After the log in process is completed, the interface what users can see looks exactly the same as they used. Neither training nor further learning is needed.

Employees can be easily located by colleagues or customers with just his/her extension number wherever he/she is, in the meetings, on business trip or at home with this single phone. All these enhance considerably communication efficiency.
