In this age of technology-based interactions, the need for physical office locations is diminishing. At the same time, consumers still have an expectation of how a company should appear in terms of size and scope. To battle this contradiction and maintain a healthy balance, a number of companies are turning to the implementation of a Virtual Office.


One of the most important elements of the Virtual Office is the quality of the voice communications. Independent service providers and handset manufacturers are touting the benefits of High Definition Voice and what it can mean for business communications. While the benefits are definitely there, not all networks are ready to handle this bandwidth consuming technology.

To ensure companies can gain the most from HD voice options, they should partner with the right provider who understands the challenges of implementing this technology before the network is ready. To provide clients and prospects with a better understanding, Phone.com, a hosted IP-PBX provider, is participating in a panel at 2010 CES (News - Alert) entitled, “HD Voice Summit at the 2010 CES: Communicating the Future.”
 
This session is designed to provide companies with the ups and downs of high-definition voice communications and what the future holds for this technology. Carriers throughout the world are offering phone calls with FM-quality sound through broadband and mobile services. As firms implement Virtual Office, will they enjoy this high quality communications, or will they run into challenges in deployment?

To learn what this technology offers and the potential challenges that could bar total implementation, this session is not one to miss. Alon Cohen (News - Alert), Phone.com’s chief technology officer, is slated to serve on the panel along with Polycom’s Jeff Rodman and Consumer Electronics Association’s (News - Alert) Ben Arnold. The session is scheduled for Jan. 6 at 4:45 in the LVCC North Hall. Moderator is Doug Mohney, editor-in-chief of HD Voice News.

As companies plan to implement a Virtual Office, Phone.com (News - Alert) is a good place to start as this proven provider can help you design exactly what you need to fit your business and your customers’ expectations. If HD Voice is something on a list of must-haves, Phone.com can show firms how best to maximize their solution so they can focus on their core business.
