The highlights of is-phone 8.0 are deeper integration, toolbar, wideband codec support and improved video conferencing. is-phone 8.0 integrates seamlessly into IBM Lotus Notes 8, IBM Lotus Sametime 8 and IBM Lotus Symphony 1.2. The is-phone toolbar shows for the end-user as an intuitive way offering value-added Telephony features and integrating in a non-intrusive manner in the graphical interface.
“With the advent of unified communications solutions and rapid adoption of collaboration software suites in corporations, integrating our unified communications solution into IBM Lotus Symphony was simply a logical move for iscoord” says Markus Sieger, CEO of iscoord ag. “The is-phone toolbar has been designed to keep a simple & intuitive interface in order to provide the best-in-class user experience, while maintaining our iscoord's primary product goals of cutting telecommunications costs, increasing productivity and lowering the carbon footprint. In addition, is-phone 8.0 offers a higher level of integration and increased compatibility without adding the complexity and cost of a comparable middleware based solution. To further support the market requirements and IBM’s multi-platform strategy we will announce at Lotusphere 2009 support for Mac OS X and Linux to be delivered shortly.”
“Just imagine placing phone calls while at the same time being able to edit a financial document, browse your emails or chat with your partners, all by just pushing the single mouse click in your IBM Lotus environment. In terms of usability and simplicity, is-phone 8.0 represents true added value! We are now launching the second generation of VoIP applications, more mature and simpler to use” said Rolf Kuster, CTO of iscoord. “is-phone 8.0, features also integrated LDAP, advanced video support and an integrated web browser within the is-phone for IBM Lotus Notes 6/7/8 stand-alone client e.g. for call-center agents.”
