ShoreTel Inc. announced Tuesday that its new M5 cloud division is offering ShoreTel Mobility, extending the UC capability to subscribers’ mobile devices.
The initial launch will support iPhones and subsequent releases over the summer will add support for other smartphone and tablet devices including Android and Blackberry.
ShoreTel Mobility is based on the platform the company acquired in 2010 from Agito Networks.
In addition to leveraging UC desktop features on their mobile devices, users have the ability to separate business and personal use. Business calls to and from any ShoreTel Mobility user are made using their business phone number, not their personal mobile number. This means corporate identity is maintained and the company, not the employee, owns the contact relationship. Employees no longer need to reveal personal mobile phone numbers and can instantly tell if an incoming call to the mobile device is personal or work related.
