A steady uptick in headset use, and the rise of unified communications platforms such as Skype for Business, Lync, Cisco Jabber, (and many more), have contributed to the need for Busylights in office environments around the world, especially in the prevalent open office design.
It rings and flashes on incoming calls preventing missed calls.
It provides visual presence to the open office, stopping interruptions.
The Busylight software (Skype for Business only) provides valuable hot key functions for easy call handling.
Plenom has announced that it recently updated the free software for the Busylights and KuandoBOX. The new software features include:
Mute on Away – When in the ‘Away’ state, Busylight will not ring – nice for your neighbor!
Brightness Setting – Easily control the brightness of your Busylight
Default volume for Omega will now be set at 25%
Default brightness for Alpha is lowered from high to normal.
What's the difference between the Alpha and the Omega? The Alpha Busylight has a smaller profile and features a smart click On/Off system for monitors/ laptops. The Omega Busylight has a larger light and is ideally suited for cubicles. KuandoBOX unifies your presence by connecting to both desk phone and computer, to update user’s status to "Busy" in Skype for Business / Lync when talking on the desk phone.

Plenom is currently at work on a NEW Busylight for Apple Mac computers. We will let you know when these are available!
Are you using Cisco Finesse contact center software with Jabra headsets?
If you answered "yes," then the new Jabra CC Agent App is essential for your organization! The app integrates with both Jabra call controllers and Cisco Finesse contact center software. This app eliminates extra steps on the desktop, so that contact center agents are able to completely focus on calls – with the touch of a button. Software offerings such as this continue to push Jabra to the forefront of the headset market, and with its acquisition of VXi, looks to give Plantronics (currently the #1 headset brand in the United States) some fierce competition.
Jabra CC Agent App is a small application that, when installed on the Cisco Finesse Call Center softphone server, enables agents to control these three Finesse softphone features directly from their Jabra headset control boxes:
•Ready/Not Ready state (toggle) When changing the Ready/Not Ready state from the control box during an ongoing call, the contact center agent can, after the call, see the Ready/Not Ready state change in the Finesse browser.
•Record Call (if call recording function has been enabled in Finesse). Quickly choose to record the call with the press of a button, which is crucial for sensitive calls and for training purposes.
(Note that only two functions can be available at a time, which are selected by the Cisco Finesse server administrator, when installing the Jabra CC Agent App.)
The CC Agent App is compatible with Jabra Biz 2300 or Biz 2400 II headsets, or any Jabra headset when connected to a Link 260.
This software download is FREE and available at Jabra’s web site here: Jabra CC Agent App.
