Jaduka Upgrades Earthcaller PC-to-Phone Service
By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor
According to the company, improvements to Earthcaller include: a stylized interface making it easier to use; one-click dialing via Earthcaller Speed Dial; a network speed test to confirm the Internet connection speed and ensure high quality calls; storage of frequently called numbers in Jaduka Lans’ Contacts list; a microphone and headset volume check; and a single sign-in for access to other Jaduka Labs applications and widgets.
To differentiate itself from other PC-to-phone services, Earthcaller works right from the Internet browser and there is no software download required. Earthcaller instead takes advantage of Microsoft’s (News - Alert) Active X technology, which requires an MS Internet Explorer browser to utilize the service. Users can also continue surfing the Web while talking via Earthcaller.
Jaduka officials say their tools are designed to help customers to harness communications and technologies that create more effective business operations. With its developer-friendly, SOAP-based Web Services API, applications can trigger individual or group telephone calls, provide automated alerts, and manage surveys and other digital files, while also administering account information and transaction history for a variety of applications.
The reference to the world being small is really true in terms of business. When it comes to making a phone call to another country, the charges reflect just how big the world really is. To combat this cost and provide business travelers and other consumers with a better option for international calling, Jaduka is delivering a better option with enhanced features, company officials say.
