Plantronics announced recently a new series of contact center headset solutions designed for the heroes of the customer service.

In addition, Plantronics likewised announced their next-generation DA Series USB digital audio processors for Plantronics headsets that deliver a more complete audio experience by providing context for every call. With these new Plantronics customer service solutions, organizations improve metrics, attract and retain Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) and create a better customer experience.
Smart phones and self-service have shifted the balance of power in the customer service center — before reaching out to the CSR, a customer might have more information at hand because they researched already prior to engaging the customer service. In these case, customers want their issue resolved quickly. They consider their call an escalation putting extraordinary pressure on the agent to perform, even while the customer i s likely in a mobile environment with questionable audio quality.
Josh Doctolero, Plantronics Philippines
The Plantronics EncorePro 500 Series was created with the CSR in mind. It features a forward-looking, professional grade industrial design that uses new materials and technologies that yield an ergonomic fit that is extraordinarily durable, lightweight, and comfortable for all-day wearing. With fewer reasons to remove the headset throughout the day, CSRs are ready for each call, with the boom being in the right place for a better customer conversation. The noise-canceling technology ensures more focused and private calls, so conversations will be heard clearly with fewer misunderstood words and with reduced background noise from keyboards and close talkers.
The series includes the following models: EncorePro 510/520 (dedicated over-the-head), EncorePro 530 (over-the-ear) and EncorePro 540 (convertible), the latter is unique in its simple design and high-performance audio no matter what the preferred wearing style. All models support wideband audio.
