estos has completely revised the unified messaging server
Unified messaging for large projects and companies with distributed locations – estos releases ixi-UMS Enterprise in the completely revised version 7. The Starnberg-based software manufacturer has incorporated more convenience for users and easier options for companies with different locations. “The new features in the voice mailbox, the user portal and the client tools are of particular benefit to users”, explains Bernd Kattner, Product Manager at estos. “In the kernel of the software, the new version offers companies spread over multiple locations the possibility to implement MultiSite scenarios more easily”. In principle, ixi-UMS combines all messages – fax, voice and SMS – under the familiar e-mail interface. Users receive, send and process their UM messages like e-mails, for example, with Microsoft Outlook.
“Hi, I’m not here, just leave me a message and I’ll get back to you.” The software-based answering machine now offers the possibility to store special announcements for colleagues. The variant for external callers could sound like this, “Good afternoon, this is the answering machine of Bernd Kattner, estos GmbH. Please leave a message and I’ll call you back.” Users can now record announcements via headset, laptop microphone or in writing. The text is translated into speech via a text-to-speech engine.
In version 7 of ixi-UMS Enterprise, the new user portal combines the configuration for the voice mailbox, the web journal and the user settings, all under a single interface. Users get an overview of their authorizations and incoming and outgoing messages. Likewise, they can also manage their profile settings and announcements here. With just one click, directly from Pro Call 7 Enterprise, for example, they can access their user portal.
The SMTP client included in the client tools now provides an integrated address book. This allows users to conveniently address their messages – fax, voice message or SMS. Secure transmission is ensured by the newly integrated TLS encryption.
Optimal message routing in networked or distributed PBXs can now be set up even more easily: estos has revised the ixi-UMS 7 Enterprise kernel, among other things, with regard to MultiSite scenarios.
