e-fon Communicator softphone integrated into Outlook and Messenger
Unified Communications and the use of IT for voice communication is a contemporary issue, by which companies increase efficiency while lowering costs. The new e-fon Communicator allows small and medium business enterprises to benefit from this new technology without changing the existing infrastructure and without any investment into additional servers.
The e-fon Communicator is available for download and can be installed on the PC. After setting up the e-fon phone number and launching the application, the user may place phone calls from the PC to any landline or mobile number. Unlike other products, this softphone is integrated into Microsoft Outlook and Windows Live Messenger. Therefore call protocols or journals are saved directly within Outlook, access to Outlook contacts is granted and even the presence/awareness status generated by the known Microsoft Messenger environment shows your availability (for example busy when on the phone).
"It is our target to offer innovative solutions to our customers, which generate added-value and where return on investment is reached in a very short time", explains Stefan Meier, CEO e-fon AG. "The e-fon Communicator is an established softphone covering the needs of small and medium business enterprises and supplements our existing portfolio perfectly. Several customers are already using our softphone and are increasing their efficiency especially for mobile workforces while at the same time saving on call costs."
"The e-fon Communicator expands e-fon's product line by offering its clients the advantages of Unified Communications", says Markus Sieger, CEO iscoord ag. "Other products currently available on the market are either not integrated into existing solutions like Outlook or need additional server infrastructure. Due to the integration of the reliable is-phone client technology, companies can profit from an economically priced telephony solution without big investment that is implemented fast and generates no maintenance or service costs."
