Pleasanton, Calif. – June 27, 2017 -- MegaPath, a leading provider of voice, data, security and cloud services in North America, today announced feature and design enhancements to its award-winning MegaPath OneTM unified communications solution, including SMS Text and Screen Sharing by external guests.
“MegaPath One addresses the industry demand for an all-in-one UC and telephony solution that strengthens the work flow for our customers,” said Arnaud Gautier, Chief Marketing Officer, MegaPath. “The new product and design features, such as SMS texting and enabling external guests to share their screen, enhance the user experience and contribute to a fully integrated unified communications solution between employees, partners and customers, regardless of location.”
New feature and design upgrades include:
- SMS Texting: MegaPath One users can now use their Business VoIP phone number to send and receive SMS texts to and from contacts with mobile numbers, from their phone, laptop or tablet.
- Screen Sharing by External Guests: Guests invited to collaborate that do not have the MegaPath One client (“external guests”) can now share their screens and applications during a MegaPath One session. External guests simply download the free MegaPath One Guest Client from the Google Apps store to participate in screen sharing during a conference session. The app is available at www.megapath.com/mp1-guestclient.
- My Room Tabular Design: Conference sessions, as well as chat and text sessions, are organized in a tabular design by contact or group, allowing users to easily toggle between conversations.
