Keeping mobile employees connected and productive—with all the productivity and convenience features of their desktop phones
The professor holds “virtual office hours” from the library, dining hall and faculty club—anywhere on campus—while all his departmental office phone features follow him. Nurses and physicians are constantly on the go but never out of touch, thanks to wireless phones that get clear reception everywhere in the medical complex.
The product manager splits his time between office, test lab, customer center and conference rooms—but his full-featured communications services follow him everywhere. The sales manager stays fully in touch with his team, accessible by four-digit dialing and one voice mail account, even though today the office is an airport drop-in workspace.
The Business Advantages of Wireless Networking
The Information Age economy is fueled by ideas and innovation, creativity and collaboration. These elements are not tethered to location, so why should the communications of business be tethered to a desk? Wireless communication capabilities enable communications to go where the work goes, to keep workers productive and connected throughout the building, across campus, or anywhere within the reach of a connection into your wireless local area network (WLAN).
This is more than just having a cell phone so you can make calls from the road. This is having all your desktop communication features, settings and preferences follow you, for all the convenience and productivity you have at the desk. Four-digit dialing, outbound calls, caller ID, call transfer, automatic call distribution, centralized attendant services, simultaneous ringing, messages, call detail recordingâ€¦ these features and more follow the mobile user on wireless devices.
Get the advantages of virtual communications for your organization
If you have a Toshiba Strata® CIX™ communications system and wireless LAN, you have very cost-effective mobility options that scale to suit your organization’s size and mobility requirements.
For the freedom to roam anywhere in the buildingâ€¦
Toshiba Cordless Digital Telephones enable you to take full digital desk phone functionality with you—down the hall, to a conference room or across campus. The cordless phone emulates the desk phone, so you do not lose functionality while away from your desk. You can access today’s most advanced desk phone features, such as desk phone extension numbers, call forwarding, caller ID and multi-line access. You can even switch between your cordless and digital desk telephones during a call. Thanks to spread-spectrum and narrow band technologies, Toshiba Cordless Digital Telephones safeguard your phone’s frequency range and deliver maximum security.
To take your desktop communications features anywhere across campusâ€¦
Toshiba’s relationship with Polycom® provides SpectraLink Wireless Telephones for wider coverage than digital cordless phones across the enterprise. Polycom offers a complete portfolio of wireless phones that operate within your facility’s micro-cellular architecture or over your wireless local area network (WLAN)—fully integrated with Toshiba Strata communication systems. You can leverage your existing investment by converging voice and data applications on the same WLAN.
To have all your desktop telephone features follow you at home or on the roadâ€¦
Stay connected using a wireless IP telephone or a laptop, tablet PC or PDA equipped with Toshiba SoftIPT software to perform as an IP “soft phone.” You can roam anywhere your WLAN provides coverage and, with a SoftIPT device, anywhere you can access your WLAN via the Internet.
To integrate the power of the PC into wireless communicationsâ€¦
Enhance the wireless connection with Toshiba Net Phone call control from your PC. Net Phone empowers your PC to dial, answer, transfer calls and more, using your mouse without ever picking up the telephone. Computer-telephony integration also enables the PC to pop up information from customer relationship management programs such as Act, Goldmine and Outlook. Use your PC for chat instant messaging, broadcasting messages to multiple users, and simultaneous chat sessions. Presence capabilities allow you to see the current status of coworkers and who’s available. Quickly transmit important information and best serve customers through an easy, intuitive interface and wireless connection.
For another option to take desktop phone features with you on an IP phone or soft phoneâ€¦
Take advantage of IP User Mobility with Toshiba Strata® CIX IP business communication systems. IP User Mobility enables a user’s identity—one directory number with all associated privileges, preferences and features—follow that user anywhere within the reach of an IP connection, wired or wireless.
To connect your cell phone and desktop phoneâ€¦
Toshiba delivers “twinning” capability via the FeatureFlex® Personal Call Handler, which rings your desk phone and cell phone simultaneously to ensure you can always be reached. You have a number of choices for handling incoming calls, including schedule-based call handling, caller-based call handling, and various sequential and simultaneous ring options.
Mobility is essential to staying connected to your customers and your teamâ€¦ to being as productive away from your desk as when you are at your deskâ€¦ to being as easy to reach. If your organization isn’t taking advantage of proven mobility solutions, it’s time to take a closer look at how easy and affordable wireless has become.
