Smart Phone’s Plug-N-Play Technology Wins “Best of CES Innovations 2012” Nod

(International CES, Las Vegas, Nevada – January 9, 2012)

The Smart Office Phone has been named one of the “Best of CES Innovations 2012” and is described by it’s inventors as the first “plug and play professional phone.”

Small office and home office managers (SOHO’s) will likely be interested in the Smart Office Phone from Invoxia, a French high-tech business founded by Eric Carreel, Serge Renouard and Jackques Lewiner in 2010 and specializing in telecommunication devices.

No need to contact a phone company. No need for major planning or price quotes with business growth projections in mind. The system is flexible, easy to use and can grow with you.

These devices with superior sound quality and easy plug-in installation, including IP telephone technology, will soon be sold at an office supply store near you.

Invoxia handles the VoIP service billing and bystreamlining the sales and distribution process is able to pass savings along to the customer. We haven’t seen the rate card yet, but it just might be promising for businesses looking for cost savings and mobility.

The phones use iOS devices as an interface for communications and the 8-broad-spectrum speakers and up to 8 digital microphones in “conference” mode makes group calls easier, more accessible and improves sound quality. The calls can be answered on either a mobile device or on the landline.

And forget complicated instructions for features you’ll ever use. The Smart Phone is simple. Keys for incoming calls, volume adjustment, mute and voicemail do pretty much everything you’ll need.

The Smart Office Phone system is available from for $599 (excluding tax) and is compatible with the iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2 and iPad. Seems like a slightly steep price, but it may be worth it if it makes your business communications sound as professional as the big guys.
