Face it, corporate IT folks: the Apple iPad will invade the office, whether you like it or not. And some UC app developers are giving the iPad very good reasons to be in the office, too.
Here’s the press release:
Richmond Hill, ON, Canada – June 10, 2010 — Esna Technologies Inc. (Esnatech), a market leader in enterprise Unified Communications, has launched a version of its market leading Mobile Unified Communications software for the newly released Apple iPad device. The mobile UC software, UC Client delivers fixed-to-mobile convergence for a wide range of wireless devices with enterprise PBX systems such as Cisco, Avaya, Mitel, Nortel, Iwatsu, AASTRA, Toshiba, eON, Shortel, Asterisk, etc. UC Client provides a complete communications and collaboration solution for mobile users, integrating enterprise presence, mobility, unified messaging, and enterprise voice to mobile devices. The integration of unified communications on wireless devices such as the Apple iPad will dramatically increase the ability of mobile and roaming users to connect to their office and communicate as if they were at their desk. Esnatech has released a version specifically for Apple iPad users so they can link their iPad device to their enterprise voice network/PBX and leverage their iPad as their office communication device.
“With the release of our newest Mobile UC Client software for Apple’s iPad, we provide iPad users with the opportunity to experience full, rich, and live enterprise communications directly on their iPad,” said Davide Petramala, Vice President, Business Development at Esnatech. “Integrated with the Esnatech UC server platform, Telephony Office-Linx, iPad users can manage all of their office communications such as find me/follow me, presence, and instant messaging directly from their device. This once again demonstrates Esnatech’s market leadership in interoperability as we extend our UC services to any telephone system, any business application, and now to any mobile and wireless device including Apple’s iPhone, the iPod touch and now the iPad.”
With the new Mobile UC Client software, users of Esnatech’s Unified Communications platform will have access to the following features directly from their Apple iPad:
- Users can manage their office presence and integrate with enterprise presence solutions such as Microsoft® Live Communications Server and Google® Talk
- Users can define their presence and availability even while on their Apple iPad
- Users are able to view the presence and availability of colleagues in their office
- Initiate and/or participate in enterprise instant messaging sessions with full logging and security
- View complete call history, including real-time view of inbound, outbound and missed calls to/from the office
- Initiate and manage live office calls directly from the Apple iPad, acting as a remote control for their office PBX
- Unified messaging integrated natively in the iPad email application where users can view, manage, and respond to voice and fax messages
The new mobile application installs the Apple iPad and connects through IP to the Telephony Office-LinX™ platform, that is connected to both the enterprise PBX/email platform and business applications. Users will have the ability to view their workgroups and see who is online and available. With access to real-time status, users can then choose the best way to communicate with co-workers.
