M5 Networks announced Thursday the addition of the M5 Softphone, which enables users of its unified communications service to manage their telephone calls over the M5 network from a PC or laptop.
With the M5 Softphone, users can access nearly every feature of the M5 Cisco phone. They can, for example, take, make and transfer calls; access company and personal directories; utilize speed dial; see voice mail alerts and manage voice mail; and initiate and manage conference calls.
"Unified communications is about breaking down the barriers between the systems and devices we use to be productive, in this case the computer and the phone," said Dan Hoffman, CEO of M5 Networks. "We are absolutely dedicated to giving our customers choices about how, when and where they work."
The M5 Softphone is the latest addition to the company’s unified communications and mobility offerings, which also include M5 Scribe voice mail to email transcription, M5 Fax, Find Me/Follow Me and the M5 Connect family of business system integrations.
