With a projected 42 million new UC users by 2015, Jabra launches four new UC-dedicated headsets for cost-effective UC deployments – the Jabra UC VOICETM series.

Jabra today launched a new series of four headsets developed for the growing Unified Communications (UC) market and specifically for UC deployments.

All four headsets were designed specifically for companies looking for a cost-effective means of deploying headsets across an organization and to accommodate for the different working styles and environments without compromising on quality.

In addition to headset solutions for light to heavy users the Jabra UC VOICETM series features a portable headset developed for today’s virtual offices that is the industry’s first corded UC headset with a behind-the-ear wearing style and discreet form factor for video conferencing.

UC use expected to increase 600% by 2015

“Today there are approximately 7.8 million users of UC,” said Ralph Ede, Jabra Managing Director for South Asia,.  “By 2015 that number is expected to skyrocket to 49.5 million.  Optimization of these investments by adding the voice dimension to the UC experience and attaching headsets that offer superior sound, comfort and build will have a tremendous impact when wanting to ensure the right ROI.”

With so many new users coming from a traditional desk phone environment, the single most important factor for successful deployment and adoption of the technology is the headset, which completes the UC experience. With a series of easy-to-use UC headsets Jabra’s new headsets pave the way for faster end-user adoption of the technology.

And as more companies deploy UC there is a growing realization that audio plays a vital role in the success of the UC deployment. While the audio quality at both ends of a UC conversation is critical, there are many other factors that make a headset perform beyond expectations.

“A headset must be easy to configure, comfortable, and have a solid, quality feel,” added Ede. “The seamless integration between the soft phone and the headset is a key factor in employee adoption of a UC roll-out and thus, it’s overall success in terms of improved collaboration and productivity gains.”

Strategic Development

With its new Jabra UC VOICETM series, Jabra builds on a long tradition of user-driven innovation and developing high-performance headset solutions. As the first company to have headsets optimized for Microsoft’s Office Communicator Jabra has a history of maximizing the benefits of UC with headsets that are comfortable, easy to use and at the forefront of the development.

“In essence, this is a whole new category of cost-effective headsets,” said Larsen Sandoval, Jabra Country Manager for Philippines,.  “The four headsets in the Jabra UC VOICETM series are both powerful and economical.  They’re simple, durable, have superb audio and come from Jabra’s years of experience creating an award-winning portfolio.

Sandoval added that with its availability in the Philippines, the Jabra UC VOICETM can help deliver significant benefits to end users and their employers, including the ability to lower operational costs while increasing productivity, cut travel costs and headaches, shrink decision cycles and times to market, and take advantage of new business opportunities by collaborating with customers and partners. “It can really make communications work in a business environment.”
