NASHUA, N.H., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hello Direct announced that, effective today, it now sells all the leading brands of office and Unified Communications (UC) headsets and end point products, solidifying its position as the leading US B2B direct marketer of telephony products.  In addition to continuing to sell Jabra's full line of office and consumer headsets, Hello Direct now offers the corded and wireless office and UC headsets from Plantronics, VXi, and Sennheiser.  Together these four brands account for an estimated 95% of the US office headset market.

The market for UC headsets and USB accessories is experiencing a tremendous explosion of growth as many companies are deploying UC telephony platforms from Cisco, Microsoft & Avaya.  Most of these platforms require a headset, as voice calls can now be handled over the PC as opposed to a traditional phone base system.  A selection of this expanded product portfolio can be seen in the May issue of Hello Direct's award-winning catalog, while the full product line is available on the Hello Direct website at www.hellodirect.com.

In February, Hello Direct was acquired by Synergy Communications Management (SCM) of Cape Canaveral, FL, which also owns Call One, Allied Resources and other leading headset and Unified Communications device resellers.  The acquisition by SCM enabled Hello Direct to join the largest headset/ UC affiliates group in the North American market and begin selling the other major headset brands.

"We are pleased to welcome Hello Direct to our group, and excited about being able to expand the brands available to Hello Direct customers," said Stephen Mays, SCM's VP of Business Development.  "For years, Hello Direct has built its foundation upon providing outstanding customer service and first in class telecom solutions.  Now, for the first time in over a decade, we are able to expand those telephony solution options for our customers by selling all the major brands.  This is a very exciting time and we are looking forward to growing even stronger."

In addition to the four major brands of headsets, Hello Direct also carries leading brands of other telephony products and accessories, such as Polycom, Logitech, RCA, Panasonic, AT&T, Yamaha, Digital Loggers, Revo Labs, EnGenius, Snom, Konftel, and Aastra.
