Jabra, global provider of wireless sound and hybrid-work solutions, announced Jabra+ for Admins, a cloud-based API-first software platform for remote monitoring and management of meeting rooms and devices.
Per a statement, Jabra+ for Admins offers a seamless experience from start to finish, allowing users to manage their communication devices with ease. As a result, it helps save time on administration and troubleshooting. IT administrators will have visibility and control over settings, firmware and insights from one unified software platform. Moreover, they can check in for real-time status updates from anywhere, says Jabra.
According to the company, Jabra+ for Admins will pave the way for future experiences for IT administrators, end users and partners. The platform will start with meeting room and video device management that customers can sign up for now via an Early Adopter Program. There will be wider availability later this summer, Jabra adds.
Next-Generation Meeting-Room and Video-Device Management
With Jabra+ for Admins, users can effortlessly monitor and manage all Jabra meeting room solutions with a clear visual overview of rooms, locations and devices. The modern user-interface (UI), new design, and enhanced intuitiveness make device management more accessible. All in all, it offers a comprehensive solution for IT administrators, the company states.
The platform also allows users to manage all devices in a room collectively; thus optimizing the in-room experience by remotely configuring devices and updating firmware. The real-time online/offline status tracking of rooms and devices helps to identify immediate issues. This then reduces IT tickets and ensures a seamless meeting experience, the company reveals.
Jabra+ for Admins: A Unified and Secure Cloud Platform
As a unified software platform, Jabra+ for Admins can integrate with IT help desk systems and third-party tools to create an ecosystem for device management. Whether updating devices, customizing headsets, or integrating with Jabra devices, users engage with a single system.
Per a statement, Jabra+ for Admins also leverages the security and scalability of Microsoft Azure. As a result, it provides a platform with Single Sign-On (SSO). SSO enhances security by reducing attack surfaces and streamlining user authentication, resulting in a better user experience and alleviating IT burdens associated with password recovery.
Holger Reisinger, SVP of enterprise solutions at Jabra, says, “In the hybrid workplace where managing meeting rooms and multiple devices is increasingly complex, we understand the importance of simplicity and efficiency. This is why we created Jabra+ for Admins; a streamlined, secure platform that is easy to use. Users can now be more productive and spend more time on what makes their business thrive.”
