We realize that while this wearing style isn't for everyone, it will be great for those who are accustomed to ear buds and like the comfort and subtlety (there isn't an obvious "headset") that ear buds offer.

With 2019 now firmly established, we took this opportunity to look with fresh eyes at our business, our customers, and our thoughts about what we resolve to do in this new year.
Let's dive in:
1. We resolve to continue to provide stellar customer service.
Our Customer Care team is committed to our customers. We anticipate customers' needs and have product on hand and ready to ship. Sample units are sent when customers are unsure of what they need; and our 30-day money-back guarantee makes sure our customers are happy with the products that they purchased.
2. We resolve to give our customers more than they ask for.
We know which promotions give customers the best deals, making those budgets stretch farther. In working closely with our brands, our headset experts are aware of new product releases and features that help customers work smarter. We provide information via our blog and YouTube channel that adds value to our product offerings.
3. We resolve to answer all questions quickly and completely.
Whether you connect with us through the Internet, by phone, in person, or through email, our goal has always been to help customers through each purchase, tech support question, or warranty issue. Pre-sales support is mission critical, and customers receive what they need so they are able to open the box and use products immediately. What's a quick disconnect cord? Which headset works best with my phone? Why is my wireless headset making a beeping noise? Can I use a headset with my hearing aid? These questions are common, and our goal is to provide useful, comprehensive answers.
4. We resolve to tell our customers what they need to hear, and not just what they want to hear.
If we don't have the product on hand, we will let you know that delivery will be delayed. If we don't know the answer, we will tell you. (And then, we will research until we find the answer.) If we made a mistake, we will admit it. Our guiding principle at Avcomm Solutions is integrity.
5. We resolve to provide information that is essential to business productivity.
We share what we know. While some experts say "Leave it to us" we say "Let us share our knowledge with you." The Avcomm Solutions blog, YouTube channel, and social media sites Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, are updated continuously with valuable information that benefits our customers. Information such as, how to change a battery in a wireless headset to which Active Noise Canceling headsets are available for office environments, headsets are our focus and specialty, and we love to talk about them!

We are grateful for your business, and your trust in us! Here's to another successful year!
Five years ago, it was proclaimed that customers would no longer call into businesses; that they would prefer to find support via email, social and Chat channels, and organizations scrambled to train and ramp up those areas in their call centers (updating the terminology to "contact centers").
Yet, here it is, almost 2019, and it turns out, customers are still calling businesses when they need help. Research has shown that customers start with online assistance for simple questions; however, as matters become more complicated, phone calls remain the preferred way to contact companies. This means that customer service agents are expected to know more detailed information and handle longer, complex calls. The pressure to produce results in a cost-efficient manner means that data analytics are crucial.
With this in mind, Jabra engineered a headset that meets these needs by offering digital sound, data analytics, Busylights on the ear speakers, and is comfortable to wear through long, demanding calls. The Engage 50 corded headset is available in both Mono and Duo versions and ends in USB-C. The generous-sized leatherette ear cushions have a conical design, so that the cushions rest securely on the ear.
How is the Engage 50 a Digital Headset?
A processing chip in the headset — rather than in a control unit or cord — makes the Engage 50 a digital headset. While most wireless headsets are already digital headsets, the Engage 50 is the first Jabra corded headset to have the chip in the headset itself. The Engage 50 uses the very latest chipset, and this, along with the positioning of the chip, delivers enhanced functionality and user experience. Along with Jabra Direct and Jabra Xpress, call analytics for the business, and on-screen microphone positioning guidance for the agents, are provided. A great headset, along with Jabra software, improves customer satisfaction.
Jabra Xpress 2.0 is designed for IT professionals to 100 percent remotely manage Jabra USB headsets and speakerphones with a set of smart tools. Xpress keeps different devices, across multiple locations and with numerous users, always updated with the latest firmware. Xpress offers easy mass deployment and agile maintenance. It works no matter the platform you work with, or whether you’re working from your own premises, your own cloud-based service, or the Jabra cloud. And, call analytics received from individual headset users help your management team make data-based decisions to improve agent productivity and the customer call experience. These comprehensive insights include background noise, speech analytics, headset usage analytics and audio exposure.
Jabra Direct 2.0 is a user-friendly desktop interface offering complete integration of your softphone and headset. The Jabra Direct dashboard is a user friendly status menu available from the desktop notification area, typically accessed via the lower right corner of the desktop.The dashboard shows the status of your headset, if any updates are available, and if your softphone(s) are ready for use. By clicking your Jabra device in the dashboard, you will be linked into the Jabra Direct main application for managing setting preferences, start firmware updates or access applications that are available for your headsets.
And did we mention, these software programs are available at no cost, for both Mac and Windows platforms?

