TINE started an extensive process related to telephony in 2008.
This process reduced the number of traditional desk phones and
faxes from around 3700 to 1500, and enabled them to replace
many of these with mobile or softphone/IP telephony.
Questions from employees were many and pertained to
everything from radiation from mobile telephones to comfort
and sound quality. Fortunately, solutions to these challenges
were found in the form of increased use of high quality headsets. Today, TINE has standardized headsets from one
of the markets most acknowledged manufacturers, Jabra.
Approximately 1000 employees are potential users of Jabra
headsets through the purchasing agreement.
“Health, environment and safety are important for us, and we
consider our Jabra headsets to be an important part of our
company’s growth, and a key factor in the prevention of sick
days,” says Ante Krsticevic, Purchasing Manager at TINE.
For mobile use, many TINE employees use the corded headsets
– Jabra GN2100 and Jabra BIZ™ 2400 – but some employees
choose to use Bluetooth® versions. Specifically, the softphone
users who work in TINE’s Call Center use wireless headsets
from the Jabra PRO™ 9400 Series.
The Jabra BIZ 2400 is a series of user-friendly headsets, which
are compatible with all types of telephone systems. The model’s
extremely high quality, frequency range and noise-canceling
microphone technology provide many possibilities to adapt the
headsets to different working environments.
The Jabra PRO 9400 Series is the latest state-of-the-art headset
model series from Jabra. Its unique touchscreen base can
send incoming calls to the headset from desk, softphone and
mobile phones up to 150 meters away – increasing mobility for
employees by making it easier to move around the office and
Jabra GN2100 headsets, with high quality, great flexibility, a
wide range of accessories and many unique wearing styles,
provide many options for individual adaptation.
TINE is focused on having future-oriented solutions that can
be used for a long time. Therefore, they conducted thorough
testing before deciding on a standardized solution from Jabra,
to ensure that the equipment worked properly with the rest of
their communication solution.
