A crazy success!

“The Konftel Ego is a crazy success! There’s no other way to describe the market’s reaction to the launch. It’s in huge demand in Sweden and all the Nordic countries. Quite simply, it’s a product that users have been waiting and longing for,” explains Ulrika Larsén, Business Manager at Brightstar.

Even though it was the holiday period, the orders came streaming in as soon as it was launched.
“It usually takes slightly longer for a launch to get up to speed in the summer, but the Konftel Ego was selling like hotcakes from the word go. I think the reason it’s such a success is that we have a combination of Konftel, which is well-known for its high quality, and this smart, efficient product. Anyone whose work involves remote meetings and conferences knows what Konftel stands for. So it doesn’t surprise me,” Ulrika says.

Meetings and music

The size and performance of the Konftel Ego are perfect for today’s modern, mobile culture of meetings. It can be quickly and easily connected to a mobile phone, tablet or PC to hold meetings with crystal-clear HD audio. Thanks to its platform independence, the Konftel Ego is ideal for meetings using Skype for Business, Cisco Jabber, Avaya Communicator and other conferencing tools. Naturally, this versatile little device has a USB port for connection to a PC or other compatible USB equipment.

“The way in which we work has changed. We are mobile, out travelling, staying at hotels and working from home. The Konftel Ego supports this flexible way of working as it’s wireless and very handy to take along for use anywhere. Once all the work’s out the way and it’s time to relax with some music, it makes a perfect loudspeaker too. Apart from its outstanding quality, this is a very cool piece of technology,” Ulrika tells us.

No more poor sound quality

“Everyone knows from experience that mobile phone speakers do not offer the optimal solution for conference calls. You can hold a meeting just as easily using the Konftel Ego and the audio quality is in a league of its own. Nowadays, we’re used to small, easy-to-operate devices, so I’m certain this is going to be a best-seller for Konftel.”
