Sometimes it’s just not logistically possible to take your desk phone home with you. Maybe you don’t have an ethernet port nearby or the space to have a desk phone along with your laptop and other work essentials. Our HashKey PBX does not restrict you to using just a desk phone. There are apps available for Windows, macOS, Android and iOS. Today I would like to introduce a brand new service we call DoubleUp.
So what is DoubleUp and how can it help me?
DoubleUp allows you to use the same extension number when using an app as you do on your office desk phone. This keeps continuity while away from the office as there is no need to add another another extension to a ring group or change the destination of you direct dial number, then of course change it back again. When back in the office both your desk phone and app will ring simultaneously or simply disable the app when you don’t need it.
If you are using the excellent Acrobits Groundwire app on iOS or Android then a handy feature is do not disturb. Just select the name of your extension and slide the handle.
This brand new HashKey PBX feature is offered free of charge.
