MetTel Launches Mobile Integration Services, First Phase of Aggressive Mobile Solutions Strategy for Enterprise
New Offering Brings Business Phone System Functionality, Rate Plan to Mobile Devices; Provides Consistent Workplace Experience In and Out of Office; Boosts Productivity and Savings
NEW YORK (May 3, 2012)– In a move that signals plans to lead the market with business mobility solutions, Metropolitan Telecommunications (MetTel) today announced the addition of MetTel Mobile Integration to its expanding portfolio of wireless services. The portfolio includes nation-wide voice and data plans, MiFi wireless hotspots and advanced wireless solutions over the nation’s top wireless network — all integrated with MetTel’s proprietary Telecom Management Software.
MetTel Mobile Integration uses a tier-1 4G wireless network to provide businesses with simplified and seamless integration of wireless devices with office telephone systems. By extending VoIP and PBX capabilities to mobile devices, MetTel Mobile Integration provides employees with a single office and mobile phone number, combines office and mobile voicemail in a single mailbox and transfers calls seamlessly between the two devices. The new service also enables companies’ existing four-digit office extensions to be dialed on mobile devices.
“MetTel is the first company to deploy a full mobile integration service package, available today to make enterprise employees more productive and cut costs,” said MetTel CEO Marshall Aronow. “What also makes our offering unique is our ability to combine the service with the advantages of our MetOne Software Suite. These proprietary tools
bring together every product & service from every carrier for every size customer and enable clients to manage expenditures from one simple, easy to use interface. MetTel is growing and committed to staying one step ahead of clients needs. We continue to break new ground with our service, our commitment, our portal and our technology.”
According to the Broadsoft 2011 Mobile Enterprise of the Future Survey, 62 percent of IT leaders are expanding their enterprise’s unified communications capabilities and 44 percent have at least one-quarter of their workforce operating using solely a mobile phone.
“As the mobile workforce grows, more and more businesses will demand the increased productivity and reliability of unified communications,” said Max Silber, MetTel’s director of wireless services. “MetTel Mobile Integration literally turns an employee’s mobile phone into an office extension, with all the features, applications and cost savings inherent in the office-based phone system. But unlike fixed business systems, integrated mobile devices will continue to operate during power failures or other landline service disruptions making business continuity another major benefit of MetTel’s offering.”
Silber said customers who subscribe to MetTel’s new service need not change any of their office telephone numbers, equipment or service plans. The service does require that customers switch out their existing mobile devices but the company offers many handset options including the Express, an Android smartphone, provided at no charge as part of the MetTel Mobile Integration service package.
“Unlike many of the so-called fixed mobile convergence services on the market today that rely upon specific applications or Wi-Fi, MetTel Mobile Integration offers the reliability and security of a truly network-based converged solution,” Silber said.
For U.S. businesses with international branch offices and customers around the world, MetTel’s Mobile Integration means international calls can be made at landline packaged rates thereby avoiding the high cost of mobile usage minutes. For retailers, provisioning communications for a new store will be as easy as handing employees mobile phones with all the features and functionality of the wired phones in well-established locations, Silber noted.
MetTel combines the security of North America’s most trusted carriers with the convenience of using one provider with a single point-of-contact throughout the United States. MetTel’s centralized customer care structure ensures standardized processes and personal service regardless of product class or geography.
