Enables mobile workforces to communicate from any device
GAITHERSBURG, MD, December 21, 2011 – BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ:BSFT, news, filings), today announced that LG U+, one of South Korea's leading service providers of mobile, fixed-line and broadband communications services, will leverage the BroadWorks® voice application platform to launch a new hosted Unified Communications (UC) offering for enterprises in South Korea.
The broad range of UC capabilities that the BroadWorks platform delivers include video, voice, call center, conferencing, messaging and mobility, for businesses and consumers. BroadWorks Anywhere™ enables increasingly mobile workforces to communicate and collaborate from any device - so they can use their laptops, smartphones, tablets and other connected devices interchangeably. Key benefits of BroadWorks Anywhere include:
- Ability to move calls among devices - Business users can ensure voice call continuity by moving live calls seamlessly from one phone to another without having to hang up. As the first service provider in Korea to offer BroadWorks Anywhere, LG U+ can significantly differentiate its hosted UC services by offering fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) services without the need for additional equipment.
- Universal feature access - Users can use many of their business calling features such as call transfer, extension dialing, hunt groups and attendant consoles, regardless of which device they use to answer or make calls.
- Synchronization - All communications preferences are stored in the cloud and synchronized with the client on login. In addition, users have one identity across voice, video and Instant Messaging and Presence services.
"The BroadWorks platform has been widely deployed in South Korea and by adding the mobile extension capabilities of BroadWorks Anywhere, we now have a small business solution that is unique," said Sung Ryul Park, Director of Business Solutions, LG U+. "The ability to quickly and efficiently bring mobile phone features to market ensures that we can continue to deliver innovative solutions to our customers. This project is an exciting extension of our relationship with BroadSoft®, where the customer benefits tremendously from the experience we've gained by working together for years."
"LG U+ is offering innovative communication services to provide businesses with the flexibility they need, without the associated capital, lease or maintenance costs of a premises-based system," said Leslie Ferry, vice president marketing, BroadSoft. "We applaud LG U+ for expanding its mobile capabilities through the BroadWorks platform in order to meet the needs of small and medium-sized businesses in Korea."
