Unified Communicator for iOS

Unified Communicator is an application for iOS mobile phones and tablets that connects to a ucplus server enabling dialing and collaboration features between mobile and office users of ucplus.

Dialling Features

  • Outbound from the mobile phone
  • Calling from shared corporate address book

Key Benefits

  • Call colleagues directly in the office even if they do not have a DDI (Direct Dial Inward) number
  • Many mobile phone call plans allow for one or more pre-nominated landline numbers to be included in the mobile bundle, effectively making them free of charge.
  • If the DDI number associated with the Dial Through (or Auto-Attendant) feature of the office telephone system is nominated as such, then all users of Unified Communicator can call office extensions free of charge.
  • Reduce mobile phone charges by using the convenience of dialling from a mobile device but forcing the call through the telephone system.
  • If the mobile phone dials external numbers via the office telephone system then calls can be made at the rates associated with the telephone system not the mobile handset. These rates can be significantly cheaper than the cost of a direct mobile call, especially for international calls.
  • The call is also subject to the rules of the phone system such as call barring or recording and reporting.
  • Accessing the Unified Communicator shared address book allows the mobile user to quickly access and call important external contacts without needing to store each number in the mobile phone contacts list.

Collaboration Benefits

  • Check status of colleagues before calling them
  • Update colleagues of your availability from your mobile device
  • Remotely set destination of incoming office calls (for example to a home phone). This could be useful if your mobile device is low on power or you want to reduce the cost of the redirected call.
