Grandstream Wave is a free calling and messaging app that connects to a Grandstream UCM63XX series IP PBX. It has similar features to Telegram, Whatsapp and Skype in that you can perform video calls and send attachments to friends and colleagues. It’s ideal for companies that have a GXP series IP phone, letting employees remain in touch no matter where they are.
There’s also a handy calendar so that the team can schedule meetings and invite others to them. If someone is delivering a presentation, everyone on the video call will be able to see it on their screens. It saves time waiting for everyone to meet at a building when they can join remotely.
Video conferencing tools
While Grandstream Wave is available to anyone with a GXP series IP phone, it’s usually more beneficial for companies with staff that wish to connect with each other. Employees can join video conferencing meetings quickly from the comfort of their homes. The app shows all members on the screen, or you can focus on the speaker.
You can also create groups on Grandstream Wave so that only those members attend specific video meetings. There are several options during the meeting, such as enabling and disabling the video or muting the mic.
Another handy feature of Grandstream Wave is that colleagues can send files to each other. It doesn’t matter if they’re documents, images or videos. You can also do so during meetings. However, you’ll need to have a steady internet connection for the transfer to take place.
Speaking of meetings, there’s a built-in calendar that members can share to view dates for upcoming conference calls. They can quickly enter the meetings from their calendars as long as the setting is enabled. It’s an efficient way to let all employees know what to expect and what they need to plan for the event.
Boost your productivity
Grandstream Wave is an excellent messaging and video calling app for businesses to enable employees to become more productive. You’ll save time travelling on the road to a meeting room, but instead, joining from your phone for the latest company information.
The meeting host can share presentations and documents, making it easier to enter into discussions. Members can also plan ahead with the meeting scheduler.
