Holger Reisinger, SVP, Jabra, comments: “Jabra has long recognised that audio has an important role to play in the workplace, whether through ambient noise, during phone calls or in meetings. The future of communication, inside and outside of the workplace, will centre around voice. In the office, it will be focused on voice control and the productivity gains and seamless communication experience it can offer. Workplaces are already experiencing this to an extent, but to truly benefit, they must get their competencies right. Only if audio and voice are high quality can they stand up against the audio challenges the workplace presents.”
