ShoreTel has today announced that ShoreTel Mobility is among the first UC applications available for the Apple Watch. ShoreTel Mobility is a software application that enables businesses to integrate iPhones and iPads with their existing enterprise phone systems, bringing mobile workers the same productivity-boosting features that unify communications for workers in the office.
“Wearable technology is a fascinating frontier for the mobile professional. ShoreTel is leading the way by delivering the extensive UC capabilities of ShoreTel Mobility via its new app for the Apple Watch,” said Pejman Roshan, vice president of product management at ShoreTel. “By extending ShoreTel Mobility to the wrist, accessing your enterprise UC system is literally as simple as checking the time. This is emblematic of our commitment to providing an unrivaled experience to our users.”
Apple Watch owners can stay connected with ShoreTel Mobility on the go, without taking their iPhone from their pocket. The smartly designed ShoreTel Mobility home screen on the watch allows users to access commonly used UC functions, such as viewing any unread instant messages, accessing favorites, and joining a meeting. For instance, when weaving through a crowded airport, the app will deliver a notification on the user’s wrist for when a conference call is about to begin, and with one simple tap, the user is automatically dialled-in, authenticated and ready to participate on the call or video.
The Glance view reveals ShoreTel Availability State, missed call and IM indicators, as well as Notifications alerts, and allows the user to act on incoming calls and messages.
