For years, businesses have been searching for a simple, cost-effective way to make employees more reachable. Until now, the only viable solution was to give key employees a mobile phone. But if not managed carefully, mobile phones add cost and complexity.
Star2Star's StarPhone leverages your company's existing investment in Smartphones without requiring an increase in expensive cellular talk time. Since softphone calls are carried over the IP data network, most users will find that they don't need as many cellular minutes. This can result in a significant cost savings.
The Star2Star Mobile Softphone for iPhone provides users with these features:
• Presence Indicator: Users show as Green for available, Red for Busy, Yellow for ringing and Blue for dialing
• Favorites List for frequently-called numbers with one-touch dialing
• iPhone Contacts list for calls outside your organization
• Voicemail inbox with one-touch access to voicemail
• Call Transfer
• Conference Calling
• User Authentication
• Push Notification for incoming call and voicemail
StarPhone users appear on their office's Star2Star system as standard extensions. Calls to other extensions can be made using the Softphone's built-in dialing directory, or the user can enter any office extension number. Outbound calls made from the softphone travel over the IP data network, and are not billed for airtime as cellular calls.
With Star2Star's sophisticated Find Me / Follow Me roaming, callers only need to know one number to reach any employee in your organization. StarPhone brings the power, reliability, and flexibility of the award-winning Star2Star communications system to your iPhone. It combines a full-featured IP telephone application with advanced presence and voicemail tools. The result is an easy-to-use softphone that allows users to place and receive calls using your company's Star2Star telephone system.
Star2star's app is not a replacement for your cellular service. You may not be able to make emergency (e.g. 911) calls using the app. If you attempt to make a 911 call from the app while using a device that has been enabled with a native or cell phone application, the app will close and the emergency call will be placed over the native or cell phone application through your cellular carrier's network. If you attempt to make a 911 call using the app from a device that is not enabled with a native or cell phone application and you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, your call may be routed to a different dispatcher from that used for traditional 911 dialing. In addition, you will be charged a fee of seventy-five dollars ($75.00) per incident. If you attempt to make a 911 call using the app from a device with no connectivity to either cellular service or Wi-Fi, the app will close and your 911 call will not be placed.
