How 24U Phone Companion works
24U Phone Companion uses a 3rd party middleware (ilink TeamCall Lite) to talk to the connected phone system. Thanks to the middleware, many popular PBX brands are supported by 24U Phone Companion.
The middleware talks to the PBX and tells it what to do with the user's phone. The PBX then controls the user's desk phone and handles calls.
FileMaker solutions equipped with 24U Phone Companion 2.0 can:
- dial, accept or hang up phone calls with a click of a button
- pop up a notification when an incoming call is received
- instantly lookup the caller's record in contacts database
- log incoming, outgoing, and missed calls
- check the current status of a phone line
- route call to another extension
- access other, PBX-specific, features of the connected phone system
