Experts say that three-fourths of the U.S. workforce is now mobile, representing more than 100 million workers. These mobile employees prefer to use their own, feature-rich smartphones and tablets for business as well as personal communications – a trend known as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). Organizations must find ways to support mobile IP communications and integrate these personal devices into the enterprise communications infrastructure.
The ShoreTel Mobility solution makes it easy and cost-effective to extend the IP phone system to leading smartphones and tablets. Employees can accept calls from anywhere, and access productivity-enhancing features such as extension dialing, call transfer, company directory, conferencing and presence. They can also connect to the corporate Wi-Fi network to minimize dropped calls in areas of poor cellular coverage.
ShoreTel’s cutting-edge solution, combined with IPC’s expertise, delivers a number of benefits:
- Full desk phone features on mobile devices
- Reduced telecommunications costs
- Improved security and control
- Simplified management and support
IPC and ShoreTel Mobility make it possible for organizations to say yes to employee-owned devices. By eliminating the deployment challenges and security risks associated with BYOD, IPC and ShoreTel are helping customers to boost productivity, cut costs and enable a more flexible, responsive and accessible workforce.
