Konftel makes remote meetings easier with a new conference phone and mobile app
The Konftel 300IPx and Konftel Unite mobile app make managing meetings radically easier . One click is all it takes to join a meeting.
The long phone numbers, codes and commands that are sometimes associated with telephone conferences can leave users feeling stressed. The actual conference phone in the meeting room can also be unfamiliar to users, creating uncertainty. But it is stumbling blocks like these that Konftel has eliminated with its new IP conference phone and mobile app.
Konftel Unite is designed for easy management of the Konftel 300IPx. Call contacts or groups from a personal phonebook and operate the features of the phone during the meeting – all from a mobile phone. Easily start or join a remote meeting that’s scheduled in a calendar. At the touch of a button, the Konftel 300IPx makes the calls and dials the meeting codes.
“We call it One Touch Conferencing. It should be as simple as this to meet remotely, and still enjoy exceptional audio quality,” says Stefan Eriksson, Marketing and Communications Manager at Konftel.
Comfortable and convenient
“You feel comfortable and at ease with your own mobile phone and we've incorporated this familiarity into the Konftel 300IPx. I can't think of a better user interface for a conference phone at present,” says Torbjörn Karlsson, Product Manager at Konftel.
“Simply install Konftel Unite as you would any other app and it's completely free. Connecting to a Konftel 300IPx is simple and is done in an instant. You then manage the meeting via the phone in your hand.”
The Konftel 300IPx is the latest version of the highly-popular IP conference phone, the Konftel 300IP. In addition to One Touch Conferencing via the app, the Konftel 300IPx has everything that’s needed for high-quality, efficient distance meetings. Thanks to connectivity options for loudspeaker equipment, wireless headsets and expansion microphones, it is ideal for rooms of all sizes, up to large auditoriums. In addition, the Konftel 300IPx has an integrated conference bridge for five-way calls and the patented OmniSound® audio technology that delivers crystal-clear, natural HD audio.
The Konftel 300IPx has a USB port, which makes it perfect for Skype for Business, Cisco, Avaya and other computer-based meeting tools. It is simple to configure and upgrade via the web and it supports auto-provisioning. The Konftel 300IPx comes with a two-year warranty.
