The Open-Xchange Unified Communications solution is now integrated with the VoIPNow Professional solution, with several features aimed to allow service providers to target business customers and reduce operational costs. The features include fax and voicemail tagging in the Open-Xchange inbox, the ability to configure VoIP features like phone numbers and locations, and the ability to call, fax, and send files from InfoStore. In order to integrate VoIP with Open-Xchange to take advantage of these features, the product requires VoipNow Professional installation, SIP capable devices for users such as soft phones, hardware SIP phones, or traditional telephones connected through VoIP adapters, and an account with a SIP provider or hardware to connect to the PSTN network. The product is offered for the Open-Xchange Server Edition VoipNow Bundle, Server Edition for UCS VoipNow Bundle, and Hosting Edition VoipNow Bundle, and is integrated with VoipNow Professional, a Unified Communications platform which hosts companies and businesses from 4PSA.
Open-Xchange offers “multiple Internet communication channels like voice, instant messaging, conference, presence, email, and groupware in a consolidated infrastructure that allows users to communicate in real-time anytime, anywhere” and describes the product as “an unbeatable economical offer.”
