Make Your Mobile Phone Work Harder at Work

Don’t just use your phone “at work,” use it to “do work.”

With more than 2.7 billion smartphones across the globe, mobile technology continues to push boundaries and open up new possibilities for users. From the first video conferencing calls in the late 1920’s, to the invention of the first mobile service 70 years ago in 1949, mobile devices have evolved to be the most flexible and efficient methods of communication.

The Poly Elara 60 Series – now available in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the EU – is an entirely new category of device, designed to use the mobile phone as the hub for enterprise collaboration. This mobile phone station is a native Microsoft Teams device that receives Microsoft Teams notifications and provides a one-touch or voice-activated Microsoft Teams experience.

Microsoft Teams is already used by over 500,000 organizations worldwide. The Microsoft Teams button on the Poly Elara 60 Series quickly launches the Microsoft Teams app on your smartphone and the button flashes if you’ve missed a call or have a voicemail. And for your video calls, the Poly Elara 60 Series’ adjustable platform lets you change your camera angle, so you show up in your video meetings in the best way possible.

For mobile-first workers, a “desk phone-like” experience with your mobile phone is critical. The Poly Elara 60 Series offers exactly this, enabling seamless transition between mobile and desk phone setups to ensure important conversations are never disrupted. Our enterprise grade audio options – headset, speakerphone or handset – also give you all the technology you need, while taking up minimal desk real estate.

Anyone who uses their mobile phone throughout the day knows that low-battery anxiety can be a daily struggle. We’ve removed that concern by embedding wired and wireless charging into the Poly Elara 60 Series, so your phone stays charged all day and colleagues aren’t left wondering why they can’t get hold of you.

Mobile-first working no longer just means taking calls from a local coffee shop.  Mobile phones are a powerful tool that can enable productivity and collaboration both in and out of the office. Our offices are being reinvented and employees expect these environments to be as versatile as possible. As we touch down in our desktop office settings, Poly’s Elara 60 Series allows this transition to happen seamlessly.

We no longer want to just use our smartphones “at work” – we want to use them to “do work.”
