Geofencing: Your New GPS – Making it Easier for You to Stay Connected to Colleagues, Partners and Customers when You’re Mobile


Geofencing is a powerful location-based service born in MiCollab, a cloud collaboration application for UnVoIP OfficeConnect Enterprise Edition Power Users.

This game changing technology automatically adjusts your availability status and call routing preferences within the application when your mobile device enters or exits a virtual boundary set up around a geographical location, known as a geofence.

So, let’s take a look at how geofencing helps you stay connected when you’re mobile. 

Move #1:

You head into work for the day and while you’re in route, geofencing sets your status to “Mobile”, automatically routing all work calls to your mobile device.

Move #2:

But, when you arrive into the virtual boundary that you set up as your office, your status now changes to “In the office” and incoming calls route to your desk phone.

Move #3:

Then when it’s time for lunch or that hour gym session you’re trying to squeeze in, as soon as you leave the office building, geofencing automatically sets your status to “Mobile” and routes calls to your cell phone.

Move #4:

And when you head home at 5pm, your status routinely changes to “Gone for the day”, and routes all calls directly to your voicemail. Or for the workaholics, your status can change to “Working from home” and have all calls forwarded to a home phone number.

So, once you’re all set up, geofencing becomes your personal assistant that simplifies your availability status as you move from location to location.
