Ooma Office Pro Expands Work from Anywhere Capabilities with New Desktop App

Ooma has introduced a desktop app for Ooma Office Pro that turns Windows PCs and Macs into full-featured business phones.

For workers who spend most of their day in front of a computer, the Ooma Office Pro desktop app provides a virtual endpoint as an alternative or addition to a traditional desk phone. The app works anywhere the computer has an internet connection, keeping employees connected while working on the road, from home or in the office.

Beyond making and receiving phone calls, the desktop app lets users search the company directory to find colleagues and dial with one click; access call controls, such as forwarding, recording, and flipping; start a conference call with one click; listen to voicemail messages; review call recordings; send and receive virtual faxes; and manage personal settings.

Ooma Office Pro offers all the reliability, call quality and functionality of the award-winning Ooma Office  solution, while adding capabilities that meet the professional needs of businesses seeking a further productivity boost.

In addition to the desktop app, these added capabilities include call recording, enhanced call blocking, voicemail transcription, and overhead paging support.

There are more than 35 advanced features in Ooma Office, all included in Ooma Office Pro, such as a virtual receptionist, text messaging, ring groups, call park, extension dialing, virtual fax and a dedicated conference line for each user.
