M5 Networks Expands Its Unified Communications and Mobility Offering With The M5 Softphone

    New York, NY (October 6, 2011) — M5 Networks (www.shoretelsky.com), the market leader in business phone systems, announced today the launch of the M5 Softphone, software that lets users manage their telephone calls over the M5 network from a PC, rather than a traditional handset.

    “The way people work is changing.  The era of the 9-to-5 job is over.  In its place is a mobile workforce that can work from anywhere, any time,” said Jeff Valentine, Senior Vice President of Product at M5 Networks. “The M5 Softphone is just one of the ways we are making it easy for people to stay connected, regardless of where they happen to be.”

    With the M5 Softphone, users enjoy almost every feature of the M5 Cisco phone right on the desktop without the hardware. Users can seamlessly;

    • Take, make and transfer calls

    • Access company and personal directories

    • Utilize speed dial

    • See voice mail alerts and manage voice mail

    • Initiate and manage conference calls

    Unified communications is about breaking down the barriers between the systems and devices we use to be productive, in this case the computer and the phone,” said Dan Hoffman, CEO of M5 Networks.  “We are absolutely dedicated to giving our customers choices about how, when and where they work.”

    The M5 Softphone is just one of M5 Networks’ unified communications and mobility offerings.  Others include; M5 Scribe voicemail to email transcription, M5 Fax, Find Me/Follow Me and the M5 Connect family of business system integrations.
