Fonality Flips the Switch on Follow-Me, Find-Me Phones

Fonality is updating its business phone system to detect when users are tapping away at their keyboards-as well as when, how and where to find them if they're not.

Fonality on March 4 is announcing a major upgrade to its business phone system-the PBXtra 4.0-that promises to sniff employees out and forward calls to their cell phones if it detects that they're not tapping away at their keyboards.

PBXtra 4.0's new FindMe feature allows users to stipulate when and how they can be tracked down, based on personal schedules and rules, but it also has new built-in presence detection that can pick up on users' keyboard and mouse activities, routing calls to users' cell phones if all is quiet on their PC.
