Digium has released an iPhone app that gives the company’s Switchvox business-phone system users the features they’re accustomed to on an IP phone – including the ability to check voice mail, set a personal status and see a co-worker’s status.
The app is considered ideal for employees who bring their own devices, as well as remote workers and telecommuters. It allows users to make and receive calls, record, transfer and participate in three-way conferences. They can also access iPhone contacts to dial any number via Switchbox.
“The Switchvox Softphone for iPhone lets you take your business phone wherever you go, so that you have the tools you need to serve your customers effectively and collaborate with co-workers,” said Adam Kramer, product manager for the Switchvox product line.
The app supports iOS 8 and is free in the App Store. It can easily be assigned to a Switchvox phone extension and requires a Switchvox subscription.
