Features and Benefits


Collaborate in real time, without boundaries

With an increasingly mobile workforce, IP Office allows your workforce to stay in touch and accessible even while way from desks. Employees who travel as part of their job can remain in contact via mobile devices wherever they are in the world. IP Office enables employees to hold video calls with colleagues and customers from their desks or while mobile. They can keep business and operations moving using IM, presence, full call control, conferencing, and more via a range of devices.

Improve responsiveness to customers

When it comes to customer service, IP Office enables customers to contact the right person regardless of whether they are in or out of the office. Multi-layered automated attendants, and mobility applications speed up interactions. This makes for better customer service and a more personalised approach as customers and clients are able to get connected and talk directly. This is achieved through integration with desktop applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Lync, and salesforce.com.

As a growing business, IP Office is the most cost-effective solution for you. Simply upgrade your software or add new hardware. This negates the need for more major investment in new systems.

Get great value for your investment

IP Office really has it covered. It has a built-in, secure 128-party conference bridge and this can be added to with features such as call recording, automated attendants, voice mail, voice-mail-to-email integration, and video conferencing options. It also offers advanced unified communications capabilities for presence status, IM, mobile call control and conferencing. And it is versatile, IP Office integrates with desktop applications as well as individual devices such as smart phones and tablets.

Energy efficiency and saving the pennies is all important today and IP Office lets you save with the most energy-efficient desk phones, a built-in 128-party conference bridge (if you're paying a monthly fee for conferencing, spend no more) and call recording. You can save up to 60 per cent of your original investment if you upgrade from Avaya MERLIN®, PARTNER® ACS, Business Communication Manager, or Norstar.

Rely on resiliency

Take advantage of intelligent failover between sites. Or, for single location deployments, easily add a redundant server. Without the need for internal fans or hard drives, IP Office delivers a mean time between failures of 68 years.

Simplify system management

IP Office allows you to manage multiple sites from a single interface simply by using drag-and-drop system management tools. This means you can make a bespoke package for each employee by giving them the communications features they need with applications designed for mobile, office, and teleworkers.

User application

- Power User
Keeping all communications in one place – the users control their office communications using an IP phone, cell phone or laptop. All their messages, whether voice, email or fax appear in a single inbox, and users are automatically notified of important messages. This system also gives a user the capability of holding a conference call while on the move, with participants able to dial in from mobile and desk phones.

- Mobile Worker
No matter how mobile the worker, IP Office allows the mobile phone to become an extension of the office. The user doesn’t need to use his or her personal phone to receive customer calls, the mobile phone becomes an extension of the office phone system complete with call handling features and speed dials.

- Office Worker
Making life in the office easy to manage, these communication tools help desk-based workers answer questions and convey critical information. Using a single, easy-to-use interface the worker can manage conferencing, check the status of co-workers (see who's on the phone, away, or on "do not disturb"), and for messaging, speed dial and IM.

- Teleworker
This allows teleworkers to connect to the office and enjoy the office functionality wherever they are in the world. The teleworker has the same phone and attendant features as if they are in the office, but the system allows users to work anywhere in the world, giving them freedom to work from anywhere and allowing you to employ the best talent and save money.

- Receptionist
Easy point and click call controls, status displays and incoming calls on the PC screen and integration with commonly used database software, this system streamlines reception and makes the whole process of initial communications far more efficient. The system also helps rationalise offices. One receptionist can monitor all office extensions and provide coverage for multiple offices.

- Customer Service Supervisor
This monitoring and reporting application lets small businesses track and measure interactions and productivity in customer sales and service. Get reports to manage your sales activities, judge the value of marketing campaigns, and see how well agents are handling customer calls.

- Customer Service Agent
This browser-based client gives agents vital information which informs the user’s decision-making. The browser contains information about the number of calls on hold, in progress, or lost, as well as the number of agents logged in and logged out. If no calls are waiting to be answered, an agent can spend more time with the current caller, helping to increase revenue and customer satisfaction.
