Telstra Liberate

Take your office with you with Telstra Liberate

Telstra Liberate combines the best features of your desk phone and mobile, so you can get an office-like experience on the go. Boost productivity and address the challenges of fixed mobile convergence, even if your teams are mobile only.

Key features

Our solution keeps your corporate identity without needing to introduce new devices, and optimises the tools you already have in place while increasing functionality and features. Empower individuals, teams and call groups with true mobility. Unlike calling through an app or VOIP, intelligence within the Telstra network delivers unified communications functions and voice to the mobile phone natively. And, because mobile calls use the Telstra mobile network, you also benefit from better call quality than apps using data channels.

Select your caller ID

Display either your mobile or work number, or remain anonymous for outgoing calls. 

Call transfer

Transfer calls easily and directly from your mobile.

Personalise your Liberate Service

Define a personal time schedule to choose outgoing caller ID; incoming call routing and; which devices will ring.

Hunt Groups, Call Centres & Call Recording

Enable hunt groups and call centre across mobile agents. Enable call recording on mobile devices.

One combined voicemail

Your desk phone and mobile voicemails are combined into one mailbox.

Liberate companion app

Allows you to shift, transfer and add calls as well as giving you access to call settings.


Empower remote workers

Full office telephone functionality on mobiles, that would be traditionally found in an on-premise phone system.    

[Gianpaolo Carraro, Director, Global Applications, Telstra]: Liberate creates the convergence between our mobile network and our fixed network.

You have this dichotomy between “I need a business phone but I love my mobile phone.”

So what we’ve done is make your mobile phone act as your desk phone, so you don’t have to make a choice anymore.

You can do both functions on both devices.

Through Liberate, you can give each of your employees a mobile phone and when a customer calls your 03 number, your mobile phone will ring and vice versa, you can use your mobile phone to call back that customer and they will be seeing your main business line, as opposed to the offer number.

The test for difference is this is an Australian first.

We are known for our network, we are known for our mobiles. 

It’s been very flattering to see that now we’re going to be known for more and more things, and we’re going to delight our customers in more and more scenarios.

Protect your Business Identity

Enable your workers to mask their personal mobile numbers and show your primary business number on their outgoing mobile calls.

[Paul Carpenter, Group Manager Hosted Telephony, Telstra Enterprise]: As employees want to use their mobiles more and more and they want to use them anytime, anywhere, anyplace. 

And as an employer, for employee satisfaction purposes you want to help them do that because it’s actually more productive as well.

The trouble on the flip side is that you hadn’t noticed that you were getting a loss of brand identity or brand recognition.

In that when they make the call from their mobile, the call is going out with their personal “04” number, not the long-established company number range, the “02”, whatever it is, the fixed geographic number, which is more trusted.

People tend to trust geographical numbers more than they do mobile numbers.

A fixed number implies a physical presence, a solid building, or some long-term, established number.

A lot of people don’t answer calls from 04 numbers that are not in their address book.

So, you go through this cycle of leaving a voicemail or leaving a text message before finally you agree to take someone’s call.

And so again, you’ve wasted a few minutes of productivity.

And again, the last thing we’ve noticed is an issue with adherence to corporate processes and procedures.

In that, if a customer rings an employee back on their mobile because they have that employee’s mobile number, they’ve just bypassed some of the things you’ve put in place to make sure the business adheres to processes. 

And that could be things like Call Recording or Call Analytics to count how many calls you’re getting for what particular line. 

So they’ve just around the back and circumvented everything you’ve put in place and gone directly to the employee, which again is another problem because that employee’s mobile battery could be flat, they could be on a holiday.

It ends up on their personal mobile.

They can’t transfer it back to anyone else in the business so they have to tell the customer to call back again, which is a risk, you may lose some business for that.

And the final risk, by the way, is that if the employee leaves the business, all of the calls are going directly to that employee’s mobile and they typically take the mobile number with them.

So, it’s their personal number.

The employees are actually using the mobiles at weekends and out-of-work hours.

So the mobile has actually become a dual-function device.

