The wearable technology revolution is only beginning with the Apple Watch being the latest invention to catwalk with feverish aplomb onto the tech runway.  ShoreTel is now making an appearance alongside with its own UC Mobility app created especially for the Apple Watch. This innovation is among the first UC applications for the Apple Watch by a unified communications (UC) solutions provider.   ShoreTel Mobility is already enabling businesses to integrate iPhones and iPads into a total (UC) unified communications network for the enterprise and this latest innovation extends that paradigm.

Dick Tracy’s Watch is Here

The Apple Watch is inspired by the classic comic book detective Dick Tracy’s two-way radio watch.  Once only a cartoon daydream — a futuristic personal and professional appliance, the future has arrived.  Now, anyone can talk into their watch while rushing to a meeting or just ambling along the sidewalk.   Of course, they can now do a whole lot more than that!

Communicate and Collaborate with a Tap

While the Apple Watch does not replace the iPhone, it does augment it and allows the wearer to leave the phone in their pocket a lot more of the time.  The ShoreTel UC Mobility client will now extend enterprise desk phone features and Unified Communication collaboration into the Apple Watch so that conferences can be initiated, notifications seen, presence detected and updated, and enterprise calls initiated or re-dialed.  Incoming calls can be identified and action taken; enterprise messages can be easily accessed from the Apple Watch using ShoreTel Mobility.  Now, even while sprinting to catch a meeting after taking a plane to the other side of the world, a user can be notified of an important conference call and be dialed-in and authenticated with a simple tap on their watch!   Collaboration and communication for business has never been more convenient or powerful.

Extending ShoreTel Mobility to the Apple Watch Saves your Business Time

The addition of Unified Communication and Collaboration (UCC) capabilities to the Apple Watch will enable wearable technology to step into the world of enterprise communications seamlessly.  Perhaps ShoreTel’s VP of Product Management Pejman Roshan said it best, “By extending ShoreTel Mobility to the wrist, accessing your enterprise UC System is literally as simple as checking the time. “   Do contact us here at streamWrite to find out more.
