In today’s workplace, the best phone is the one you have with you. The one where people can always reach you. The one that helps you get things done. For highly mobile workers, that phone is often a smartphone.
Star2Star understands this, so we’ve created a full-featured mobile softphone client that extends the quality and reliability of Star2Star’s award-winning business communications system to your mobile workforce.
StarPhone™ for Android combines a full-featured IP telephone application with advanced presence and voicemail tools. The result is an easy-to-use softphone that allows users to place and receive calls using your company’s Star2Star
communications system. More importantly, it improves communications while reducing costs.
StarPhone™ users appear on the Star2Star system as standard extensions. Calls to other extensions can be made using StarPhone™’s built-in dialing directory, or the user can enter any valid extension number. Outbound calls made from StarPhone™ travel over the IP data network, and are not billed for airtime as cellular calls.
Calls can be made over virtually any IP network, including public WiFi hotspots. If no WiFi is available, the call will be placed using the phone’s data connection1. StarPhone™ users can use the StarPhone™ as their primary phone or take
advantage of Star2Star’s powerful Find Me - Follow Me call routing to automatically send calls to their mobile after a pre-determined number of rings, or they can have all their phones ring simultaneously.

One Number Nirvana
For years, businesses have been searching for a simple, cost-effective way to make employees more reachable. Until now, the only viable solution was to give key employees a mobile phone. If not managed carefully, mobile phones add
cost and complexity.
Frequent callers often get in the habit of calling cellular numbers directly. As a result, many users take calls on their pay-by-the-minute cell phones while their desk phones sit idle.
The StarPhone™ for Android solution leverages your company’s existing investment in smartphones without requiring an increase in expensive cellular talk time. Since StarPhone™ calls are carried over the IP data network, most users will
find that they don’t need as many cellular minutes. This can result in a significant cost savings.
With Star2Star’s sophisticated Find Me - Follow Me roaming, callers only need to know one number to reach any employee in your organization
