Softphones installed on a computer typically use CTI to control existing desk phones, such as entering the phone number via the computer and dialling automatically via the desk phone. In this context, CTI is also used for the integration of third-party application software, such as CRM and other management systems. By clicking on the number of a contact, the call is initiated via the desk phone. For incoming calls, the CRM contact is displayed.
