Jabra's new BIZ 2300 arms modern contact center agents with best-of-breed headset technology
ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Future Call Center Summit -- Jabra, a leading manufacturer of innovative audio solutions, today announced the answer to the contact center of tomorrow – the Jabra BIZTM 2300. Completely rethinking the role of the headset in the contact center, Jabra is launching the Jabra BIZ 2300 as a direct response to address the needs of the evolving contact center landscape.
Developed with the contact center agent in mind
Today contact centers play an increasingly important role as the customer's first point of contact, and companies are realizing their contact center agents are in essence their brand ambassadors. With agents on the frontline, it is paramount that each call is handled as professionally as possible with crystal-clear sound and minimal to no background noise.
"We believe that contact center agents are key contributors in safeguarding brand perception, and this will only increase in the future," said Holger Reisinger, Jabra Vice President of Marketing, Products and Alliances. "With the Jabra BIZ 2300 we accepted the challenge of developing a superior audio device for these brand ambassadors with best-in-class sound performance, built-to-last durability and exceptional comfort."
With up to 50 percent better noise cancellation and a 20 percent lighter form factor compared to competitors, Kevlar® cords and a virtually unbreakable boom arm for durability, the Jabra BIZ 2300 comes out on top with all key call center headset parameters.
Jabra BIZ 2300 benefits include:
"What strikes me most about the new Jabra BIZ 2300 is it offers features typically found only in more expensive, higher-end headsets, such as Kevlar cords and the 360 boom arm," said Sheila McGee-Smith, industry analyst and president, McGee-Smith Analytics. "Agents wear headsets for many hours a day, and these features add increased comfort and durability."
A collaborative development effort
To ensure that the Jabra BIZ 2300 meets all the demands of the modern contact center, Jabra has developed the headset in close collaboration with customers and strategic alliance partners such as Avaya, a global leader in business communication.
"Today, companies like Avaya need to execute to perfection at all customer touch-points, with a crisp and clear voice," said Linda Hartig, Avaya VP of Global Support Services. "Our Services Desk in Westminster, Colorado has piloted the Jabra BIZ 2300 and it is spot on in terms of delivering that superior sound quality Avaya and our customers expect."
The Jabra BIZ 2300 is available today and will be sold through Jabra Business Solutions partners.
