Spectralink, a global leader in enterprise mobility solutions, has announced the launch of the next generation of devices in the Versity smartphone family, the Versity 97 Series, via local distributor, Wavelink. The new series, purpose-built for enterprises, is now available in Australia and New Zealand.

Notably, Versity 97 offers unique native safety features activated with the push of a button or automatically with motion sensors, ensuring the protection of deskless workers anywhere at their workplace.

Doug Werking, Chief Executive Officer of Spectralink, commented, “We are extremely proud of the latest addition to the Spectralink Versity family of enterprise smartphones. Versity 95 is our most successful smartphone to date, and while customers have indicated immense satisfaction with its performance, Spectralink prides itself on our ability to innovate, surpass the expectations of our customers, and set the standard for enterprise mobility.”

The Versity 97 Series, engineered for today's mobile workforce, supports uninterrupted communication and demanding applications in a truly rugged form factor. It is recommended by Google Android Enterprise and is readily operated with one hand without weighing down uniform pockets. Its total cost of ownership is 50 per cent lower when compared with consumer devices, despite its similarities

The device offers a range of features that maximise productivity on the move. It boasts an industry-leading processor to support demanding application use and multi-tasking, a large touchscreen for easy data input and viewing even with gloves on, integration capabilities with the leading call server platforms and Android applications. It heightens communication, collaboration, security, and safety with its AI-enhanced best-in-class call quality, optimal Wi-Fi performance, workstation docking for tracking intensive use cases, a BLE location beacon with Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) capabilities and a dedicated alarm button for a quick summon of help.

From the standpoint of lowering total cost ownership, its merits include a rugged and damage-resistant design, separately chargeable and hot swappable batteries and the AMIE platform for managing devices and batteries for optimal performance and valuable time-saving in troubleshooting or locating devices.

Through the capabilities truly unleashed by Versity 97, we empower our mobile enterprise customers to get the job done wherever they work.”
