1. Customizable Hotkeys
Maximize your call handling efficiency with Linkus Desktop Client’s customizable hotkeys (keyboard shortcuts). By configuring these hotkeys, you can seamlessly perform various call operations directly from your keyboard without having to switch back to the Linkus interface. You can tailor the key combination to match your preferences and work habits. Whether it’s dialing, answering, transferring (blind or attended), holding, resuming, or hanging up calls, all tasks can be effortlessly accomplished with convenience.
2. Computer Telephony Integration (CTI)
For individuals whose daily work revolves around desk phones, the CTI mode in Linkus Desktop Client has proven to be a handy tool. Once configured, simply click on any phone number within the Linkus Desktop Client interface, and your desk phone will serve as the audio path to initiate the call. This useful feature eliminates the inconvenience of manually retyping phone numbers and helps you save time. Moreover, you can execute multiple call operations in Linkus Desktop Client to control your desk phone for a more streamlined experience, such as call transfer, hold, retrieval, and more.
3. Headset Integration
Linkus Desktop Client facilitates seamless plug-and-play integration of WebHID-compliant headsets, delivering effortless call control for call center agents and sales professionals. With this integration, you can benefit from one-touch functionalities like answering, holding, muting, rejecting calls, etc., keep your hands-free during conversations, and multitask with maximum efficiency
4. Outlook Integration
Linkus Desktop Client supports integration with Microsoft Outlook, providing you with a variety of efficiency-enhancing features. With this integration, you can call your Outlook contacts with a simple click, receive call popups for incoming calls, access call logs directly within the Outlook interface, and manage both your phone and email communications through a unified interface.
The integration will enhance your Outlook with the following features:
- Click to call directly from your Outlook contact list or mailbox

5. Call Flip & Call Switch
Linkus Desktop Client has two powerful call features: Call Flip and Call Switch. Imagine this scenario: In the midst of an important call, you need to leave. Instead of ending it abruptly, use Call Flip to transfer the call from desktop to mobile seamlessly. Once you’re settled, retrieve the call and continue on the desktop client. Whether flipping or switching, stay connected with important clients without interruption.
6. Call Merge
In other cases, when you’re in a customer support meeting or group discussion and require assistance from another department. What would you do?
In the past, you would have had to hang up and redial, disrupting the flow of conversation. However, with Linkus Desktop Client, you can utilize the Call Merge feature. This allows you to seamlessly merge two separate calls into a single audio conference call. This effortless merging enables you to initiate three-way conversations, facilitating collaboration and better efficiency by bringing together clients and colleagues.

In addition to the call efficiency-enhancing features mentioned earlier, Linkus Desktop Client also offers Omnichannel Messaging capabilities for streamlined message management.