It’s your personal mobile but it’s also your business mobile.

We needed a way to try and separate the two.

"Telstra Liberate solves the problem of integration of fixed and mobile communications and allows business phone number to be displayed as the incoming call".

Dustin Kehoe, Head of Research Asia Pacific, GlobalData Sept 2017.

How it works

Telstra Liberate places the mobile at the forefront, bringing office phone features to your mobile. It works in place of the desk phone, but uses the native call dialler of the mobile.

Outbound calls - Select the caller ID you show on outgoing calls to suit the situation. Call as your mobile number, work number or as anonymous.

Inbound calls - Receive incoming calls to your mobile number or work number. Adjust your incoming call settings with the Liberate companion app.

The way we work is changing.

People once tied to their phones are embracing new ways of working that demand more from their mobile devices.

But the crossover from desk phone to mobile hasn’t always been seamless.

Until now.

Introducing Liberate.

[Paul Carpenter, Group Manager Hosted Telephony, Telstra Enterprise]: Most people are now using their mobiles and users are generally shifting towards mobiles as their main means of communication.

And that means their personal brand is being presented when they make a call to their customers, for instance. 

We can solve the problem of the loss of corporate brand or corporate identity and put the fixed number back onto the mobile device to give you the best of both worlds.

It gives the employee what they want, so they can use any device, anytime, anywhere.

For the business, it means we put their corporate brand and identity back on the mobile.

We’ve essentially got a personal life and a business life switch on there. 

It’s the small things that make the biggest difference.

One number and simultaneous, Multi-Device Ring lets you pick up on the nearest phone. 

Liberate seamlessly integrates mobiles and desk phones to improve how your people work together and respond to customers.

And when your business needs to handle larger volumes of calls, they can now be answered by anyone of your team, no matter where they are, bringing the best of the desk phone to your mobile—an office-like experience when you’re mobile.

Having one voicemail account means that all your messages are saved and accessed in one place. 

No matter what industry your business is in, or whether your business is big or small, Liberate frees your people from their desks and empowers them to do more.

This helps you provide a consistent customer experience and improves business continuity.

Currently, what happens when your business number rings and there’s no one in the office to answer it?

With Liberate, you can incorporate mobile users into your work groups, ensuring your incoming calls are distributed to the right team members wherever they are.

Call identity management

See how Telstra Liberate helps manage your communication and your brand.

Telstra’s Call Management solution helps improve communication flows and make your business more efficient.

With hybrid working, many employees are using their mobile phones for business calls. 

That’s why we developed Liberate, a solution to manage your employee’s identity when calling from their mobile phone.

With Liberate, employees calling from Telstra mobiles can choose to present either their mobile number or their business number to the person that they are calling. 

When your worker makes a call via their Telstra mobile, Liberate checks their stored preferences and shows either their business number or their mobile number depending on the day of the week or the time of day.

This gives your workers control of their mobile identity and allows them to separate their work and personal calls more easily, all on the same mobile phone. 

And the boosted efficiency creates more time for your employees to focus on what they do best, whilst projecting a more professional and consistent business image to their customers. 

It also encourages your customers to always call the business number to get the best service.

Call steering

See how the moble call blocking and divert capability in Telstra Liberate gives your customers a better experience and improves your employee productivity.

Telstra’s Call Steering solution helps improve communication flows and make your business more efficient.

When one of your customers calls one of your frontline staff, like a technician in the field who has a Telstra mobile, a functionality called Liberate detects the call.

Liberate can send a push notification to your database to check if the customer’s mobile number is allowed to call the technician directly at this time.

Perhaps the call might not be permitted because your rostering blocks out dedicated hours for completing work, or the call is not from one of your premium customers.

If the call isn’t allowed at this time, you can redirect the call to another number like your call centre.

This can happen in real time before the technician’s mobile even rings.

A customer service rep answers the call and the customer doesn’t have to leave a voicemail or wait for a callback.

Your technician can carry on with their work without interruptions. 

A callback notification is sent to the technician’s calendar, so they can call back when convenient.

