Mitel MiCollab – Software Phone

MiCollab is a softphone service provided by OIT that departments can choose to use instead of desk phones. It’s an application used on a mobile device or computer that allows users to make and answer calls using a UCI phone number. There is also a web client, which does not require VPN.

MiCollab benefits:

  • Freedom to make or receive UCI calls from anywhere
  • Calls are routed to/from UCI phone numbers, not personal mobile phone numbers

Additional information can be found below in the FAQs on how to submit a request, cost of services, etc.

*Please note that MiCollab is not available to employees working at the UCI Health Medical Center.

Calling Emergency Services With MiCollab

Calling 911 from the web browser or MiCollab app on your computer is highly discouraged, as the softphone will not be able to accurately report your location to emergency responders. If doing so is your only option, be prepared to report your precise location when calling. Calling 911 from your cell phone or a landline is the best option; both methods will allow for quicker location accuracy.
