Originally released for Apple's iPhone, Allworx's Reach application is now available for Android.
Allworx says Reach brings desk-phone functionality and more to the smartphone. Reach is designed to integrate seamlessly with new or existing Allworx products and requires no additional hardware. It can be used with either a Wi-Fi or cellular data connection.
"Extending the compatibility of Allworx Reach to accommodate the increasing popularity of the Android platform is an important phase in the development of the application," said Chris Hasenauer, vice president and general manager of Allworx. "Reach has already been welcomed as a productivity-enhancer by Allworx customers, and Android users are looking forward to realizing the benefits of the application."
With Reach, users can simultaneously make and receive multiple calls from large, visual call windows. Android users can swipe side-to-side to quickly change windows. Almost every Allworx function is available, including conferencing, transferring, parking or holding calls. You can listen to voice mail in any order you choose and place calls using the Allworx system contacts list or their local contacts.
A comprehensive history list tracks every inbound, outbound or missed call. Users can see the status of other Allworx handsets or other Reach users before calling.
Allworx is a Windstream company.
