The new attendant window permits receptionists or team administrators to manage phone calls and conferences for associates, set up processes to direct phone calls, and manage higher volumes of incoming communications through an intuitive software interface. The SIP trunking capability enables businesses to cut costs by establishing up a direct VoIP interface between an Internet phone service supplier and Office Communications Server 2007 without requiring in-house gateways. Also, Office Communicator Mobile support has been extended to new platforms including the Nokia S40, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
