BOCA RATON, Fla., March 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Unify, the Atos brand for communications software and services, today announced a partnership with Plantronics to offer Unify Circuit solutions powered by Plantronics Hub software to augment team collaboration. This integration provides superior call quality and helps increase employee flexibility and productivity.
Businesses can now select Plantronics headsets with Unify Circuit to create a simpler, richer user experience. The effort is designed to benefit every type of worker – from the desktop office worker to the mobile worker to the flexible worker. The Unify Circuit platform integrates easily with Plantronics hardware, and operates naturally in a rich software environment, removing the restrictions of being tethered to hardware at a fixed location.
"At a time when the workforce is becoming increasingly dispersed, it's vital for team collaboration to be reliable and intuitive across devices," said Luiz Domingos, Head of Product House, Unify. "Our integration with Plantronics audio solutions helps teams easily collaborate anywhere, anytime, from any device."
Plantronics' APIs, integrated with the Circuit platform, create an extension in Circuit that communicates with Plantronics Hub. This integration enables call control and synchronization between Circuit and Plantronics USB audio devices for a simple user experience. Plantronics Hub also provides advanced multi-device and settings management. The integration works across desktop and web clients for maximum versatility.
Plantronics enhances Circuit users' collaboration experience with a wide range of corded or wireless headsets and speakerphones, providing:
- a rich and crisp high-definition (HD) audio experience for vibrant conversations
- active noise cancellation (ANC) technology to block distractions
- "Office-on-the-go", where the user can seamlessly swipe a conversation from one device to another while maintaining audio in their headset
