Spectralink introduces PIVOT, a Voice over Wi-Fi device

Spectralink, a global leader in wireless solutions for the workplace, announced today the availability of PIVOT, a revolutionary WorkSmart solution that improves workplace communication by combining smartphone-like features with the quality, durability and reliability essential for in-building mobile employees.

PIVOT expands the Spectralink portfolio of Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) handsets to deliver enterprise-grade, on-site voice mobility with a user-friendly interface on an extensible application platform.

Built on the industry-standard Android operating system, PIVOT is instantly familiar out of the box, including intuitive smartphone-like usability and access to applications.

While consumer smartphones continue to make their way into business environments, it is becoming increasingly evident that they are not always the right choice for the specialized needs of in-building mobile employees in industries such as healthcare, retail and manufacturing. Despite portability and the ability to access content on-the-go, consumer-grade smartphones lack the security, voice quality, durability and integration needed for these businesses.

PIVOT is designed to bridge the gap between smartphones and purpose-built mobile solutions. It is differentiated by its ease-of-use and ergonomic design, HD voice quality, seamless VoWi-Fi roaming, durability, broad telephony support and wireless local area network (WLAN) interoperability, and predictable return on investment (ROI).

A Spectralink application ecosystem offers specialized industry applications for users to customize their devices to their unique workflow requirements.
“PIVOT is the first device of its kind and it will transform organizations by enabling in-building mobile employees to work smarter,” said Sten Dyrmose, CEO, Spectralink.

“We have spent the past year developing PIVOT based upon customer feedback and through assessing how our handsets are used in everyday situations. Given the rigorous requirements we know our customers demand of their devices, PIVOT far surpasses the many limitations of smartphones designed for consumers,” added Dyrmose.

PIVOT is instantly familiar, purpose built and dependable. We’re confident that PIVOT will significantly improve communication and workflow and organizations will wonder how they survived without it,” commented Dyrmose.

The handsets can be easily field upgraded to new software features via a new licensing process, which allows further customization and cost savings. In partnership with the Spectralink applications development ecosystem, PIVOT opens up new opportunities for enduser productivity solutions.

PIVOT is available in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand with the list price start at $895.
