CounterPath Corporation (NASDAQ: CPAH) (TSX: PATH), a global provider of award-winning Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) solutions for enterprises and service providers, today announced the launch of Bria Solo, a next-generation softphone that combines business-class communication features, such as HD voice and video calling, in a user-friendly interface to help people seamlessly transition from a traditional phone environment to the world of Voice over IP (VoIP). Bria Solo will be available as a free version to replace CounterPath’s flagship X-Lite softphone and also as a premium, enhanced version on a subscription basis to replace the Bria 5 softphone solution.
Bria Solo offers individuals looking for a standalone softphone with a unique opportunity to test drive a world-renowned voice, video, messaging and presence application on both desktop and mobile devices. Securely configured and managed from the cloud, Bria Solo includes an easy to use web portal in which users can set up their voice accounts once and then simply login to their Bria application on Windows, Mac, iOS or Android with their username and password to start communicating.
“Over the last decade, our popular X-Lite and Bria products set the standards for high-quality softphones. We are excited to debut Bria Solo – an offering that replaces both products with a single solution that elevates the user experience by centralizing the management of up to three devices for individual users,” said Todd Carothers, Chief Revenue Officer at CounterPath. “We are proud to continue our tradition of being a market leader in providing differentiated product innovations focused on meeting the ever-changing business and technology requirements of our users and delivering the features and functionality that today’s modern, collaborative workforce needs to be competitive.”
Bria Solo features include (note the free version of Bria Solo may differ):
- Voice service and call server compatibility with the highest range of ITSP, VoIP, PBX and UC vendors in the market
- Support for up to five calling accounts
- Up to three application downloads on Windows, Mac, iOS or Android devices, with configured services synced across apps
- HD voice and video calling support across devices
- Advanced call management features including auto-answer, call recording, call transfer, call merge and call hold
- A comprehensive call history that is synced across applications, including the ability search and sort through calls and call recordings
Users can experience all of the features of Bria Solo free for 30 days by visiting mrkt-stg.counterpath.com/plan-select-solo/. Once their free trial has ended, they can choose to either purchase a subscription or are automatically enrolled in Bria Solo Free, a solution experience comparable to X-Lite. Bria Solo Free is limited to a single voice account and device, as well as some call management features, but retains the same user-friendly interface. Users of Bria Solo Free can upgrade to Bria Solo at any time, and all of their settings and accounts are saved within their portal, making the process seamless to transition back to a subscribed account.
With the Bria Solo subscription solution, users not only get mobile apps included, they receive all upgrades and updates as a part of their subscription as well, aligning to consumer expectations in modern software products.
