Headset Investment insights for Skype for Business

Staff

Skype for Business (Skype) users can join calls and conferences from different devices. Some uses a built-in microphone and speaker on their laptop, while others uses a mobile phone headset on the go. These devices can cause poor user experience as the speech to noise ratio – the contrast between the sound of your voice and all other sounds around you – can be poor. Almost all issues relating to speech to noise ratio can be improved by using a Skype for Business Certified USB headset. Hence, many organizations made significant investments in headsets, in order to improve their users’ experience.

 

These organizations, however, may not have the visibility of the impact the headset investment has had to their Skype users’ experience. Prognosis can provide insights into an organization’s headset investments.
