Madison, Wisconsin (PRWEB) June 07, 2011
Singlewire Software, LLC, (http://www.singlewire.com) today announced the release of several free applications for use on most models of Cisco IP phones. These applications offer helpful answers to commonly asked questions such as currency conversion, local time, and local weather.
Users of Cisco IP phones can access the applications by simply pushing the Applications or Services button on their phone and choosing from a list of configured services. The phone keypad is used to enter specific request information like a ZIP code for current weather, or an area code number to display name of a city.
“These Cisco phone applications are a great way for organizations to provide additional real-time information and resources to employees,” states Jerry Steinhauer (CCIE #12504), Chief Technical Officer at Singlewire Software. “The applications are easy to implement, configure, and use.”
The list of current applications offered includes: local weather information, a stock ticker, area code look-up, a world clock, and a currency converter. Additional applications will be introduced in the future.
Phone administrators need to simply create a phone service with the provided URL and assign the service to their organization’s phones. Administration should be done by individuals familiar with configuring Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) or Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (CME). Instructions can be downloaded from the Singlewire website at http://www.singlewire.com/free-xml-apps.html, and are offered on good faith to anyone who is interested in using them. There is no technical support offered for the free applications.
In addition to making these free applications available, Singlewire Software also creates and sells a host of voice applications for use with Cisco Unified Communications, including InformaCast. InformaCast is a full-featured, network-based mass notification, emergency communication, and overhead paging system that allows users to simultaneously send an audio and/or text message to a variety of endpoints including IP speakers, Cisco IP phones, overhead paging systems, computer desktops, digital signage, SMS text, social media sites, and more. InformaCast can also be used to send bell tones for passing bells in K-12 schools and shift changes in manufacturing environments.
Singlewire InformaCast can be ordered directly through Singlewire or through our registered partners.
