New ShoreTel Dock Transforms iPad and iPhone Into Desk Phone*

Introducing the new ShoreTel Dock, the industry’s first business-grade docking station that transforms smartphones and tablets into desk phones for the mobile generation. This industry-first hardware solution combined with ShoreTel’s mobility application will optimise how people use their iPhones and iPads for work – giving a new meaning to Bring your own device (BYOD).

Industry trends reveal the number of Australian businesses, including government departments, using tablets is set to increase by at least 50 percent in 2013 (Roy Morgan ‘Business Single Source Telecommunications Survey’ – March 2013).

Seventy-seven percent of all new smartphones and tablets activated in the enterprise in Q4 2012 were Apple devices (Good Technology ‘Q4 2012 Device Activation Report’ - February 2013). With data like that, there’s no denying Apple’s strong presence in the enterprise and its notable shift from a consumer device to an enterprise essential.

The ShoreTel Dock transforms Apple handhelds that are running the ShoreTel Mobility app, into powerful business desk phones and enterprise collaboration tools. Employees can simply slide their ShoreTel Mobility enabled iPhone or iPad into the ShoreTel Dock and get instant access to the comfort, battery life and call quality of a business desk phone. When combined with ShoreTel Mobility and conferencing applications, users get a phenomenal UC experience, utilising voice, instant messaging (IM), presence and conferencing on a device that they already know and love.

“ShoreTel is the only unified communications provider delivering an intuitive and easy-to-use solution that truly optimises how end users communicate for work,” said Jamie Romanin, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, ShoreTel. “We didn’t try to change or replace devices users already love, but instead enabled those same devices with enterprise UC to give end users a dynamic productivity tool that supports their own work rhythm. The ShoreTel Dock is the desk phone for the mobile generation.”
