SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 5, 2012) - Zultys, a premier provider of innovative unified communications solutions that empower businesses to collaborate effectively, today unveiled the next release of its Zultys Mobile Communicator. Now available for download at the Apple App Store, the Zultys Mobile Communicator 2.0 adds an integrated SIP softphone to leverage Wi-Fi. This effectively reduces communications costs while continuing to provide remote and mobile users access to Zultys' Unified Communications (UC) phone system features that ensure increased productivity for employees working outside the office.
Since its introduction to the market, Zultys Mobile Communicator has been met with enthusiasm from Android, Blackberry and iPhone users alike, its main draw being an ability to transform these smartphones into fully featured business phones. Now, Zultys Mobile Communicator 2.0 for iPhone and iPad addresses another costly challenge all remote and mobile workers face: roaming and international charges outside of service coverage areas, overage fees associated with exceeding a monthly minutes allotment and even no cell phone service where Wi-Fi is available. This release adds an integrated SIP softphone that enables users to make and receive calls through their Zultys IP-PBX/UC system over a Wi-Fi connection, and it works on both iPhone and iPad. By leveraging Wi-Fi, iPhone and iPad users can move calls and downloads off their mobile carrier networks onto a low-cost Wi-Fi and data network, saving their employers from high communications costs and also taking advantage of Wi-Fi's performance benefits.
In addition to new Wi-Fi capability, Zultys Mobile Communicator 2.0 includes all the same features and functionality its smartphone users have come to love, such as secure chat/IM; real-time, integrated presence and presence notes; and corporate directory access, single-number contact and extension dialing, and more. This is all available with no requirements for additional hardware or third-party applications.
"Zultys Mobile Communicator 2.0 is the best choice for large and small companies that are looking to reduce call costs, while delivering a feature-rich UC experience to their mobile staff," said Steve Francis, chief sales and marketing officer, Zultys. "With this release, we continue to raise the bar in the industry, addressing today's business challenges with innovative and cost-effective solutions."
Zultys Mobile Communicator 2.0 is now available for download from the Apple App Store. A mobile access license from Zultys is required. Existing Zultys Mobile Communicator for iPhone users may upgrade via the Apple App Store. (Their MX system must be running MX Release 7.0 firmware or later.)
