VXi Corporation, a provider of best-in-class telecommunication and speech recognition solutions for contact centers, recently added a new product to its BlueParrott Bluetooth product line. Called the BlueParrott Xpressway II Bluetooth headset, this model incorporates a number of features designed to make it more comfortable and easy to use than comparable competing wireless headsets.
The Xpressway II's new earhook design, for example, allows users to wear it on the year, rather than the commonly seen in-ear style. It can also be worn in over-the-head and behind-the-neck styles, allowing users to pick the most comfortable fit.
As the name would suggest, the Xpressway II builds on the popular BlueParrott Xpress and as such shares some similarities with its predecessor. For example, both headsets weigh the same at just 0.6 ounces, but the Xpressway II is still able to offer 94 percent noise cancellation due to its Xtreme Noise Suppression technology.
It also sports wideband audio, which offers clear and natural communication, and seven hours of talk time on a single charge.
“The BlueParrott Xpressway II is a great example of how VXi is working to provide our customers with the greatest selection of headsets on the market,” said Mike Ferguson, VXi president and CEO, in a statement. “The Xpressway II offers our unmatched noise-cancelation technology coupled with a variety of comfortable options for use.”
VXi also recently released a new corded headset, the UC ProSet LUX, which builds upon the original UC ProSet to offer greater efficiency in unified communications applications. For example, the new UC ProSet LUX uses patent pending LED telepresence indication to notify others of the user's availability, lighting up green if available, orange when on a call or red for do not disturb.
In December, the company celebrated hiring 1,000 employees at its call center in Canton, Ohio, with a ceremony, as well as plans to hire another 400 at that location.
