Access information about which users are using which mobile handset. The portal provides information on the make and model of the handset.

Client Testimonial

“We had a culture where we were slightly reluctant to change. But Blackstar held our hand through the entire upgrade process, and we are delighted with our new phone system and mobile device management platform. It was all so easy with Blackstar, and if I’m honest, I wish we’d done it sooner!”