With Call Steering, you’re more in control of your communication flows. 

Give your customers a better experience with Telstra Call Steering today.

CRM integration

See how everyday business applications can be integrated with mobile phone calls to build richer customer experiences using Telstra Liberate.

Telstra’s CRM Integration solution helps businesses match mobile phone calls in real time with customer contact information.

You can capture more customer interactions and give customers a better experience.

When one of your customers calls one of your frontline staff, like a technician in the field who has a Telstra mobile, a functionality called Liberate detects the call.

Liberate can talk to your CRM system by sending a push notification with both callers’ numbers.

The CRM then matches the customer and the technician’s number, and can then trigger the technician’s laptop to open the customer’s contact card.

When your technician answers the call, the customer’s contact card is already available on their laptop.

This allows the customer’s issue to be managed more quickly and efficiently.

Once the call is finished, the technician can quickly update the CRM before moving on to the next job.

So if one of your customer service reps calls the customer, they have all the latest information.

Your customer feels like they had a good experience. 

Discover how businesses across Australia are improving customer experience and communication flows with Telstra CRM Integration solution.

How Surf Life Saving NSW are using Telstra Liberate

Surf Life Saving New South Wales use Telstra Liberate in their State Operations Centre to facilitate their overnight operation.

[Hanna Clare, NSW State Duty Officer, Surf Life Saving NSW]: With Surf Lifesaving New South Wales taking up the Liberate and TIPT apps, it's guaranteed that all our phones will be answered and that you will always speak to a member of the State Operations Centre through the Hunt Groups that have been created.

[Matthew Ingersole, Chief Information Officer, Surf Life Saving NSW]: The key features that we use in Liberate is the ability for the users to be able to choose where they're going to receive the calls, on which device they're going to receive it on.

So you could receive it on your mobile, you could receive it on your desk phone, or you could receive it on your laptop.

Our overnight operators who are required to take calls that we want to call record, all of their phones are Liberated so that we can facilitate that call recording in the cloud. 

When Surf Life Saving New South Wales goes to remote operations as of seven PM.

The Liberate and TIPT technology allow us to act as if we were in the office.

The call recording is the same, the transcription is the same, and the call diversion surety that all calls will be answered is the same.

With Liberate, we're able to see who is calling us and able to distinguish the priority of the call that is coming through. 

We're able to tell whether it's an internal call, a call from a member of the public, or if it's a call from another emergency service, requesting our assistance for an ongoing emergency.

Liberate is great because it allows you to not only manage your desk phone calls, but also to be able to set things like time of day calling rules.

[Kelly Nicol, IT and Telephony Systems Administrator, Surf Life Saving NSW]: From nine till five, if someone calls your desk phone, it can come through to your mobile, but then after five o'clock, yeah, it can be set, so if someone calls your landline, it doesn't come through to your mobile, but if they call your mobile, it still comes through to you.

What Liberate and TIPT has really enabled our staff to do is to be able to work effectively from home as if they were in the office. 

Through all of this technology that we've implemented, we've enabled our staff to work very flexibly in a way that benefits them or is good for them.

There are no other solutions that are similar to Liberate, effectively.

You can have multiple phone lines on your phone, but none integrate your desk phone and your mobile phone together in the same way that Liberate does.

Testimonials for Telstra Liberate


“Enabling Telstra Liberate on the devices was fairly easy through the self-managed portal, as was adding users. Mitimes and Telstra Liberate with Telstra eSIM works great for firms as it supports using a second corporate number from the same device along with their mobile number. For a firm with a small team, Telstra Liberate offers a more professional outlook with a corporate landline number.”

Kirsten Rillo, Chief Executive Officer

WISE Employment

“Liberate is a great product, a world-leading product. That unification of mobile and landline allowing us to keep our corporate identity, but still allowing our staff to have a mobile number that they're known as amongst friends. Being able to move them within our organisation linking a landline to their mobile as they move into new roles is a great advantage. Otherwise, managing those assets can be a nightmare.”

Mick Havill, Chief Information Officer
