3CX Phone System version 15 is on its way and with it some major improvements (not necessarily major new features like previous versions).

When I first installed 3CX version 15, I was impressed by a full redesign of their UI.  Previous version used proprietary Microsoft style design which was difficult to use on tablets and smart phones and awkward on computer browsers.   

The new 3CX ver 15 UI is brand new HTML 5 responsive.  What that means its that it shows different based on the size of your screen making it easy to use on smaller devices like smart phones.   Because we often manage phone systems on the road, management via smart phones and tablets are essential.  Before it was very frustrating.  Now – a piece of cake with large buttons for touch interfaces and  buttons that reformat depending on screen size.

Stay tuned for more information about 3CX Phone System Version 15.

Unboxing the VTech VSP505 Commercial Cordless DECT Headset

vtech-vsp505-cordless-dect-headset

The best thing about this headset is that its a quarter of the price of other commercial cordless headsets.  Its also DECT and not Bluetooth.  Whats great about that is the range.  Bluetooth range is up to 15meters where as DECT is 100 meters.

 

It comes with 3 different sized ear hooks and 6 adapters that fit in your ear.

The noise-canceling microphone – Block out distracting background noise with advanced noise-canceling technology.

The headset has advanced remote functions including mute, flash and volume controls – Easy, one-button mute, flash and volume controls right on the headset enhance hands-free convenience.

The headset will automatically hang-up when cradled in the magnetic charging cradle

This headset is only compatible with VSP725 ErisTerminal and Advanced VSP735 ErisTerminal Deskphones

We think that these two desk phones are by far the best business phones available for retail stores, small businesses and home businesses.  The addition of this VSP505 commercial headset makes the phones incredibly useful for reception and frees up hands for typing or to wander and get a cup of joe.
