"Our certification with Metaswitch will help bring more affordable, high-quality SIP options to cloud service providers and end customers throughout the Americas region," said Chad Collins, vice president of sales, Americas, VTech Communications. "Together, Metaswitch's hosted UC solutions and VTech phones can help meet more customer needs, as well as increase flexibility and productivity in the workplace."
Cost-effective and easy to use, new ET600 Series family of SIP desksets (ET605, ET635 and ET685) seamlessly scale from small office to enterprise level businesses. VTech backs the ET600 Series with North American based sales, technical and support teams, as well as an industry-leading three-year warranties. These robust phones include color LCD screens and dedicated feature keys to enable convenient call handling. Zero touch provisioning allows for easy installation.
The ET685 ErisTerminal SIP Color Deskset helps people manage and delegate calls on a daily basis. Employees can easily handle multiple calls via a 4.3-inch color LCD screen, 10 clear lines of information and four soft keys. The ET685 can also simultaneously support up to 12 SIP lines or accounts from a single setup. A second LCD screen gives users access to four pages of six self-labeling feature keys for instant access to programmable functions, eliminating the requirement for an additional side car deployment.
DECT Mobility – Key System Functionality
Small businesses can easily deploy and use the VDP650 Series phones, which fulfill a previously unaddressed need for active employees. These phones provide complete communication mobility without sacrificing the familiarity of traditional desktop setups. Key system emulation on the VDP651 cordless handset enables someone to place a call on hold with one button, and then retrieve the call from another device. An employee can easily direct a call made to a main number to another employee without interruption. From there, an employee can answer, hold or transfer the incoming call directly from the handset.
"We designed the VDP650 Series as an easy-to-learn solution for busy workplaces. Small businesses like pizza shops, retail stores and auto body shops will likely find this system the perfect tool to improve customer service and internal communications," said Collins. "It's easy to handle multiple calls, and always know who's on hold and who needs attention."
