How Headsets can improve business productivity and efficiency

Thanks to mobile devices, medium-sized organisations can conduct business anywhere and at any time, whether it is to make calls, video or web conference or share files.

Headsets for business efficiency and productivity - Office Phone Shop

The only thing they can’t control is the environment, so having a headset ensures audio clarity at the most crucial times. For those with flexible work options, headsets can help to enhance productivity and efficiency.

  • Headsets provide users with the option of hands-free working. This could include inputting important information onto the computer whilst taking a call, locating a document required for the discussion, or to engage in chat whilst conferencing.
  • With wireless headsets, individuals can even move freely throughout the office whilst on a call. This allows them to, for example, locate a file, collect a document from the printer, or move to a more private location.
  • Using a Bluetooth headset means being able to answer a call, safely, whilst driving.
  • Headsets can also help manage multiple communication devices, including office phone, smartphone and services, such as Skype.
  • Clear audio is often essential between listeners and in these situations, headsets can make the difference.

How to choose the right audio device for your employees.

The type of headset you choose depends on the devices you use.

  • Do you require a versatile headset that works across multiple devices, or one that works with a single device only?
  • If your employees are desk-based and do not need to move around the office when making a call, you can choose a corded variety over cordless.
  • Some headset devices are only suitable for in-office use, therefore, employees working remotely, or who are often out on the road, would require a Bluetooth device.
  • Your office environment itself can also determine the type of headsets you choose. For example, an open plan office could potentially require the need for a stereo-over-the-head headset, to block out the noise.
