Allworx Introduces Allworx Reach for Android

13:45 EST Thursday, December 12, 2013

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Dec. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allworx Corp, a Windstream company, today announced that support for its popular Allworx Reach application has been extended to include Android devices. Allworx Reach combines effortless communication with complete mobility. Originally released for iOS devices and now available for Android devices, Allworx Reach brings more than the rich functionality of the Allworx desk phone to the smartphone.  Combining the inherent power of the smartphone with features of the Allworx server, Allworx Reach has a new level of  feature functionality. It integrates seamlessly with new or existing Allworx products and requires no additional Allworx hardware.   Both Wi-Fi and cellular data networks are utilized for access, so anywhere there is a signal — from across the room or across the globe — Allworx Reach users are connected.

"Extending the compatibility of Allworx Reach to accommodate the increasing popularity of the Android platform is an important phase in the development of the application," said Chris Hasenauer, vice president and general manager of Allworx. "Reach has already been welcomed as a productivity-enhancer by Allworx customers, and Android users are looking forward to realizing the benefits of the application."

With Reach, users can simultaneously make and receive multiple calls from large, visual call windows. Android users can swipe side-to-side to quickly change windows.  Almost every Allworx function is available including seamless conferencing, transferring, parking, or holding calls. With Reach, users can listen to voicemails in any order they choose and place calls using the Allworx system contacts list or their local contacts. A comprehensive history list tracks every inbound, outbound or missed call. And best of all, users can see the status of other Allworx handsets or other Reach users before calling.
