StarPhone provides excellent on-the-go connectivity with the added bonus of excellent presence tools.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Star2Star Communications, makers of “The World’s Most Complete Communications Solution”, today announced the new StarPhone IP softphone client for the Apple iPhone.
StarPhone combines a full-featured IP telephone application with advanced presence and voicemail tools. The result is an easy-to-use, go-anywhere softphone that allows users to place and receive calls using any Star2Star telephone system.
“For years, businesses have been searching for a simple, cost-effective way to make employees more reachable”, said Norman Worthington, CEO of Star2Star. “StarPhone provides excellent on-the-go connectivity with the added bonus of excellent presence tools”, he continued.
StarPhone users appear on the Star2Star system as standard extensions, with access to all Star2Star system features. Calls to other extensions can be made using the Softphone’s built-in dialing directory, or the user can enter any 3- or 5-digit extension number. Outbound calls made from the softphone travel over the IP data network, and are not billed for airtime as cellular calls.
Calls can be made and received over virtually any IP network, including public WiFi hotspots. If no WiFi is available, calls can be placed and received using the phone’s 3G or 4G data connection. Users can take advantage of Star2Star’s powerful Find Me / Follow Me call routing to automatically send calls to their softphone after a pre-determined number of rings.
StarPhone provides users with these features:
- Presence Indicator: Color coded display shows availability and status of other users
- StarPhone is tightly integrated with Star2Star’s StarScope 2 presence monitoring tool
- Favorites List for frequently-called numbers with one-touch dialing, or use the iPhone Contacts list for calls outside your organization
- Voicemail inbox with one-touch access to voicemail
- Call Transfer
- Conference Calling
- Calls can be placed over WiFi and 3G/4G Networks
StarPhone is available from the iPhone App Store.
