WHAT IS WebRTC KITE?
It is a professional solution for business communication that enables external users to contact you via a simple link. Each employee in your company can have a personal link, allowing an external user to contact him or her. You can also create links for groups of users.
You can add Kite as a contact button to your website or in your email signature. Wildix offers Kite APIs, allowing you to display additional information, such as user picture, geolocation, presence status. Wildix also offers a customizable widget that you can embed into your website or into a single web page.

After this it’s possible to create Kite links for separate call agents or for groups of users.
Webmaster can then work on adding Kite service to your website.
