SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- One-to-many calling features have traditionally been reserved for corporate meeting rooms. Kuvi, a product of telecom software innovator Nethram, LLC, looks to shift that paradigm. The potential applications of Kuvi are almost limitless, for both individuals and small businesses. Kuvi is the brainchild of Paul Mathews, former Ericsson executive who is also the founder of Nethram. The price structure is pay per minute, but new users can test drive the tool with a free trial offer.
Kuvi provides numerous previously unavailable benefits and features to end users. Clearly, the ability to make conference calls without relying on a third-party bridge service is an enormous benefit. The software is also remarkably easy to set up. With no forms to fill out, new users can create lists and place calls within minutes of navigating to the site. A computer is required to assemble the contact and calling lists, but after this initial setup process, calls can be made from any phone.
Perhaps the most attractive aspect of Kuvi is its ease of use. After creating a contact list of names and numbers, users simply drag and drop names into call lists. Each list corresponds to a different type of call, which can be changed with a drop-down menu. Likewise, each list receives its own phone number.
Kuvi allows three distinct kinds of one-to-many calls. "Call Together" calls are essentially standard conference calls. Everyone on the call list participates in the conversation. "Early Bird" calls, on the other hand, create a one-to-one connection. Everyone's phone rings, but only the first person to pick up is connected, while the remaining phones stop ringing. This is a convenient feature when any one person on a list is actually needed. For instance, a retail store needing an employee to cover a shift can reach out to all available employees be calling a single number. A "Single File" call dials a list of numbers in succession. When the first call is complete, the next number rings. Single file calls are useful when there is a need to speak individually with several people in a row.
"When I was in a leadership position with Ericsson, I was frustrated by the tediousness of conference call technology," said Paul Mathews, creator of Kuvi. "Time is precious, and setting up these calls seemed to take nearly as long as the actual conferences. Typical bridging technologies are anything but user friendly. Kuvi solves these issues. More than that, Kuvi takes audio conferencing out of the office and into the consumer setting. I believe we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg in terms of what this tool can do for people."
Getting started with Kuvi is simple. New users can register automatically with their Facebook accounts. Once an account is created, users just need to add contacts and create groups. For more information, go to http://www.kuvicall.com.
