NASHUA, N.H., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Hello Direct, the leading developer and direct marketer of innovative, hands-free, integrated talking solutions for business and government, today announced a new public sector initiative aimed at capturing additional market share with federal agencies and institutions.  The initiative is being kicked off at the Jabra Innovation Lab, hosted at the Royal Danish Embassy in Washington, D.C., by one of Hello Direct's premier partners, Danish headset manufacturer Jabra.  From green legislation to work-from-home initiatives, the lab provides government agencies with an in-depth look at how the right headsets can increase productivity and efficiency in the workplace, streamline and unify communications, establish secure connections, and assist with disaster recovery planning.

The Jabra Innovation Lab is not Hello Direct's first foray into the public sector; the retailer has extensive experience servicing such federal institutions as the General Services Administration (GSA), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Department of Agriculture (USDA), United States Postal Service (USPS), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).  With a dedicated public sector sales team focused on meeting the endpoint solution needs of these agencies and capturing new business opportunities, Hello Direct offers unique services and account management including onsite needs analysis and product demos for customers, product testing and implementation plans, special government pricing and procurement options.

"IT decisions for government agencies are not easily made given a variety of factors, ranging from new legislation to compliance issues and security needs," said Jerry Mayo, president, GN Netcom Inc.  "Hello Direct's account managers are pros at servicing the public sector and their client roster is proof of that.  We are proud to supply quality products that meet the needs of their customers."

Hello Direct offers products that are designed to maximize employee health and productivity and to eliminate barriers in information technology by creating new opportunities for people with disabilities.  Hello Direct offers Section 508 compliant products as well as eLearning solutions that help clients comply with accessibility requirements.   The products are also meticulously evaluated and tested for quality, reliability, comfort, ease of use, and ease of installation, and meet rigorous U.S. military specifications.

"The wireless headset category is one of Hello Direct's strong points and the public sector continues to turn to us for our expertise," said Deborah Wenger, Chief Operating Officer, GN Netcom Inc.  "In this sector, the Jabra GN9300 series along with new Jabra PRO 9400 and Jabra GO 6400 are some of our best-sellers, which can be attributed to these products being turn-key and profit-ready."
