Sympany relies on a virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI) using IGEL OS. Their contact center employees access their softphone apps and functions by connecting to individual virtual desktops. This setup is highly secure and easy to administer centrally, but simple headset updating became a problem during the pandemic which required a device management tool that could resolve this in a frictionless manner.
Using EPOS Manager allows Sympany’s IT Department to standardize their update process. This way, all employee headsets always have the latest firmware, bringing enhanced stability, improved audio, and bug fixes.
Huge time savings
By managing 1000+ EPOS devices simultaneously, Sympany saves at least 250 work hours per firmware update, which is equivalent to about $11,000 USD* in time costs saved
The IT Department can easily manage all devices remotely from one central location. Firmware updates happen only when headsets are idle and can be scheduled for when they’re most convenient
Better configuration options
EPOS Manager allows Sympany to adjust headset reach on the fly, optimizing for how crowded the call center is at any given time based on input from call center agents
