ShoreTel Advances Unified Communications For The Apple IPad

Stock quotes in this article: SHOR





SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  ShoreTel® (NASDAQ: SHOR), the leading provider of brilliantly simple unified communications platforms, including business phone systems, applications, and mobile UC solutions, today announced the availability of ShoreTel Mobility 6 and ShoreTel Conferencing – two new releases optimized for turning the Apple iPad into a business communications tool, enabling integrated collaboration capabilities, increased accessibility and improved communications, regardless of the user's location.

ShoreTel Mobility 6 delivers a native iPad user interface for enabling multi-modal communications. Users place and receive calls with their business persona (desk phone caller ID), exchange instant messages, listen to voice mail messages and even create multi-party calls by simply dragging names from enterprise directories together with a swipe of the finger.

"We've seen widespread endorsement of BYOD initiatives across the board," said Michael Finneran, principal at dBrn Associates™. "And based on our latest research, Apple devices appear to be coming into the enterprise at almost twice the rate of Android. ShoreTel's focus for making mobile applications easy to use could lead to higher user adoption."

ShoreTel Conferencing for iOS further extends the communications experience with application collaboration capabilities. Users easily share presentations controlled by their iPad or iPhone with remote participants; or can view shared desktops of their colleagues' PC and Macs.

"As more staff members bring tablets to our university, having an intuitive ShoreTel Mobility client for the iPad is more valuable than ever before," said Hernan London, associate CIO, Barry University. "It enables greater mobile communications for all – while minimizing the demand on our IT department for support."

The combined applications from ShoreTel make the Apple iPad a fully featured business-grade communications device that is brilliantly simple to operate. Users place calls from their iPad using the speaker or a Bluetooth headset, with the same caller ID as their desk phone. Security is assured with integrated VPN SSL encryption that is automatically enabled for the user.
