July 24, 2017 — PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Comcast Business today announced an enhancement to its cloud-based phone service, Business VoiceEdge. Microsoft Office 365 is now interoperable with Business VoiceEdge through the Business VoiceEdge desktop applications. The Business VoiceEdge desktop application allows users flexibility to customize their communications experience based on the applications they use most, such as Office 365.
“Our latest release of our desktop application allows you to make and receive calls from the convenience of your desktop computer,” said John Guillaume, vice president, product management at Comcast Business. “They also allow you to quickly transfer an active call to a different number, such as a mobile device or move a call to another phone, all without interrupting the other party. This kind of flexibility allows the Business VoiceEdge user to easily move between the office and the road with the click of a button, which is ideal for today’s mobile workforce.”
Business VoiceEdge™ for Office 365 integrates directly with Microsoft Outlook Web Access allowing the Business VoiceEdge user to click-to-call contacts, as well as phone numbers in emails and meeting invitations.
The enhancement builds upon two other award-winning integrations, Business VoiceEdge™ for Skype for Business and Business VoiceEdge™ for Google Chrome, which were announced in March 2017.
Comcast Business VoiceEdge™ is an affordable, cloud-based phone service offering a range of PBX and unified communications (UC) features designed to help businesses optimize their communications while making management easy for administrators. It also has a mobile app that works with iOS and Android devices.
Recently, VoiceEdge™ Skype for Business was recognized with a 2017 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award. These awards recognize the most innovative and highest quality IP communications brought to the market, or updated, in the past year.
Comcast Business provides a comprehensive range of voice services for large enterprises as well as small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB).
