Xelion announces interoperability with Voiceflex
Xelion UK has announced full interoperability with Voiceflex SIP trunks. The Xelion platform is vendor- agnostic which means customers can connect
any network, manufacturer, CRM, SIP provider and third-party apps to
the platform. This approach enables Xelion partners to build solutions with best of breed apps that meet specific customer requirements, instead of a ‘one-size-fits-all’ service.
The Xelion hosted telephony service has an open platform architecture, which puts the reseller back in control, allowing them to build their own comprehensive comms proposition for customers. Reseller partners can connect any hardware from any vendor and route calls via any SIP provider to create their own unique solution for their customers.
Managing Director Dave Reynolds said: “We are delighted to now offer assured interoperability with the Voiceflex SIP network. As a market leader in telephony network services, Voiceflex is at the forefront of SIP trunks provision, ahead of the withdrawal of ISDN in 2025. Our partners now have full assurance that Xelion and Voiceflex are a perfect fit!” www.xelion.com/en _______________________________________________________________________________________________________
Customer support for a next generation of printers
The new HP xRServices powered by Microsoft HoloLens has been hailed by HP Inc. as the latest innovation for the next generation of printers.
The collaboration will see HP xRServices and Microsoft HoloLens 2 create a virtual real world combination in which customers can connect with HP engineers in a split second through mixed reality, advising them on any issue, at any point of their print production. Wearing the Microsoft HoloLens 2 headset and supported by HP xRServices solution, users will get the feeling of being physically present with a virtual coach on hand to guide them through the process, meaning no time wasted on long service calls, resolutions are swift and press downtime is kept minimal.
Compatible with all HP industrial printers, users whether digital native or novice, will be able to be trained and adapt quickly to doing tasks, guided step-by-step with their virtual HP engineer, the instructions moving with the employees to easily direct them to the parts or problems they need to solve in a second. And, by leveraging HP’s Print OSx, managers will clearly see how to combine the data generated from doing the work, with transactional data to drive optimisation and smoother productivity for future. www.hp.com
