Konftel is enabling more of its products to be controlled via the company's mobile app. The expansion will include the Konftel 300Mx and Konftel 300Wx conference phones.
Instead of keying phone numbers and meeting codes into the conference phone at the start of a remote meeting, the app enables everyone to use the contacts and calendar on their own smartphone, while still benefiting from the conference phone's sound and features.
By entering meeting codes and phone numbers when the meeting is booked and the invitations go out, the meeting participants can then use the app to launch a conference call on a Konftel phone with just one tap – this is what Konftel calls One Touch Conferencing. The feature is already included with the Konftel 300IPx phone, but now the Konftel 300Mx and Konftel 300Wx models will also be able to use the Konftel Unite app via an adapter. The adapter is inserted into the conference phone's SD card slot.
Peter Renkel, CEO of Konftel said, "the mobile phone is a vital tool for everyone in business today. We keep all our business contacts and colleagues' phone numbers on them, but we still want professional sound and all the functions of the conference phone at our fingertips during a remote meeting. Now we have a solution."
Tommy Edlund, Director of Global Sales added, "we first launched the mobile app for our Konftel 300IPx conference phone and it was so well received that we're now looking to roll it out more widely. With a simple adapter, our free mobile app is now also available for our wireless Konftel 300Wx and Konftel 300Mx*, the only mobile conference phones in the world.
“Our Konftel 300Wx phone has sold incredibly well in the USA, so I'm sure this new innovation will prove a big hit over there. We know that many people want to be able to control the conference phone via their smartphone and use their personal contacts and calendars with the conference phone."
Konftel Unite adapter features:
- The adapter creates a wireless connection between the Konftel Unite app and the conference phone via BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy). The connection is only used to control the conference phone. There is no audio transfer via Bluetooth.
- The conference phone makes calls and communicates the same way as before, without affecting the user's mobile phone.
