made news in August when it announced
that it had added new features and capabilities to its flagship unified communications solution, Zeacom Communications Centre, geared to improve collaboration and boost productivity for corporate workers.
Service Pack 3 for Version 5.0 includes a new Executive Mobile module that lets corporate workers easily synchronize their desktop/desk phone with their mobile devices, including the BlackBerry (News
) and Microsoft Windows Mobile smartphones. This way, mobile workers can access the corporate directory and view the presence, or availability status, of others on the network, including other mobile workers. In addition they can manage their own presence, indicating, for example, whether they are “away;” “available;” only available to certain users; or only available through specified modes of contact, such as email, chat or phone.
The new software also sports a visual voicemail feature that lets users view their voicemails in list form on their mobile device’s screen. This lets mobile workers prioritize voicemails by order of importance. The user simply clicks on the voicemail he or she wants to listen to. This saves time as the user no longer has to dial in to a voicemail box and slog through all the audio messages in chronological order.
