Snom io API Brings Apps to Company Desk Phones

Snom Technology, a developer of enterprise IP desk phones, recently announced its launch of the new Snom io, short for Snom Innovation-Output, software that contains APIs available for developers to link their own applications directly to Snom phones.

Nadahl Shocair, the group chief executive officer at Snom, commented that the new Snom io wants to get developers interested in creating their own custom applications specifically for their desk phones. This could result in audio and video handling apps, links to devices in the Internet of Things, or access to personal of business information such as client contact lists. Shocair has more on the personalization clients can expect from the new product:

“It will enable businesses to utilize more sophisticated and specific functions for their people, allowing them to configure their desktop telephones around the way they work,” Shocair said. “This delivers efficiency, cost reduction, and increased employee performance and, therefore, empowering and improving the way people work and interact with the world around them.”

Personalization is truly the name of the game when it comes to the creation and development of IP phones. Many companies have a strong grasp of the basics and can deliver high-quality voice and video in their touchscreens all while handling call routing and visual voicemail in the background.

How does a company stand out from the pack? They can use APIs that link one device to another or allow software applications to directly play with hardware. This is the primary discussion that will surround the coming TMC convention, “All About the API,” that will take place in Las Vegas this July. The conference will feature speakers and exhibits that demonstrate the power of APIs and the value they can bring to various enterprises and markets. It wants to bring together API developers and product managers to find out how they can best join their ambitions."

Snom releases such as the new D765 Executive Desk Telephone, a desktop model that brings its best for company chairs, may become a part of the conversation in ways that do not just involved their extensive built-in feature sets. Their programmable keys and large, color displays will remain talking points on principle but will also involve their interaction with new apps made in Snom io. Executives, managers, and all employees can get exactly the tools they need to act with even more productivity in the workplace.

The new API software is expected to make a showing at upcoming conferences before landing in the hands of the Snom dedicated and its newest customers.
