If you are one of the many people who handle an overwhelming amount of incoming calls for a living then you can understand that sometimes what your phone comes with, it’s always enough.

Every now and then we think of how much easier our jobs would be if we just had a little extra help. An example would be having two monitors on your desk instead of one. Another might be having your own stapler instead of having to walk to the printer every time you needed to staple something.

All of these things are nice to have, and sure, they would help make our lives easier. But, the reality is that we can probably still do our daily tasks even without them. And if …

In the past, I have written blogs about the importance of customizing your workplace. One of the best ways to do this is bringing in pictures from home, and even changing the wallpaper on your deskphone!

This process usually falls into the category of “basic” when dealing with most IP phones, and the same goes for the Yealink CP960. The only difference is this is a conference phone, and not like;y to be on your desk!

What I thought was cool is that even though this is a conference phone, and most likely to be used by several different people around the office, it is still fully customizable. Everything from the wallpaper to the ringtone to so much more!

For this blog, we will …

It is hard to imagine a job that doesn’t need a phone. There are an endless amount of different and unique jobs our there, but I’m pretty sure every one of them, one way or another, needs a phone in some capacity of the business.

For this blog, I want to focus on the jobs that are not set in a cushy air conditioned office. Instead, I want to talk about the jobs that need wireless phones, or better yet, wireless VoIP phones.

What is the first job that comes to mind when you think of wireless phones? For me, I immediately thought of a construction job. Because construction can get messy, I would also have to assume that the wireless phones they are using …

It is hard to imagine life without Caller ID. I know I am not alone when I say that I barely know anyone’s actual phone number anymore. Once they are added to my contact list, their name is all that matters.

These days, the same can be applied to your desk phone at work, with the power of VoIP technology, you are able to use your desk phone just like you would use your personal cell phone.

Most of the time, these phones have just about every feature your cell phone has, and in some cases, even more features! I have written past blogs about IP phones having cameras, recording video, and even custom ringtones in the past, so I know the possibilities are basically …

The world is full of millions and millions of jobs. A lot of those jobs are very different from one another but it’s also fair to say that a lot of those jobs are similar or at least look similar.

There can be tons of jobs that involve a desk, a computer, and a phone, but that doesn’t mean the people sitting at those desks are all doing the same work. Sometimes we need different programs on our computers, and sometimes, we even need our phones to do different things.

By now I’m sure you are all aware of what desk phone can do these days with the power of VoIP, so I won’t get into the fancy-pants features that some people need, or want, …

WiFi phones are becoming all the rage in the VoIP world these days. If your business uses VoIP service then chances are you have a WiFi phone somewhere in your building.

As I have said in past blogs, WiFi phones are especially useful for warehouses and medical facilities because of their ability to carry them wherever the job takes you. Most WiFi phones have decent range on them, but through in a WiFi access point or two, and you can really go wherever you need in your office and always be able to answer the phone.

While these sound awesome (because they kind of are) they are by no means a ‘plug-and-play’ phone right out of the box. There is some configuring that you will …

Have you ever looked at your desk phone and wondered why there is a blinking red light? Or maybe a flashing green light? I feel like when it comes to weird blinky things there are two different types of people. Either you just say “Ehh, it’s always been that way” or “why is this blinking! It’s never blinked before!”

Either way, if something is grabbing your attention, then it is probably a good idea to know what it is trying to tell you. Even if it means knowing how to make it stop so the guy next to you with OCD leaves you alone.

No matter what phone you have on your desk when it comes to notifications they are all generally similar. So let’s …

Statistically speaking, most of us will spend around 90,000 hours of our lives working. Some of us will spend most of that time in an office, or at a desk. What I can’t tell you is how much of that time you will spend daydreaming about being somewhere else.

While I’m sure it would add up to a couple thousand hours, one thing we can say for sure if that it is important to have things with us at work that remind us why we get up and go through the grind week-in and week-out.

Maybe a picture? Or a souvenir from a memorable trip? No matter what it is, you have to have a little bit of your own personality on your desk, but …

If you have a desk phone, then chances are you have a headset. I can’t even imagine someone who still uses their handset at work. It is a thing of the past, and honestly, maybe we should get rid of the handset all together.

Okay, maybe that is going a little too far, but having a headset for your desk is something everyone should (and most likely does) have. It is something that is relatively inexpensive and can make your day flow much easier.

There are all types of headsets out there.  Some people are fine with having a basic wired headset, while other people can’t live without the freedom of going wireless.  The preference comes down a matter of how often you get up

What if I asked you what your most important piece of technology is? You would have to say your smartphone, right? Smartphones have become an essential part of our lives. They are almost an extension of ourselves!

If know everyone, at one point or another, has had that sinking feeling when you reach for your phone and it’s not there. It has to be one of the worst feelings in the world! And thinking about how upsetting forgetting or losing your phone makes you feel has to make you wonder how we ever got through a day in our lives without one!

Now that I have you checking to make sure you have your smartphone on you, my next question is when is it hardest …
