Enhancing mobile employeess productivity and tangibly reducing costs

With the addition of the Nokia E50 to its portfolio of business class devices, Nokia is continuing to expand workforce mobility by offering advanced call features. The add-on business voice solution enables easy integration with an existing business voice infrastructure (PBX).  For example, mobile least cost routing helps companies save on long distance and international calls by routing mobile phone calls through the corporate PBX, thereby removing cost barriers associated with business mobility. Companies with Avaya Communication Manager can already connect the Nokia E50 directly to their company phone networks, using the Avaya one-X Mobile Edition client. Nokia E50 works like a traditional office phone, enabling services such as short number usage, call forwarding, one-touch voice mail and extension dialing.

The Nokia E50 comes with a set of pre-installed business applications that help increase the productivity of mobile professionals. The Nokia Team Suite, part of the Nokia Office Tools offering, helps to facilitate conference calls and initiate push-to-talk sessions with selected team members easily and fast, through a built-in speakerphone. The Nokia E50 also includes a search function enabling fast queries into critical data, such as contacts, emails and messages. Important business attachments received via email, such as documents, presentations and spreadsheets, can be swiftly accessed via the Quickoffice viewer.
