ITEXPO West 2015 served as an exceptional platform for vendors and attendees to display what the next frontier of business communications will look like. A firm redefining the importance of unified communication headsets – and communication experiences, too – is Jabra. Not a new kid on the block, Jabra provides exceptional endpoints and is touted as an industry leader.
Jabra was busy at the recently concluded event, as it released the newest member of its SPEAK series of speakerphones, the SPEAK 810, Senior Director Product Management Merete Bratsbjerg sat down with TMC CEO Rich Tehrani to talk shop and took home a Best in Show Award for its newest North American release.
Bratsbjerg explained the speak 810 has been available overseas and is making its North American debut. The endpoint was designed for knowledge workers to increase productivity. Its functionality is extremely user friendly with plug and play functionality, and this ease of use, Jabra expects to spark added adoption.
According to research, 10-15 percent of meeting time Is lost to technical difficulty, which means money lost due to lost productivity—Jabra is poised to make unified communications endpoints as seamless and headache free as possible. Jabra has leveraged the lessons learned from other members of the SPEAK line, the 410 and 510, to maintain its market leadership of today and expand its user base moving forward.
The SPEAK 810 touts ZoomTalk technology to ensure the highest quality of interaction. Put simply, ZoomTalk microphones are intelligent digital microphones arranged in four pairs in the unit. When one of the microphones picks up a human voice it hones in on it, while the remaining microphones work to minimize ambient noises.
The speakerphone is designed for 15 people or so, and users are given a slew of connectivity options that range from a 3.5 jack to NFC and Bluetooth. SPEAK 810 us an easy to use add-on unit that can be easily moved and deployed to fit a firm’s needs. Bratsbjerg noted that one should simply, “let it become part of that environment.”
Jabra promises2016 will be another exciting year for unified communications headsets and speakerphones, with solutions that target mobility and knowledge workers. A well known and trusted name in the industry, Jabra is positioned on the cutting edge of the market. I don’t know about you but I’m most definitely curious about what comes next…
