Fastcall was one of the first Open CTI apps to support Lightning. And by the way, we were one of the first to support Open CTI too. Starting in our Version 4.0 – way back in May 2017 – we introduced a new Lightning-ready interface.
The Salesforce Lightning experience brings a modern, efﬁcient user experience. The goal is to surface relevant information, streamlining processes and making workﬂows more efﬁcient.
There are several advantages to Fastcall – and all Open CTI apps – in Lightning. The UI is much larger and persistent on the page.

In the Fastcall Lightning app – when making outbound calls – users will drop voicemails, dial by list, transfer calls, control outbound caller ID and more. Callers may use the Fastcall softphone, an existing hard phone or SIP.OUTBOUND
For inbound calls, Fastcall searches Salesforce for a matching record by caller ID. Inbound calls can route to single users or groups of users. Calls can be answered by a greeting, with an optional menu to transfer calls. Callers can search a directory of users. Fastcall supports time of day, and day of week routing and more.INBOUND
