Together, Plantronics and Unify Enrich Team Collaboration

Today’s workforce is increasingly dispersed, with 49% of the enterprise reporting mobility as part of their work style. So it’s more important than ever for team collaboration to be reliable and intuitive in any location and across devices.

Back in December we talked about how together Plantronics Voyager Focus UC headset and Unify’s OpenScape CP600 desk phone allow users to manage calls distraction-free with immersive HD audio while protecting privacy, and ensuring security in open office environments.

Yesterday, Plantronics and Unify announced another great display of our partnership with a new software integration with Unify’s Circuit platform. This integration enables synchronization between Circuit and Plantronics USB audio devices, meaning the headset can deliver easy access to Circuit call controls from the headset. As a result, businesses using Plantronics headsets with Unify Circuit will now benefit from a simpler, richer user experience.

The way this works is Plantronics’ APIs, integrated with the Circuit platform, create an extension in Circuit that communicates with Plantronics Hub software. 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

This effort benefits every type of worker – from the desktop office worker to the mobile worker to the flexible worker. Also, it removes the restrictions of being tethered to hardware at a fixed location. The Unify Circuit platform integrates easily with Plantronics hardware, and operates naturally in a rich software environment.
