Most businesses find that cordless phones are useful for wandering around the building but they suffer from:
- A limited range or calls cut off by black spots
- Lack of functionality for handling calls
- Difficulty using any kind of speed-dial or directory
- Having to carry both the cordless and mobile around
- Limited lifespan of cordless and not covered by telephone system maintenance
- Integrated DECT versions to solve these issues are expensive to deploy
“Twinning” is the ability to use your mobile phone as a cordless extension on your office telephone system.
As soon as you enter the office, myPortal to go App detects the office Wifi and automatically logs your smartphone to your internal extension (often your desk phone). The app is compatible with OpenScape Business Systems.
Seamless roaming – Fully voice friendly WiFi enables the conversations to be excellent quality (QoS) and hands the call over between various parts of the business to give a seamless cordless experience, even holding the call if you pass a blackspot until you re-emerge.
The cordless app is fully functional. You can see the status of your colleagues and one-touch dialling of your other extension users is a breeze.
Mobile remains fully functional – At any time you can make and receive your normal mobile calls and use your mobile without closing the app.
Access to the full company, Outlook and mobile directory at any time.
Save money on calls and data – By using the low cost fixed line network through your Unify telephone system and cut the use of your data plan by using the office WiFi while located there.
Combined Voice mail from both the office extension and mobile is given to you as a convenient recording attached to e-mails.
When you leave the WiFi coverage of the office it becomes a mobile again and resets your presence.
Save international calls – By opening the app and logging onto the office telephone system from any WiFi anywhere in the world and pay nothing to make and receive phone calls.
Improving contactability, even when abroad by logging on as an extension user.
Improve home working with a simple WiFi log on at home, with the same functionality as the office extension.
