XIAMEN, CHINA / DALLAS, US – July 26, 2018 – Yeastar (www.yeastar.com), a leading manufacturer of VoIP PBX systems and VoIP Gateways, today announced the beta release of its new Linkus Unified Communications Application. Built on the success of Linkus Mobile Client which has exceeded 30,000 downloads, the new Linkus adds Windows desktop and IM support along with a suite of advanced call handling features, providing powerful UC functions from the convenience of Windows PC and mobile devices.

Yeastar launched its first cloud PBX offering, Yeastar Cloud PBX, earlier this year. Now with the release of the new Linkus for Desktop and Linkus for Mobile, Yeastar is taking its UC offering a step further, opening up more reseller sales opportunities and putting the power of UC into the hands of more modern mobile workers.

Key Features and Benefits of Linkus

  • Bring Your Extension with You: Linkus can complement or even completely replace the desk phone with all extension features, allowing employees to take office communications with them wherever they travel.
  • Manage and Control Your Calls: Linkus features capabilities such as transfer, hold, mute, record as well as custom ring strategy, helping users easily handle business calls and forward them to the devices of their choice.
  • Consolidated Collaboration: Check the presence status of colleagues before reaching out. See if they are available, away, offline or on a call. In addition, Linkus for Desktop offers Google Contacts and Outlook Contacts integration with call popup and call journals.
