Vertical Communications (News - Alert), a provider of business communications solutions, has released the Android version of its Wave v3.0 software.
Officials with Vertical Communications said that the release features the company’s ViewPoint Mobile application, which is considered the industry’s only enterprise mobility solution that is delivered as a standard feature within a core communications system.
According to company officials, ViewPoint Mobile extends all premise-based enterprise services and tools such as unified communications, collaboration, presence management, call recording, telephony and market-specific applications, to smartphones and tablets.
The Android version (for devices running versions 2.3 and above) follows the release of ViewPoint Mobile for Apple (News - Alert) iOS devices in May.
"Businesses are becoming more sophisticated in how they use personnel in the field. As a result, they have a growing need to ensure that mobile team members have unfettered access to all workplace communications tools,” said Peter Bailey, chief executive officer of Vertical, in a statement.
Bailey said that the release of the Android (News - Alert) version of the Wave 3.0 software is another significant step in the company’s efforts to deliver a seamless communications experience to field-based personnel.
He said that through ViewPoint Mobile, organizations of all sizes can maintain the highest levels of productivity and efficiency across the entire organization.
“The release of the Android version of ViewPoint Mobile underscores Vertical Communications’ ability to extend powerful enterprise communications functionality to mobile users through the devices of their choice,” said Frank Stinson (News - Alert), partner and senior analyst at Intellicom Analytics, a New Jersey-based market research firm.
Stinson said that as businesses look to improve the performance of the mobile workforce, ViewPoint Mobile will be well positioned to help customers achieve this objective with minimal incremental cost and implementation disruption.
“Our Android customers will be very pleased with the intuitive nature of ViewPoint Mobile,” explained Bobby Mohanty, vice president of engineering and product management, Vertical.
“The look and feel of the application is similar to the other features they currently enjoy on their Android phones and tablets. We expect that users will quickly appreciate the ability to use all their premise-based tools while in the field,” said Mohanty.
