Phone systems and UC provider ShoreTel on Tuesday introduced a major update to ShoreTel Mobility.
The company says version 8 of the software has integration with the ShoreTel Communicator desktop call-control suite and introduces a virtualized ShoreTel Mobility Router so IT departments can easily mobile-enable the company workforce to encourage collaboration and productivity.
With ShoreTel Mobility 8, you can communicate via video between iOS and Android smartphones and tablets using the ShoreTel Mobility Client, with single-touch video calling from the keypad. Users can participate in multi-party video sessions from mobile devices to room-based video communication systems. The software also supports video communication from the user's Windows desktop using ShoreTel Communicator.
"We're making mobile collaboration simple and ubiquitous," said Pej Roshan, vice president of product management at ShoreTel. "End users want consistency of capabilities regardless of which device they use. Now teams can stay connected and collaborate using the ShoreTel Mobility Client as well as the ShoreTel Communicator desktop client, on any device, and from anywhere."
ShoreTel Mobility 8 is available now worldwide for premises-based customers from qualified ShoreTel reseller partners.
