Gradwell VoIP application which allows users to combine mobile and office landline numbers is direct competition to Vodafone says managing director
SME unified communications supplier Gradwell has launched a VoIP mobile application allowing people to connect their mobile phones with an office telephone network by combining their landline and mobile numbers.
The application which is called ‘Gradwell One’ is described by the company as a “unified voice and messaging service” and is available for iPhone and Android users.
It is labelled as a direct challenge to Vodafone’s OneNet by Gradwell managing director Dr Peter Gradwell (pictured).
It provides a consistent single view of the status of colleagues across mobile, desktop and computer based ‘softphones’ so the user receives calls on the device they are using.
This means that should a call be made off a mobile then colleagues using a desk based handset will immediately know that the user is engaged.
Because the service runs over the internet as a VoIP calls are cheaper than using mobile or land lines.
The application is available from £8 per month at the Apple App Store and the Android Market.
Dr Gradwell said: “This application really fills a gap in the communications market.
“The connection between the office network and individuals’ mobiles will help flexible working and reduce the costs of many calls.
“Launching Gradwell One puts us in competition with the telephony giant Vodafone, who have a similar offer but don’t have the customer service of which we’re so proud.”
