ShoreTel has worked hard to become the market leader of unified communications (UC) systems, including business phone systems, applications and mobile UC solutions. And with the release of its ShoreTel 400 series IP phones today, the company remains true to form.
The 400 series IP phones offer new functionality and enhanced usability, such as visual voice mail, advanced user interface, and built-in diagnostics. With the release, ShoreTel continues as the only UC provider offering a choice of communication solutions and endpoints that optimize how users communicate in the work environment for maximum productivity by providing the best possible user experience.
Early users of the 400 series IP phones quickly recognized how its brilliantly simple features and functionality enable increased worker productivity.
“What we like about the new phones is the button response and feel along with the ability to use visual voicemail,” said Glen Liljeberg, IT manager at Village of Westmont. “In addition, the color screens are vivid and easy to read.”
The 400 series IP phones show that whether a customer communicates with desk phones, smart phones, tablets, laptops or PCs, ShoreTel helps lets them choose the device best suited to their needs.
The intuitive user interface of the 400 series IP phones extends the proven ergonomic advantages of ShoreTel IP phones. Specifically, the display is closer to vertical for better readability with a five-way control for quick navigation through screens and menu options, and the keypad is closer to horizontal for more ease when dialing and using the function keys. The lighter handset offers more comfort, and the phones have a smaller footprint for reduced use of space on the desktop.
The IP 400 series phones are available now for customers looking to install a new ShoreTel 14 system. The phones offer greater flexibility by supporting premises deployments at launch and ShoreTel Sky services in early calendar year 2014. For customers who are considering an upgrade to their existing premises-based solution or a move to a cloud solution, the IP 400 series phones support either deployment model or a combination of both.
