You don’t need a physical phone to use our smart cloud communications; just connect your computer or device using one of the many software solutions available. Some call these SIP clients, some call them VoIP clients, we just like to call them software useful for making cloud communications work! The list we keep here is far from exhaustive, but we hope it will be of help to you.
What is a Softphone?
VoIP softphones are applications or “apps” that can be downloaded to a tablet, desktop computer or smartphone and allow you to make and receive voice calls through your chosen VoIP provider.
If you’re short on desk space, want to work remotely, or are just waiting for your physical phone to be delivered, downloading and installing VoIP software is the way to get started quickly with minimal security. Combining a headset with a VoIP app on your desktop computer can also be an interesting solution for mobile hands-free calling. Very useful if you manage a busy work environment or a call center.
Choosing the right mobile VoIP application for you can often depend on your operating system or device. The best way to make sure you get the best service is to try different apps on your device and see which of them work best with your particular configuration.
