In our last UC newsletter we talked about how to categorise users. This week we’re going to look in more detail at the Desk-based user profile and the devices that best suit their needs.
The desk based user spends the majority of their day at a fixed work-station and requires headset connectivity with either a deskphone or a PC softphone via USB. Many offices these days tend to be busy and open plan, so assessing the background noise level is a factor in choosing your headset.
Noise cancelling is a must to reduce the amount of noise transmitted to the caller, ensuring calls are kept confidential. If noise levels are particularly high a 2-eared design may be preferable to block out background noise for the headset user.
Another consideration is mobility. If staff need to multi-task and move around the workplace whilst on the phone, a wireless headset can be invaluable.
