Although some may consider wearable technology as closer to ‘bleeding edge’ than ‘cutting’ edge, this is a market that must addressed. ShoreTel is the first UC business phone supplier to introduce an application for the Apple Watch.
So what exactly does having the ShoreTel phone app on your new Apple watch do for you? It makes handling company communications easier. For example, 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.
ShoreTel Mobility on the Apple Watch allows users to:
Easily access their corporate favorite contacts with initiation of an enterprise call across WiFi, cellular or cellular data
Re-dial a missed enterprise call
View and respond to secure corporate instant messaging lightning-fast by selecting from a predefined set of responses or by speaking into the Apple Watch
Answer or reject an incoming enterprise call
View and update enterprise presence
