Plantronics has introduced their newest over-the-head Unified Communications wireless headset system for Call Centres, designed to help representatives, supervisors and subject matter experts improve customer service through real-time collaboration.

The Plantronics Savi enables customer service representatives to simultaneously listen and communicate on both their UC client and deskphone. The vendor says this is the first and only headset on the market that enables seamless switching and mixing of calls from different audio sources and that the new Savi increases efficiency and ROI (return on investment) with better first call resolution and greater customer satisfaction.

“Savi is the ideal product to help Call Centres improve First Call Resolution through Acoustic intelligence and increased collaboration.” Comments Richard Kenny, who manages the Plantronics contact centre portfolio in Europe. “The combination of DSP and noise cancelling microphone will greatly improve speech clarity and eliminate mistakes; And the ability to mix in a subject matter expert will help call centres find the right information quickly to solve customer issues.”

“Specifically designed for intensive phone users with all day wearing in mind, the new Savi comfortably rests over-the-head for all-day use and features an extended range that allows users to roam away from their desks and talk hands-free while staying fully connected. In addition, the headset includes an adaptive power system that reduces overall energy consumption, extends battery life and provides users more time to talk.

In order to deliver the very best in business-critical sound quality on both sides of the call, the Savi features enhanced speaker design and a noise-cancelling microphone that filters distracting background noise, providing lifelike fidelity with users’ wideband PC audio. For complete peace of mind, the new headset also includes Noise@ Work functionality that’s activated in every unit.

Plantronics Savi helps call centre agents easily manage their calls with the company’s new software, PerSono® Suite, which lets users mix PC and desk phone calls, mute a call, or put a call on hold with just one simple click of a button. In addition, Savi CC users can personalise their PerSono Suite and save ring tones, volume levels, and default settings.”

Like its predecessors in the Savi product family, the new over-the-head Savi CC has variants that support UC offerings from leading providers, including Avaya, Cisco, IBM, and Microsoft, and other popular services such as Skype.
