Call centres can be incredibly busy and noisy places to work. This means that it’s sometimes difficult to hear what is being said to you on the phone. Investing in a headset with two ear pieces (also known as binaural/duo) is a great way of blocking out unwanted background noise and office chatter.

Don’t just take our word for it. Georgina from a leading travel company told us:

“Having a binaural headset really is 10 times better! Everything is now really clear the whole time and I don’t keep asking callers to repeat themselves! Yes, still comfortable too, but mainly it’s made such a difference with being able to hear the customer properly- thank you!” – Georgina, Customer Services, Travel Company

Increase your concentration and efficiency by ensuring that you hear every word the caller says on the other end of the line. Become more productive, more focused and more customer friendly.

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.

Below are our recommended headsets for various combinations of the above considerations:

20 Years Ago

A computer was something on TV

From a sci fi show of note.

A window was something you hated to clean

And ram was the cousin of goat.

 

Meg was the name of my girlfriend

And gig was a job for the nights.

Now they all mean different things

And that really mega bytes.

 

An application was for employment.

A program was a TV show.

A curser used profanity.

A keyboard was a piano.

 

Memory was something that you lost with age.

A CD was a bank account.

And if you had a 3 1/2″ floppy

You hoped nobody found out.

 

Compress was something you did to the garbage

Not something you did to a file.

And if you unzipped anything in public

You’d be in jail for a while.

 

Log on was adding wood to the fire.

Hard drive was a long trip on the road.

A mouse pad was where a mouse lived.

And a backup happened to your commode.

 

Cut you did with a pocket knife.

Paste you did with glue.

A web was a spider’s home.

And a virus was the flu

 

I guess I’ll stick to my pad and paper

And the memory in my head.

I hear nobody’s been killed in a computer crash,

But when it happens they wish they were dead.

We love this poems on headsets! Maybe its time for you to get a new headset?

This headset doesn’t fit quite right,
The wire is tangled; the spring’s too tight.

The speaker’s screaming in my right ear,
Making it hard to say what I hear.

Making it hard to say what I write,
Tying my ears down good and tight.

Straitjacketed by this little mike,
I know what a schizophrenic’s life is like.

Hearing little voices inside my head,
A little voices repeating what I just said.

Am I crazy? My thoughts are about shot.
This little headset’s got my mind in a knot.

This serial killer has got to go,
Become a milquetoast average Joe.
You could say my head’s not screwed on right,
Time for a headset that’s not so tight.

A new point of view that’s out of sight.
Straight from one that’s wrapped too tight.

How can I get a new point of view?
Trade in this headset for an array mike that’s new!

Wireless technology represents the future of computer and internet connectivity.  A wireless network transmits information by radio and microwave signals. Other than the fairly obvious advantage of not having to faff around with cables there are numerous other advantages that wireless technology holds. Lets take a look at 4 wireless devices that can help you be more efficient, productive and connected.

Wireless Headsets:

If you work in an environment where you continuously take and make calls, such as a call centre, then being tied to your desk can be very frustrating. What’s more, it is unhealthy for you. By adopting a wireless headset, you aren’t stuck in the same position all day. You can get up, stretch your legs, move about and this not only gives you a bit of exercise, but it relieves the strain of the day. Wireless headsets increase production and create better time efficiency on each call because you will be able to look up the information you need while still on the call. Thus, a wireless headset will improve your satisfaction, as well as that of customers.

Wireless Acoustic Shock protection:

If you are using a wireless headset on a regular basis it is vital that you protect yourself from Acoustic Shock and other possible hearing damage. The Soundshield Wireless is unique in this aspect. Offering you a wireless headset which comes with its previously mentioned benefits, the Soundshield device intelligently analyses sounds before they reach the ear of the headset user and removes any loud and high pitched sounds. This provides you with reassurance and comfort.

Wireless Keyboard and mouse:

Wireless keyboards and mice are a key player in improving office ergonomics. The lack of cables and wires helps you maintain the required distance between the screen and the seating. When the PC is not being used, these devices can easily be removed to supply more space. Furthermore, if you are a flexible worker, wireless keyboards and mice allow you to use them on more than one PC saving you space and money.

Wireless Printer:

When looking into the benefits of a wireless printer the lack of cables plays an important role. While a wired printer has limited placement options as it needs to be sat near a plug, a wireless printer has no such limitations. If office space is scarce then this is particularly attractive. Mobile printing is another great benefit as many wireless printers can be connected with any smartphone or tablet within the network. So if a meeting runs over, the weekly status report can quickly be printed on a different device.
