As one of BroadConnect's favourite Unified Communication tools of choice, the following is a breakdown of the new additions and updates to BroadSoft's UC-One conferencing application for 2015. These include both group and individual capabilities that improve productivity, and revisions to the user interface. The UC-One app combines video,voice,call logs,business directories, instant messaging and presence on an individual interface, and is suitable for both one-to-one and group communications; regardless of the user's chosen mobile device or type of connectivity.
The new UC-One app additions that enhance group collaboration include updates to â€˜My Room', which allows users to meet in virtual chat rooms in order to chat, share files and talk without it being necessary to send intricate, written instructions. â€˜My Room' now includes moderator controls and video conferencing, which both guarantee the efficient sharing of information and promote quick decision making. In addition, external visitors can now participate in â€˜My Room' via group instant messaging, video and audio conferencing and sharing capabilities.
The new UC-One app additions that enhance individual productivity include â€˜iBeacon' integration; the industry's first integration with Apple devices. â€˜iBeacon' more accurately identifies an individual's location within the workplace, for example; the conference room.This enables colleagues to choose the most efficient communication option. The new UC-One app also features a new personal assistant feature which integrates a worker's availability with voice calling. This can be controlled fully from within the user's UC-One app; it informs callers if someone is unavailable and gives advice with regard to the best times to contact them.
