In January 2017, when Allworx launched the Allworx Verge phone line, I put forth a thesis: “in order for the next-generation of business phones to stay relevant in modern workplaces, they need to work seamlessly with mobile devices” published in a blog titled “Is This the End of Desk Phones as We Know Them?”
During an emergency, getting critical information to the right people at the right time can make a significant difference. And while many schools are taking steps to improve safety and security, one of the most critical aspects may likely be overlooked — the school phone system.
Author’s Note: (June 2020) With the release of Allworx® Interact Softphone™, it’s a good time to make a few updates to this posting. Although the majority of this document deals with the headset options for Allworx® Verge™ IP Phones, Interact Softphone allows clients to use their Windows PC as a phone and has different headset compatibility requirements. That new information is now included in the post. The Allworx Verge IP phones support both wired and wireless headsets. Furthermore, the Verge 9312 IP phone supports two types of wireless headsets: connections via Bluetooth devices and connections through the headset port which use wireless base stations.
