The face of the workplace is changing. As millennials enter the work force and as other issues such as traffic gridlock start to be felt, the paradigm of life at work has begun to shift.


More and more of the work force are taking the opportunity to work remotely, and technology has certainly been a part of that movement. With technology having taken massive leaps in just a few years, there is no need to go into an office for a meeting when a conference call could do the trick.


Jabra, a leading supplier of wireless headsets, has stepped into the spotlight with its solutions for remote communication, especially where meetings-on-the-go are concerned.


“Even if you do work in an office, the technology on Jabra’s 710 speakerphones will cut out the hassle of worrying about annoying tech issues that might delay your meeting,” says Ruan Adlem, Business Development Manager, Southern Africa – Jabra “It’s easy to use, you can just plug and play. And it’s compatible with any PC, Bluetooth or phone.


“Remote workers are not office bound. They can hold their meetings anywhere, anytime. That’s why it’s important that the equipment you take with you is portable. The 710 can work as long as you can, with a 15-hour battery life. Not to mention that the Wi-Fi range is 30 metres.”


The state of the art technology that has gone into the creation of Jabra’s 710 speakerphones include crystal clear sound with an omni-directional microphone. HiFi grade speakers ensure that conference calls go smoothly with everyone hearing clearly – whether you are using Skype for Business or Cisco Webex. The 710 speakerphones are effective for a meeting of up to six people, with no one missing a single word.


“The speakers have HD Voice/Wideband Audio,” Adlem explains. “This gives you superior sound for the best voice collaboration – making sure that everyone is heard. It is compatible with a Bluetooth headset, if you need it.”


And while they may work hard, remote workers also need time to relax. Jabra’s 710 speakerphones can be used to play music with the same clear cut clarity that it delivers for conferencing solutions.


One of the greater problems with remote working is the challenge of communication and collaboration amongst staff. The days of meeting around the water cooler may very soon be a thing of the past. However, with the further development of communication technology, those who do work remotely have found a way to meet around the cooler – in a digital way.
