BT has launched BT One Voice anywhere, a voice application service that can save people with roaming services some money, the leading providers of communications services and solutions announced on Thursday (14 June).
According to BT, the new app offers flexibility for global travelling employees by allowing them to take their telephony with them via a "softphone" and use speech to text voicemail translation.
Moreover, One Voice anywhere helps to significantly reduce spending on mobile roaming costs through access to the corporate virtual private network (VPN), said BT in a statement.
The app can be downloaded as an app for the Blackberry, iPhone, iPad, Android OS phone and tablet devices.
"The One Voice anywhere enterprise app suits corporate users as they increasingly use their smartphones for business voice calls," said Kevin Taylor, president BT Asia Pacific. "We understand that roaming mobile costs continues to be a huge cost challenge. Our customers will be delighted with this innovative new service as this will help optimise costs since businesses are charged as employees roam, retrieve voicemails and accept incoming calls, especially for international travellers."
One Voice anywhere can integrate with new IP based platforms as well as older communications systems and allows a transparent, feature rich, fully managed and integrated UCC environment. In addition, One Voice anywhere is delivered from the cloud, and is embedded in the enterprise grade VPN solution, so there are no heavy upfront investments or on premise equipment required, said BT.
