Poly excels conferencing and collaboration technology, but they are especially forward-thinking when it comes to Unified Communication endpoints. Although they are rightly revered for their innovations in desktop phone solutions, they also understand that mobility defines modern communication. Enter the recently released Poly Elara 60 series, a mobile-first solution that can transform your smartphone into a desktop collaboration hub.
Poly Elara 60 is essentially a docking station for your mobile phone, but this station doesn’t just charge your phone. Once your mobile phone is paired with Poly Elara 60, its capabilities are extended to include headset, speakerphone and handset options. In essence, you are getting the best of both worlds: the full range of mobile collaboration capabilities with the top notch audio quality of a desktop solution.
Because let’s face it: audio quality is pretty low on the list of reasons we all love smartphones. In fact, it probably doesn’t even make the list. We love smartphones because they are convenient. And because we can meet, collaborate, and connect no matter where we are. And because those little, pocket-sized machines manage to cram a whole lot of desirable features into their tiny shapes.
Poly Elara 60 is like your smartphone’s best friend--it lets the phone do what it does best and supplements those strengths with secret powers of its own. You can not only charge your phone and pair it with a headset or handset. You can also launch Microsoft Teams with the push of a button and wirelessly stream your music when you aren’t on the line with co-workers.
With the Poly Elara 60 series app, you can customize settings and update firmware, while Plantronics Manager Pro (offered separately) allows you to track usage and inventory. All of this without so much as one extra wire or dongle. Well, you do have to plug the Elara 60 into the wall, but that’s it! Doesn’t get much simpler than that.
If you'd still like some traditional desktop phones to supplement your mobile communications strategy, check out the VVX series, which were recently certified for Google Voice.
