadWorks Assistant - Mobile provides an offering differentiated against competitive PBX offerings, thus increasing enterprise user retention while extending the service provider footprint from the office to mobile handsets. Assistant - Mobile gives carriers the ability to sell value added or premium services within the same BroadWorks application framework with a reduced need for support compared to standard mobile applications.
Functionality & Benefits
The BroadWorks Assistant - Mobile is an easy-to-use mobile application integrated with the BroadWorks VoIP platform. Assistant - Mobile allows SMB and enterprise mobile users to:
- Quickly set VoIP feature preferences from the handset, including Simultaneous Ring, Call Forward All, Call Forward No Answer, Do Not Disturb and Remote Office
- Place calls from mobile handsets, yet appear as though the call originates from the office
- Access corporate and personal directories
- View call logs, including calls missed when the handset is off
- Receive enterprise voicemail notifications on mobile phones
- Create international profiles
"With BroadWorks Assistant - Mobile, service providers get an FMC application that complements their other BroadSoft offerings, such as Hosted PBX and Business Trunking," said David Bukovsky, vice president of products for BroadSoft. "For wireless service providers, Assistant - Mobile enhances their BroadWorks Mobile PBX offering by giving enterprise users the ability to manage their VoIP features, view call logs and access directories from their handsets. With the Nokia Eseries integration, this new solution addresses a real telecommunications need identified by enterprises."
BroadWorks Assistant - Mobile supports the Symbian-based S60 software platform and the following Nokia mobile devices: E50, E60, E61, E62 and E70. BroadSoft is a member of Forum Nokia PRO and the Forum Nokia PRO Enterprise Zone. See related Nokia release.
"Just as BroadSoft's commitment to VoIP innovation led to our introduction of Mobile PBX applications and Fixed Mobile Convergence nearly two years ago, BroadWorks Assistant - Mobile shows that BroadSoft listens to our carrier customers and their end-users, and continues to set the pace for VoIP innovation," said Bukovsky.
