Every office needs a way to communicate with the outside world: customers, vendors, suppliers, etc. And while technology is changing the way we connect with each other at a rapid pace the telephone is still, and will continue to be, a staple in offices around the world.
At TCC Telecom we are proud to sell and service the Avaya IP Office phone system; what we believe to be a perfect fit for businesses of all shapes and sizes, especially small to medium ones. Avaya offers an assortment of telephones to go along with the IP Office to meet a variety of business needs. The clear standout among these phones is the Avaya 9508 telephone. This is the phone that we sell the most of, and it’s even the phone we use in our home office. Read on to learn about some of the great features of this phone, and why it’s great for all offices.
The layout of the Avaya 9508 phone is eye-friendly and comes with paperless labeling. The charcoal gray color blends nicely in any office setting. It has a sleek, up-to-date design that will show your clients and customers, and anyone else who may see your phones, that you are up-to-date on current technology.
While both phones in the 9500 series – the 9504 and the 9508 – have a white back-lit display for easy viewing, the 9508 boasts 8 lines compared to the 4 of the 9504. This allows for easier viewing and for more programmable features.
One of the major upgrades of the Avaya 9500 series is the move to paperless labeling. Using digital labeling provides a host of benefits. For starters, digital labeling provides a clean look to your phone. No more crossed off and written over labels, missing labels, and labeling you can’t read! Secondly, when any adds/moves/changes are made to your system, instead of having to change the labels of every phone in your office, the changes display almost instantaneously on your display screen. Whether you have 5 phones or 500 phones, paperless labeling will save you time.
Full Duplex Speaker phone
Full duplex refers to the speaker phone’s ability to simultaneously receive and transmit audio signals simultaneously. You’re already accustomed to full duplex on the handset for your phone, but full duplex hasn’t always been available for speakerphones. Previously, if one person was talking on speakerphone at a time, if the other party replied while you were still speaking you would not be able to hear it. The Avaya 9508 phones are full duplex – so you will always be able to hear the other person, and they will always be able to hear you.
The Avaya 9508 phone can expand to meet the needs of your business as it grows. As is, the digital displays contain 8 buttons and 3 screens – for a total of 24 programmable buttons. If you still need more you can expand your phone with up to 3 12-button expansion modules. Do you prefer to be hands-free? The 9508 allows for headset usage, too.
Intuitive and Easy-to-Use
Technology can sometimes be hard to navigate. Avaya has designed the 9508 to be user-friendly. With the digital display and graphic buttons on the phone even a novice user will be able to navigate their way around the basic functions of the phone. It’s even simple to add personal contact directly to your phone without requiring a service call. Even though the Avaya 9508 phones are intuitive, TCC Telecom always provides training with the initial install, and we happily provide guidance after the fact to answer any questions.
Up to Date
Avaya has put out a wide array of phone series. Some of these phones, once at the forefront of the technology, are now considered outdated by the industry, and may not support the most up-to-date software releases from Avaya, or be functional on all editions of the IP Office software. Even though some of these phones are no longer recommended to sell with new phone systems, you will find companies out there selling them to their customers to cushion their profits. At TCC Telecom we always work with you to stick to your budget, but we also make sure that the products you receive will allow your company to grow and will keep up with the ever changing technology in the industry.
The main reason that the Avaya 9508 phone is our best seller? It offers the best value for your dollar. It offers all the features you would expect out of an Avaya phone, but is affordable for all sizes of businesses.
