Business Directory

  • Overvew

    Business Directory® became a Cisco Compatible product at the end of last year, after passing the tests conducted in Cisco’s center of excellence in Bangalore, India. This gave us the status of the first Cisco Technology Developer Partner in Bulgaria.

    The application gathers and consolidates all corporate and personal contacts and makes them immediately available to organization employees using Cisco Call Manager and Cisco IP telephones. BusinessDirectory® is executed as an option from the Cisco IP phone menu and uses the same user-friendly and intuitive interface, buttons and keys as the standard Cisco applications.
    You can store and consolidate all organizational internal and external contact data and users can search them by name, position, department, location and the like. The system supports many phone numbers for each contact.

    The application allows each user to input their personal contacts from Microsoft Outlook and to view them on their Cisco IP phone.

    BusinessDirectory® can retrieve data from and synchronize with various systems and databases in the organization like Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange, which provides for easy administration and always guarantees usage of actual contact information.

    The system is natively integrated with the user’s Cisco IP phone and activates from the phone’s Directory button.
    BusinessDirectory® works with all versions of Cisco Call Manager and Cisco Call Manager Express. It works on all models of Cisco IP telephones with screens and also with Cisco IP Communicator.

    The system gives users immediate access to corporate contacts which provides for more comprehensive use of the existing telephone infrastructure and a higher efficiency and productivity of company’s employees.
