This week I was testing the advanced services WorldxChange will be releasing for their VFX VoIP service. I was allowed to take some screenshots and post it here for you guys to see what's coming.
These services will be available as an add-on to the standard VFX package, with a monthly fee. They may be more suitable for SME, but it can certainly appeal to the geeks here.
Once the services are enabled, all thos "Advanced" options you find in myVFX will be available.
These are the new options in Incoming Calls:
This is the new option for Call Control:
Also a new item Client Applications is added with the following basic options:
All those options are pretty much self explanatory, but the CommPilot Call Manager is the great new feature. It allows complete control of your VoIP calls from a browser popup. This includes initiating voice calls, answering incoming calls, creating conference calls, modifying profiles - even initiate calls from contacts in your Outlook. Here is how this popup looks:
And here is how the Outlook integration looks like:
And here is the Call Log:
If you don't have Microsoft Outlook you can still load your contacts using the Personal Phone List found in the Outgoing Calls tab:
During my tests I found a couple of small bugs - all fixed already. The main thing is that all my Outlook contacts are stored with +[country] [area] [phone] so that I can use these while roaming overseas - and this also works when calling from the popup window, including for my New Zealand contacts stored as +64 [area] [number]. Very cool!
The service should be available for general consumption in the next couple of weeks.
