Jabra has announced an upgrade to its newest product series, Jabra Evolve. Jabra Evolve is a series of professional noise-cancellation headsets supporting both the collaboration and concentration needs of knowledge workers in open office environments. In use with Skype for Business, Jabra Evolve can support call transfer from a Skype for Business desktop-based softphone call to a smartphone. To transfer a call using the Evolve 40 and Evolve 80, simply unplug the 3.5mm stereo jack stick from its control unit and the call will transfer to the user’s mobile phone. Users can then insert the 3.5mm jack into the smartphone to continue the conversation or even continue the conversation using a Jabra Bluetooth headset.

With Jabra Intelligent Call Transfer, that experience now follows the end-user when they are required to move a call from one environment to another – and need to leave their main work station.

“The Jabra Intelligent Call Transfer feature is a natural evolution to the Jabra Evolve feature set. The headset series primary functionality remains to create that personal “concentration zone” in open, loud and distracting workspaces,” said Nigel Dunn, Jabra UK & Ireland Managing Director. “The Jabra Intelligent Call Transfer upgrade for Skype for Business extends end-user confidence of being in control of their device environment as they bring their “concentration zone” with them.”

“We are pleased to see Jabra deliver their Intelligent Call Transfer solution and extend the communications experience with Skype for Business to enable a modern way of communicating for our customers,” said Giovanni Mezgec, General Manager of Skype for Business Product Marketing at Microsoft.
