New Features! Business Unlimited’s Latest Enhancements

On Thursday, April 30, Northland, with the help of our partners at Metaswitch, released three new features to enhance our Business Unlimited solution, including SMS text messaging, Business Group Call Analytics and Real Time Agent & Supervisor Dashboards. These features are available to all Business Unlimited customers, as well as the 2,000 local remote workers leveraging our free tools.


BG Call Reporting allows you to access call reporting data for all users in your Business Group. It can be accessed through the CommPortal Admin online portal. Call activity data can be provided and exported in three different formats: summary graphs, reports and call logs. All Business Unlimited customers, including those with Value, Standard, and Premium user packages, now have access to this system enhancement.


SMS, more commonly referred to as text messaging, allows MaX UC users to send texts to customers and team members from their soft-phone client. The recipient will receive the message as a SMS text on their cellphone. When they reply to your message, you will receive it to your business phone number in the form of a MaX UC chat. All Business Unlimited standard and premium users with MaX UC can now utilize this feature. If you’re interested in upgrading some or all of your licenses to Standard or Premium, request a consultation with your Northland account rep using the form below.

iACD, Integrated Automatic Call Distribution, is essentially a mini call center. It will help you increase the productivity and efficiency of your employees, deliver greater support with faster response times to your customers, and streamline your internal duties and processes based on real data.

The Basic Real Time Agent Dashboard provides a dashboard for managing call queues and allows agents to set their availability status. The Basic Supervisor Dashboard helps you build and manage the strongest team possible for your organization by providing an incoming call dashboard as well as additional features like monitor, “barge in,” whisper, and view features.

iACD is accessible through CommPortal and available for all Business Unlimited users to add-on for a low monthly cost. If you’re interested in enhancing your solution with this feature, you can try it free for 60 days! Fill out the form to get started and request a demo with your Northland account rep. 

All users currently taking advantage of our free MaX UC offer to help new remote workers can utilize the new SMS and call reporting features for the remainder of their free trial, through June 30, 2020. To discuss transitioning to this solution long-term, please use the form below to get in touch with our team.
