BT has launched a service that allows business people to receive office and mobile calls to a single device and reduce the risk of them missing important calls.

BT One Phone streamlines communication for professionals by channelling calls to the landline, extension or mobile number all into one place. All phone numbers for the individual are linked to one mobile device, meaning they can manage their calls from anywhere.

Graham Sutherland, CEO of BT Business, said: "With an increasingly mobile and demanding workforce, businesses need communications technology that is as flexible as they are. Missed calls mean missed business. Today's announcement, combined with the upcoming launch of our 4G services, demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the increasingly mobile UK workforce."

Users would need a BT One Phone SIM to gain access to the cloud-based call management service, with which they can receive calls from all of their various phone lines. This gives professionals more control, increasing productivity even when away from the office.

Administrators will also be able to manage employee access by activating or deactivating employee SIM cards, managing call groups etc.

BT provides "on-set" internal calls between users within a single business with shared bundles and limited upfront investment for smaller companies.

Phones with a BT One Phone SIM will automatically connect to the network when in range, making the transition from being in the office to being on the move or at home completely seamless.
