In order to provide the most comprehensive IP phone solutions, snom technology AG (News - Alert), works hard to expand its phones’ interoperability with a number of partners across the IP communications industry.
Today, snom announced its latest interoperability partnership with Schmooze Com, Inc., a PBX (News - Alert) phone system provider founded by a group of communication architects and VoIP experts set out to simplify the corporate phone system.
Together with Schmooze (News - Alert) Com, Inc.’s PBXact phone system and PBXtended hosted PBX, snom IP phones can now be auto provisioned via the Schmooze Com Endpoint Manager for quick and easy installation and deployment. To further simplify the communication process, Schmooze Com Endpoint Manager will also provide snom phones with hassle free management directly from the PBX Graphic User Interface (GUI).
Interoperable snom phones include snom 300, snom 320, snom 370, snom 821, snom 870 desktop phones and the snom M9 wireless handset.
The complete IP solution offered by the snom and Schmooze partnership will not only provide SMBs and call centers with a unified end-to-end voice solution, but it will also allow VARs with a seamless auto provisioning and implementation process using the GUI tool.
“snom is committed to interoperability with a large number of SIP-based platforms and is pleased to have completed certification with Schmooze Com’s premises-based and hosted solutions. The ease of deployment and auto provisioning via Schmooze’s Endpoint Manager is a real plus for both VARs and end customers looking for a complete IP telephony deployment,” said Mike Storella (News - Alert), snom technology Chief Operating Officer.
According to Schmooze, the company’s PBXact business telephone system and PBXtended hosted PBX provide all the standard features of a traditional PBX plus a unique set of features for the modern workforce, including visual voicemail, custom IVR auto attendants, find-me-follow-me and convenient voice recognition capabilities that allow employees to access the company directory, check messages and perform call control using simple voice commands. snom phones have been specially engineered with Schmooze’s “magic button” that has been programmed for voice commands and dialing.
“snom offers a solid lineup of stylish, high performance desktop VoIP phones, and a cordless handset with great range and battery life compared to other handsets on the market. We worked with snom over several months, and the certification process went extremely smoothly. VARs will appreciate the seamless auto provisioning of the snom phones whether these phones are new to the customer or already installed at the customer location and simply need to be integrated with our PBXact or PBXtended solution,” said TJ Stamm, VP of Sales and Marketing at Schmooze Com Inc.
