Advances in technology in the office environment often move both quickly and slowly
IP telephony and its related technologies have matured over the past decade. As competition grows among IP telephony vendors, product designers are packing more options, functionality, and bells and whistles into their products. This sometimes results in making IP telephones and their accessories more complicated to operate.
Yealink seems to have cut through the hype of multi-functional devices by designing and offering a simple, intuitive and easy-to-use device that performs specific and specialized functions, and performs them flawlessly. This is definitely the case with Yealink’s new CP920 touch-sensitive HD IP Conference Phone.
How often have you led or participated in a conference call where a technician had to come in to set up the call or troubleshoot? Because many conferencing systems are not intuitive enough to be operated without some training and practice, they often go underutilized and the company doesn’t fully reap the productivity and cost-saving benefits that the systems are meant to provide.
Konftel has made this problem a thing of the past with its sophisticated yet easy-to-use conferencing solutions. Here we present a customer success story that demonstrates how Olsson Associates has been using its Konftel platform to improve and simplify the communications among almost 1,000 employees across some 30 offices in seven U.S. states.
Internet Telephony magazine and the global media company TMC named the Konftel 300IPx IP conference phone, together with the Konftel Unite mobile app, as a 2017 Unified Communications Product of the Year Awardwinner.
The solution provides One-Touch Conferencing for scheduled calls and a whole new easiness to managing conference calls.
In today’s connected world, it is increasingly common to have workers in different parts of the country, or even different parts of the world, collaborating over the multiple communications channels available to them. Many remote workers use OTT services like Skype to keep in touch with their clients, partners and customers in situations where a telephone call (even over VoIP) would incur a non-trivial cost.
Such calls usually require the use of a computer with a webcam and either a headset or speakers and a microphone. This makes Skype calling more complex than a simple telephone call. Skype-enabled telephony devices remove this complexity by integrating the application with the endpoint, so communicating over Skype becomes as simple as a traditional telephone call. By enabling Skype, these devices also make more features available to the user like instant messaging, presence technology, and file sharing.
In this article we list some productivity-boosting Skype- and Skype for Business-enabled products.
Yealink has smartened up its IP conference phone with the CP960. This ergonomic, intuitive and exceptionally sleek conference phone adds the Android operating system and other enhancements to the Yealink CP860.
