iscoord to showcase is-phone® version 8.1 at Lotusphere 2009 featuring Mac®/Linux® and Microsoft® Office/Internet Explorer® support

(PresseBox) (Lotusphere, Orlando, FL, ) iscoord ag, developer of award winning and integrated softphone technology is-phone, will premiere its new version 8.1 for the first time in a showcase at Lotusphere 2009 in Orlando, booth #827. Highlights include Mac and Linux versions, tighter integration into IBM unified communications solutions and support of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Internet Explorer via a toolbar, all in addition to IBM Lotus Notes, IBM Lotus Sametime and IBM Lotus Symphony support (version 8.0).

iscoord efficiently combines Lotus Notes and Lotus Sametime infrastructure with IP Telephony Systems. With no any additional hardware need, is-phone increases productivity by turning every desktop into an integrated and fully featured phone/video workplace, including both audio and video conference calls.

is-phone is PBX independent and fully client based, officially certified for compatibility by 3Com, Avaya, Nortel or Siemens and tested with SIP based environments from Asterisk, Alcatel, Cisco and others. Clients are not limited to one system and can easily change their back-end infrastructure without any additional investments into new desktop communication soft- or hardware. With a significantly lower investment than for any hard-phone or alternative server-based softphone solution, the return on investment is a matter of months. is-phone delivers a no risk, high return alternative, even without accounting for increased efficiency from a unified communications use.

"We are constantly improving and enhancing our is-phone softphone product range based on customer feedback as well as market trends and in line with IBM's UC2 strategy", explains Markus Sieger, CEO and President of iscoord. "The new version 8.1, which premieres at Lotusphere 2009 and will be available in Q2/2009, is the result of our aim to remain the leader for integrated, client-based unified communications solutions in the IBM space. Many UC offerings are incomplete in terms of compatibility or functionality and require additional communication infrastructure such as middleware. With is-phone, our customers have the freedom of choice and the very attractive licensing model allows our clients to reap the full benefit from integrated communication without substantial investments or long implementation time."

Rolf Kuster, Head of Development and Support at iscoord ag, adds: "Our integration approach and our focus on delivering best-in-class audio and video capabilities into existing communication environments is what our clients demand. We know how important a fast and easy roll-out of new tools is and what features are needed most. is-phone 8.1 fulfills all requirements of today's and tomorrow's communication needs and with Mac/Linux support, is-phone can be used as the communication client of choice also in mixed environments."

iscoord will showcase the full is-phone softphone product range at Lotusphere 2009 (January 18-22, 2009, booth #827) and VoiceCon 2009 (March 30 till May 2, 2009, booth #541) in Orlando.
