- Better call and message notification: For web applications, users need to launch a browser and navigate to a web page that can get hidden behind other browser tabs, making it easy to miss calls and chats. As a native Windows and Mac app, Virtual Office Desktop automatically launches when the computer starts. The app shows system alerts or screen pops in the foreground when incoming calls, IMs and faxes are received. Calls can ring both a headset and the computer speakers in case the user has temporarily put down his or her headset.
- Simplified user interface and compact design: Saves screen space while providing q uick access to a personal and corporate directory, soft phone, online meetings and faxes. The History tab provides an easily searchable archive of call logs, chats, meeting info, recordings and social media feeds.
- Improved call quality: Echo cancellation and native support for advanced speech codecs improve audio quality on Windows, even with low bandwidth connections.
