IT departments can now save a great amount of time with Jabra Xpress that allows IT Managers to remotely deploy, update, and manage an unlimited number of headsets at once and from one location.
(SINGAPORE, 8 JULY, 2013)– With the introduction of Jabra Xpress – an industry first – IT Managers can now remotely deploy, update and manage devices from one location with a web-based interface.Jabra Xpress is standard feature when purchasing Jabra headsets. Unlike previous methods of deploying headsets, which involved a user or IT professional manually installing software on each computer, Jabra enables mass deployments of software or individual settings from a central location. Jabra Xpress integrates seamlessly with Microsoft standards creating less of a headache for the end user IT team because it leverages the strength of the Microsoft platform.
The benefits of using Jabra Xpress:
· Remote deployment saves time
As an industry first, Jabra Xpress eliminates time consuming, manual deployment of headsets. Studies show that an IT professional can manually deploy no more than 50 headsets a day. For a company with 1,000 users, this translates into an 8-days deployment process. With Jabra Xpress, that company can remotely deploy the same 1,000 headsets in half a day*.
· Unlimited deployment of many devices at once
Whether it is 50 headsets or 5,000 or more, Jabra Xpress allows IT departments to remotely deploy a virtually unlimited number of devices at one time. Xpress is based on standard Microsoft technology (MSI/WMI) and compatible with all leading deployment systems, including Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).
· Easily adds new features and functionality
With Jabra Xpress, IT departments can remotely add new and future features and functionality to their users’ headsets. IT professionals can easily deploy Value Packs, which add new product features, or Service Packs, which enhance existing features. Customers receive both free of charge.
