Unity Desktop
Unity is a call manager software that enables you to view your colleagues status, accept calls transfer and much more.

It is great alternative to BLFs as you can see your colleagues status in real time and even see who it is they are on the phone to.

This is great tool for remote workers. Unity Lite enables you to see 10 users on the BLF pane to add the function of seeing more contact TST Sales team


Unity is split into three functional areas; Call Control buttons, Active Call Window and Contacts
[Busy Lamp Field and Instant Messages]. The contacts tab can be toggled to display Call Logs
and the Voicemail tab.

The Active Call Window will display the status of all current calls for the logged in user, which are
controlled using the Call Control buttons. These call control buttons will change based on the
status of the call.
