Elegant Ergonomic Design
Since communications are a key aspect of business activity, a phone should feel comfortable and be easy to use. The ShoreTel attention to design detail delivers a precisionbalanced, contoured handset which can rest comfortably against the ear, thereby maximizing productivity while minimizing user fatigue and shoulder and neck pain.
The desk phone itself has a gentle concave sweep, which positions the keypad horizontally for ease of dialing while keeping the display at the optimum angle for visibility. The control face on all ShoreTel phones make it easy for users to manage communication tasks, including call transfer, conferencing and call parking.
Intuitively Streamlines and Improves Communications
All ShoreTel phones have an easy to read display so users can see who is calling, check for missed calls and messages and quickly see the call’s status. This helps keep communication flowing across the organization. All desk phones also feature an integrated Ethernet switch that allows a network drop to be shared with a desktop PC.
ShoreTel IP Phones feature crystal-clear audio quality, and offer seven full octaves of sound, while many phones only offer three. In addition, ShoreTel high-fidelity, full-duplex speakerphones deliver exceptionally clear audio and enable hands-free conversation. All phones also support multiple languages.
Ease of Use Streamlines Communications Management
All ShoreTel phones interoperate with ShoreTel system software, so settings, call handling rules, presence information, automatic directory updates and other features can be managed according to users’ preferences. For instance, users can extend the power of their phone far beyond their desks by assigning their extension to any phone, including a mobile phone or home phone.
In addition to a full range of desk phones, ShoreTel offers a DECT-based cordless phone for users whose job role requires them to move around the workplace.
Designed for the Distributed Enterprise
Select ShoreTel phones can easily be deployed remotely utilizing the built-in VPN client providing the full ShoreTel experience in the remote or home office.
Select models support XML applications that allow developers to integrate the phones even tighter into their business processes to boost the productivity of their users.
