InterCall, the world’s largest conferencing and collaboration
services provider, today announced the availability of Mobile Assistant
for the Apple iPhone, a free application that makes conferencing
on-the-go as simple as the click of a single button on your mobile
phone. The application is available for immediate download at Apple’s iPhone App Store.
Mobile Assistant for the iPhone allows InterCall customers to easily
access the conference calls they host or join. Simple to install, Mobile
Assistant enables one-click access to any conference call from any
location. With Mobile Assistant, customers can:
- Eliminate the need to enter a 10-digit dial-in number, conference code or leader PIN. This information is instead stored in the iPhone.
- Store up to 256 unique sets of audio conference details – from weekly recurring meetings to one-time calls.
- Install and run Mobile Assistant completely on their phone, eliminating the need for an Internet connection or intermediate system, making access faster and reliable with always-on availability.
"Mobile Assistant for the iPhone simplifies conferencing for our
customers by allowing them fast, convenient, uncomplicated access to
their meetings," said Rob Bellmar, Vice President of Product Management
at InterCall. "With a simple click of one button, our customers join
their calls anywhere, preventing distractions while in transit. In our
increasingly mobile society, Mobile Assistant is the perfect addition to
our busy customers’ portfolio of safe and simple on-the-go resources.
Texting laws are becoming commonplace in many U.S. states to reduce
distractions while driving and one-touch conferencing helps keep
consumers’ eyes off their phone and on the road."
InterCall’s Mobile Assistant is also available for a variety of
BlackBerry smartphones including the BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry
Storm, BlackBerry Curve 83 and BlackBerry Pearl series.
