Are there business partners with whom you work more intensively than with your colleagues?
Then you should be able to communicate with them just as easily!
Thanks to XPhone Federation, you can also chat with external contacts and share your presence status.
No company is an island. There are important customers you want to support quickly and easily. And suppliers from whom you regularly need fast answers.
With XPhone, both is easier than ever! Thanks to Federation, you can also chat with external contacts and exchange your presence status.
Your winnings? A clear communication, where you never waste time again by phoning into the void. Not only can you see whether your business partner is in a meeting or not, you can also let XPhone automatically inform you as soon as he's available again. And if that takes longer, a short chat message with a callback request is all you need.
With XPhone, you only need one thing for the perfect match: the IM address of your contact person. As soon as you create a new contact with an IM address, a Federation request* is automatically sent to the contact. Your contact only has to confirm the request and you can start!
Federation requests that are sent to you can be found in the client under "Requests": If the contact is already known based on his IM address, he will be displayed directly with his name. When replying you can decide whether to share your presence status and whether to add the contact to a specific contact group.
*Prerequisite is that the requested server accepts the XPhone Connect Server's connection request.
How and with whom you want to federate is of course up to you. Basically you can choose between two ways of server-to-server connection:
Whatever you decide: Thanks to MTLS encryption, you are always on the safe side.
All requests you receive from external contacts are clearly summarised in the client next to your contacts. New requests are signalled with a badge, so that no contact is lost.
So that you can always keep an eye on which requests are still outstanding, even with many contact requests, these are sorted according to "open" and "processed contact requests". If necessary, you can change your permissions here – just like in the contact itself.
Depending on the department and task, your employees need different tools: Marketing would have a hard time getting along without graphics software, your service needs a ticket system and where would sales be without CRM?
The same can apply to your communication solution. You're using Skype for Business across your company, but don't see the point of an expensive landline connection via PSTN?
Then a mixed deployment of Skype for Business and XPhone Connect may be the perfect solution for you. Communication-intensive departments benefit not only from the free connection to the pbx system, but also from functions such as the Dashboard, which makes all relevant caller data, which is buried deep in the ERP or CRM system, available directly in the client. Or TeamDesk, which allows you to set up hotlines and ensure optimum accessibility to Sales, Service & Co.
Thanks to Federation, all employees are part of a common communication solution, even if you decide on a mixed operation.
Your winnings? You don't waste money or miss a chance. Every employee gets exactly the software he needs for his work.
