iProphet Host PBX Complete gets 'anywhere' features to enhance smartphone use

The industry leading manufacturer of VoIP PBX's launces new features in their Hosted PBX Service. Executive Telephony's iProphet PBX has rolled out an enhancement to iProphet Host PBX--VoIP Anywhere, which allows customers to use smartphones and computers as VoIP handsets with complete business phone system capabilities.
The new wrinkle means that, even if a user calls out on a personal smartphone, the caller ID information will show the company's caller ID information.
iProphet PBX was rolled out in December of 2010 and can function without an in-place VoIP phone system, working as an inbound call router to existing mobile phones. The solution can even ring multiple phones simultaneously in any combination of wired VoIP phones or any wireless phones including cellular, WiFi and/or Softphones.
"Our launch of iProphet Host PBX Complete has generated tremendous demand from our customers. As they embrace our system, they are increasingly seeking the freedom to access their VoIP business features on any device, wherever they are," said Rik Holliday, Principal. "By introducing iProphet Host PBX Complete with VoIP Anywhere, we are delivering that freedom and flexibility to carry their business extension anywhere in the world."
The company said no proprietary software is required and said VoIP Anywhere capabilities can be accessed through any standard softphone, such as those available for Google's (Nasdaq: GOOG) Android phones, Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhones and computers. VoIP Anywhere allows the devices to appear as VoIP extensions in the Virtual PBX system, so calls to and from the softphone have full access to all system features, such as business caller ID for outbound calls, call recording, call transfers, presence management and reporting.
iProphet PBX said it also has reduced bandwidth requirements for VoIP calls, allowing high-quality calls to be placed over even modest data connections, including 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi.
