Konftel’s Director of Global Sales, Tommy Edlund, says the new partnership further strengthens the appeal of the Konftel 800 and addresses growing customer demand, as Zoom Phone continues to enjoy a rapid rise in popularity.
“There’s been a strong customer appetite for official certification, and users will now be able to appreciate in ever greater numbers, the synergy, ease of use, reliability and high performance offered by Zoom Phone and the Konftel 800,” Edlund said. “It’s a compelling combination.”
Zoom Phone now has more than two million seats across 47 countries and territories, doubling from 1 million to 2 million paid seats in less than nine months alone. The Konftel 800 is a flagship hybrid conference phone that, when paired with Zoom Phone, provides high quality audio communication across a multitude of room types.
Jeff Fox, Zoom senior product marketing manager, confirmed that user adoption continues to accelerate. “Surpassing two million licenses is a testament to the growing need for a rich cloud telephony solution like Zoom Phone,” Fox said. “Organizations around the world no longer have to settle for a phone solution; they can choose one that strategically scales with their business.
“Over the past two and a half years, we’ve focused on creating a phone solution that’s easy enough for small and midsize businesses to use and deploy and has all the advanced capabilities large multinational organizations require to support global users,” Fox added. “Certification of the Konftel 800 further adds to the appeal of our Zoom Phone service.”
