According to Shane Massey, network system administrator and support specialist for Improve Group, a network storage technologies provider based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, ViewPoint Mobile is already having a profound impact on the company's operations and efficiency.
"Our sales people out on the field are absolutely thrilled with this technology," he explained. "The fact that their iPhones and iPads serve as extensions of our office phone system gives them the confidence that they'll not just receive important client calls, but can also easily access key applications and features within our system, In addition, every outbound call initiated through ViewPoint Mobile includes Improve Group's caller ID, further enhancing the transparency and professionalism of the organization."
"Vertical Communications has a well-deserved reputation for delivering powerful and innovative communications technologies that can be easily accessed by customers," said Robert Arnold, program manager for Frost & Sullivan's unified communications and collaboration practice.
"ViewPoint Mobile continues this heritage by giving businesses a very attractive, practical and cost-effective vehicle to extend rich communications functionalities to all users across the enterprise," he added. "The functionality, flexibility and value that's inherent in ViewPoint Mobile should resonate with businesses who need to maintain efficient communications with remote and mobile workforces."
