Installing Nextiva Unity

Nextiva Unity is a tool that allows your User, Reception, Call Center Agent or Call Center Supervisor manage their calls and tasks in an easy to use desktop application. With Nextiva Unity, you can easily manipulate your calls, see the busy status of your fellow employees and find out how you and your call queues are doing in a real-time environment.


System Requirements:

  • Nextiva Unity will require approximately 100MB of hard drive space on the local machine.
  • By default, the install directory is C:\Program Files\Unity Client.
  • Unity can be rolled out as an MSI file, which supports Active Directory group profiles.
  • Windows, 7, 8 and 8.1 32 and 64-bit versions supported from the same installer. Users do not need Administrator rights. The client may be used by Windows 10, but there may be issues with zoom. Windows 10 by default does a 200% zoom, and Unity does not show well in this environment.


Minimum computer specifications:

  • CPU: Single core 3Ghz.
  • RAM: 4MB.
  • Video Card: 256MB onboard RAM.
