Some people at our company are using a so called
Cisco Jabber in Windows OS to improve handling of phone calls directly at the PC instead of using the telephone anymore.
After installation, one has to register the client to the server just with a
firstname.lastname@example.org and the corresponding
password. Subsequently it is possible to search for names and numbers within the client (probably
LDAP-request) and handle incoming and outgoing calls without using the hardware telephone keyboard anymore.
Is there some alternative available that works on Linux systems?
