Distributor of Polycom’s voice communications solutions, Wavelink presents the new Polycom KIRK Butterfly Handset Series, consisting of stylish and colourful wireless phones for office environments.
The new Polycom KIRK Butterfly handsets feature best-in-class voice quality and call reliability as well as interoperability with major IP PBX systems and soon, Microsoft Lync (in the process of Microsoft qualification).
The affordable handsets have been added to the Polycom KIRK family of Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) handsets, used for years in healthcare, manufacturing, retail and various demanding work environments.
Mobility solutions such as DECT phones are becoming essential to the competitiveness of today's organisations. Additionally, support for technologies such as Internet Protocol (IP) and session initiation protocol (SIP), is aiding market growth of DECT phones worldwide.
According to Sten Dyrmose, general manager, wireless solutions, Polycom, the KIRK Butterfly Handset Series is a dramatic new entrant to a market that wants great value, style and customisation without sacrificing the exceptional quality and reliability that they've come to expect from the Polycom and KIRK brands.
Interoperating with all Polycom KIRK wireless servers, which can support small businesses as well as enterprise systems, the handsets feature a newly designed user interface, including a 4-way navigation key with icons, which makes the handsets easy for employees to operate, while also shortening response time and streamlining workflow.
Customers can support their business needs by easily expanding coverage, voice traffic and number of users thanks to the modular nature of the Polycom KIRK solution, which pairs Polycom KIRK handsets with one or more Polycom KIRK wireless servers, allowing businesses of all sizes to improve employee productivity, mobility, reaction time and personal safety.
