Unified Communications Service Provider SimpleSignal Partners With gUnify to Launch New IP Voice Integration For Gmail and Other CRM Applications

Las Vegas, NV and Denver, CO, Feb 28, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- SimpleSignal, the leading cloud-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) provider for business, today announced a new integration using gUnify, a service that allows Google Apps users to seamlessly use SimpleSignal's hosted PBX from within their Gmail and Google Apps user interface. The service supports integrations with cloud solutions such as Salesforce, Zoho, Apptivo and Clio, and is deployable in minutes via the Google Apps domain control panel. There is no software, plugins or hardware required.

The gUnify service gives users the ability to click to call from within their Google Apps (Google Mail, Google Calendar, Google Talk, Google Contacts). The service calls their SimpleSignal deskphone or mobile phone and connects the call.

Other key features include: Logging: Voice communication activities (Call Duration, Date, Time, Notes, Contact Information) can then be logged directly and automatically to business application software such as CRM and project management apps.

Presence: The presence feature lets co-workers and managers know users are on the phone by automatically turning their Google chat status to red when they're on the phone.

Contact Sync: automatically identifies telephone numbers from within Google Apps that are not associated with users' Google contacts, allowing them to quickly identify the missing information from their Google Apps contact database.

Conference Calling: Users can schedule all of their conference calls right from within Gmail to their Google Calendar.

"At SimpleSignal we're committed to providing voice integrations with all popular SaaS products and gUnify is a big part of helping us make that happen," said Michael Sterl, EVP of Sales for SimpleSignal. He added, "Google Apps is obviously one of the biggest SaaS offerings on the market and this was a really critical integration for us."

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
