How about a free, award-winning app that would make you more efficient, professional and effective?
By October 2013, nearly 150 million people in the US owned smartphones — mostly Apple® iOS or Android™ devices. That’s 62.5 percent of the mobile phone market, according to comScore (October 2013 U.S. Smartphone Subscriber Market Share Report).
What are you doing with yours?
According to comScore, 75 percent of us are on Facebook, 54 percent are on Google Play, 52 percent are running Google searches, 48 percent are listening to Pandora radio, 48 percent are watching YouTube videos, 45 percent checking the weather, and 30 percent following stocks on Yahoo.
We had this crazy idea for a smartphone app that — instead of distracting users from their work — would make it easier to get work done, better and faster. What a concept.
That app is Toshiba’s Call Manager™ Mobile, which lets you use your smartphone as an extension on Toshiba’s cloud-based VIPedge™ business telephone solution. (IPMobility does this for our on-premises phone systems.)
You can take your office calls, instant messages and visual voice mail on your Apple or Android smartphone just as if you were at your desk. Access advanced phone system features. Have multiple IM sessions open, and send messages to a group to speed communications. Even though the VIPedge phone system is in the cloud, it knows who’s busy and who’s available, so you know when you can connect.
These features work with most Apple and Android platform mobile devices, including Apple iOS versions 5 and 6, Motorola Droid, Sony Xperia™ and Samsung Galaxy, among others. But only when you want them to. When the app isn’t activated, your smartphone performs just like itself, with its native features, contacts and voice mail.
For its ability to improve customer care and collaboration in a BYOD world, Call Manager Mobile caught the attention of the editors at CUSTOMER magazine, who named it a 2014 Product of the Year.
“Toshiba’s Call Manager Mobile unified communications mobility solution has proven deserving of this elite status, and I look forward to continued innovation from Toshiba in 2014 and beyond,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of the magazine’s parent company, TMC.
If you’re part of the smartphone majority, take advantage. Download the free Call Manager Mobile app (or IPMobility for IPedge®and Strata® CIX™ systems) from the Apple App Store or Google Play App Store.
