Introducing PingTone MobileLink

HERNDON, Va. --(Business Wire)--

MobileLink, PingTone's new smartphone application built with the mobile employee in mind, is the hosted VoIP service providers response to the seismic shift towards a mobile workforce occurring across the nation.

Available for free in the iPhone and Android (News - Alert) application stores, MobileLink allows users to extend their business line to their smartphone, enabling them to make and receive calls using their business identity over their existing cellular service.

With growing instances of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in the corporate environment, employers are demanding control of personal smartphones to manage client relationships on company owned phone numbers. With MobileLink, professional presence is easily extended to the employee's personal smartphone without compromising your organization's security. Corporate and personal directories are at their fingertips, and call activity can be monitored as if they were using their desk phone.

"During the infancy of the teleworking revolution, many managers were rightfuly skeptical that employees who did not physically come into an office could not be as efficient as the worker sitting at his desk," said John Adams, Vice President of Sales with PingTone. "They didn't want their employees communicating with clients over a home land line or personal cell phone, making it difficult to track activity and keep tabs on employee communications. But as evidenced by new applications like MobileLink, it's important to realize that just because a team is dispersed geographically doesn't mean a manager can't demand accountability."
