Jabra Launches UC VOICE Series Headsets in the Philippines
Jabra today introduced four new unified communications solutions that are targeted at the Philippines’ booming call center industry. These recent years, unified communications (UC) has been a technological approach that local companies are trying to deploy and maximize in their organization. UC consolidates different communications tools and applications into one platform, resulting in efficient operation and financial savings for businesses.
Launched today are:
- Jabra UC VOICE 150 – an entry level headset that offers outstanding clarity, priced at MSRP US$ 39.
- Jabra UC VOICE 250 – a discreet and portable set of earphones, priced at MSRP US$ 49.
- Jabra UC VOICE 550 – a classic and comfortable headset with leatherette cushions designed for office use, priced at MSRP US$ 69.
- Jabra UC VOICE 750 – a headset designed for more intense usage, priced at MSRP US$ 89.
A common denominator among the four headsets is their usage of USB interface for plug and play connectivity. Understanding the nature of the call center business, Jabra has made the headsets feature an advanced noise cancelling technology to block ambient noise in a typical call center environment. All of them are primarily designed to leverage on Microsoft’s UC platform.
Besides call centers, Jabra is also looking at the potential of the UC VOICE series headsets in other fields like banking, insurance, tourism, government, logistics, and hospitality sectors. Communication and voice are critical in these areas because of their vast client/customer base and extensive network throughout the country.
Jabra has established partnerships with different hardware and software vendors like Avaya and Microsoft to ensure that the new Jabra products will seamlessly work with various platforms. Additionally, these partnerships may involve distribution of Jabra products in different markets worldwide.
In 2011, Jabra has recorded a staggering US$ 1 billion revenue. The company is divided into three major segments, such as Beltone which focuses on the production of hearing aids, mobile division which covers Bluetooth headsets, and the business segment which includes UC solutions. While Jabra’s research and development team is based in Europe, it has several manufacturing facilities in different countries, one of which is China.
