Fonality® Unveils New Features for Its Cloud Communications IP PBX and VoIP Phone Product Lines

Innovative Features Mobilize the Workforce, Provide Cost Controls and Boost Call Center Efficiencies for Businesses

CULVER CITY, CA--(Marketwire - August 24, 2010) -  Fonality, Inc. (, a leading provider of cloud-based business phone and unified communication solutions, today announced new innovative product and software enhancements to its line of IP telephony solutions. Available for businesses of all sizes, Fonality provides a business phone system that is flexible, easy to install, manage, and dramatically reduces costs and increases productivity for companies.

Fonality's cloud-based solutions include Fonality Connect, Fonality Professional and Fonality Enterprise. Each solution takes advantage of Fonality's latest software release, version 2010.1. This release allows businesses with call centers to optimize the caller experience across multiple locations, ensuring local and remote supervisors and agents have full access to Fonality's features. A new time zone capability dynamically ensures user data is accurate to local time zones, eliminating confusion while simplifying record keeping. Additionally, 2010.1 supports toll restriction, which gives businesses more control over monthly telephone service expenditures by allowing administrators to limit calling rights to employees.

HUD, Fonality's unified communications suite, merges all communications into one, easy-to-use dashboard for the Mac or PC. With the new release, HUD allows multiple sites to act as one: employees in multiple locations can see the status of their colleagues, chat with associates, transfer calls or start an instant conference. Employees, regardless of location, can easily find one another by searching by name or role, encouraging communication across departments and locations.

"Business owners, from start-ups to enterprises, desire effective, affordable, no-hassle solutions for their employees' communications needs," said Dean Mansfield, CEO of Fonality. "Fonality's latest cloud communications release offers powerful features and helps businesses control phone system costs."

The new release also adds functionality designed to save businesses money on their communications costs. Now, a user-based licensing model enables features to be added per employee, saving businesses countless dollars by charging for only the necessary features.
