When using Switchvox, it’s hard not to acknowledge the Switchboard as a powerful tool that is invaluable to many users. It gives you a real-time view into calls that are happening on your Switchvox system and, with appropriate permissions, it allows you to monitor queues, make phone calls, record calls, barge into calls, make video calls, and much more. The Switchboard works hand in hand with the Digium IP Phone on your desk to increase your productivity. But what happens when you’re not at your desk? How do you answer the ring backs that come from the Switchboard to initiate all of its calling features?
You might not know it, but you can configure the Switchboard to work with any of your converged phones. With this knowledge, you can take a laptop and our newly improved Switchvox Softphone for iOS and set up a powerful call management workstation at your house, in a hotel room, or even on the beach. The people you are calling or receiving calls from will have no idea you’re not in your office, and you will not lose access to any of the powerful tools that Switchvox provides.
