InfinityOne – Quick Start Guide

Introduction

InfinityOne is E-MetroTel’s client communications portal, providing team based messaging, softphone, file sharing, team collaboration, and call center features. It is provided as a licensed component of the UCX Server that is ideal for companies wanting to privately host their own chat service or provide fully featured softphones that can be accessed on multiple computing platforms.

InfinityOne supports:

  • A Chrome browser based user interface that is operating system agnostic,
  • A desktop client user interface that can be used on Windows, OS X, and Linux based computers,
  • A mobility app that can be used on mobile devices.

While the browser based interface provides convenient access to most of InfinityOne’s capabilities, the desktop version offers significant enhancements to the user interface when dealing with voice calls, as the application can be active at all times, and calls are not dropped just by closing a browser window or tab. Therefore, E-MetroTel recommends the use of the desktop client for most applications. The Mobility app is designed to provide easy access to InfinityOne’s messaging and telephony capabilities for users of mobile devices and takes advantage of the convenient touch screen interface and native call handling capabilities for managing multiple calls from multiple sources on a single device.

Each of these user interfaces offer various advantages and have specific deployment scenarios where they are best suited, as noted in InfinityOne User Interface Options. From the actual user interface perspective both the browser and desktop client are essentially the same, and the Mobile version, although it has native Mobile methodology for accessing functionality, provides essentially the same set of capabilities.