High-noise work environments can be intense. Whether it’s driving down the road in an 18-wheeler or working in a noisy warehouse – and other similarly loud environments – error-free communication and collaboration is challenging. Most of us are faced with colleague interruptions that impact productivity, but workers in high-noise environments are also faced with interruptions from equipment, or unconventional surroundings. Safety regulations in the workplace are progressively more restrictive and workers in high-noise environments have indicated that easy, hands-free group communication is of the utmost importance.
BlueParrott mobility-focused headsets are solving these challenges for people in a variety of industries: professional drivers, utility technicians, retail floor help, hotel housekeepers and concierge staff, and warehouse order pickers. BlueParrott, a leader in intelligent and rugged headsets, offers microphones with unrivaled noise-cancelling technology and deliver superior call quality in high-noise environments. These headsets connect to rugged smartphones, tablets and mobile computers, land mobile radios, handheld scanners, and other mobile devices.
Professional Truck Drivers
Professional truck drivers have preferred BlueParrott headsets for years.Strong and stable enough for life on the road, the wireless Bluetooth headsets feature long battery life and up to 24 hours of talk time (depending upon the headset). With hands-free call and text bans in effect around the U.S., drivers of all kinds – from local delivery drivers to Over-the-Road truckers – must use headsets for communicating.
Another recommended headset is new to the market: the B550-XT, the world’s first 100% hands-free headset. Simply by saying “Hello BlueParrott,” tell your headset to “Call” contacts within your phone’s Address Book. In addition, the C400-XT is a great choice for people who prefer a choice in wearing style: the C400-XT can be worn behind the neck (over the left or right ears), and over-the-head.
Field Service Workers
Construction workers, foremen, linemen, and others who work on job sites would all benefit from the use of these same headsets.
Retail and Hospitality Staff
The C400-XT is the perfect hands-free, Bluetooth-enabled headset for those who clean hotel rooms, concierge staff, and retail sales floor workers. Its discreet profile, and trio of wearing style options, offer some flexibility and customization.
Warehouse Operators and Order Pickers
The headset needed for these workers depends upon the picking device that’s being used, and so there are 2 categories for the warehouse worker: Corded or Bluetooth Wireless.
Corded headsets include the VR11, VR12, and VR12F, a freezer-rated headset for environments down to -22 degrees. These headsets have been “drop and tumble tested,” having been dropped 8.2 feet onto concrete across the operating temperature range, and tossed 500 times across approximately 3 feet for 1,000 hits.
If the connection type needed is Bluetooth, then these wireless headsets are recommended: B550-XT, B450-XT and C400-XT.
Supported by the latest in headset technology
Keep BlueParrott headsets updated (via USB) with the free software program, BlueParrott Updater. Install the BlueParrott Updater on your computer (either PC or Mac), and ensure your BlueParrott headset always has the latest features and functions. The BlueParrott Updater download is available free, here: BlueParrott Updater.
The BlueParrott App is available in Apple and Android versions, at no cost. If your headset has a Parrott Button, customize the operation of the Button within the app. The headset is configured out-of-the-box with the Parrott Button configured to mute, and will mute the microphone while both off or on a call.
There is a walkie-talkie feature as well. For all Parrott Button questions, refer to the Help page: Parrott Button How-To
Each headset is protected with a one-year warranty for peace of mind.
