Bangalore, April 5 2017: This is one unusual desktop communication device, looking unlike any phone you may have seen. The Avaya Vantage is an all glass 8 inch touch screen, with no visible mechanical buttons. It occupies a very small footprint on the desk or it can be wall mounted with a detachable cradle and a corded or cordless handset.
Users can fire up voice, chat, collaboration instantly through one touch connections with no unnatural breaks or pauses – eliminating the need to manage multiple devices in order to engage.
The device is the latest in collaborative communications with an integrated video camera for face-to-face conferencing or business related calls, operating on both wired or wireless networks including Bluetooth.
Avaya's BreezeTM Client SDK, a software development kit allows enterprises to customise it for any business environment vertical -- healthcare or hospitality suggest themselves. In the demo of the product at its launch last month, Avaya simulated a high-end Guest Experience in a hotel, where a guest can access room service, travel desk, front desk, concierge -- all in a seamless fashion, drilling down to look at the in room dining menu, organising a day trip or booking a tour guide or a car all d from the guest room Vantage device.
The company did not share a price, but the device is known to sell abroad for around $ 600.
