Intelliverse Improves its VoIP Softphone Application

Intelliverse announces enhanced capabilities and substantial improvements to its Softphone application. The Softphone is a desktop application that allows calling through Intelliverse’s hosted VoIP services, callEverywhere. The new product rollout includes a more user-friendly interface that allows users quicker and more intuitive access to features they commonly use.

Intelliverse redesigned the Softphone application to ensure all the functionality was easily understood by the end user, while ensuring the overall quality was maintained. Intelliverse consulted with its customers and made changes based on their feedback. Changes were made to utilize conventions that are more standard with common computer applications, such as the ability to make calls through an address book or a recent call list. Additionally, a tabbed call area clearly identifies two callers, and intuitively switches a call on hold when a second line is answered. These new features are all designed to help facilitate quick comprehension, which ultimately will help in the usability of the product.
