Polycom VVX-310 Phone for Small Businesses – Review

polycom-wx-301The Polycom VVX-310 surpasses the earlier models in so much as it produces not just HD sound and an intuitive user interface that provide unified communications that makes operating the phone easy and intuitive.

The opportunity of the VVX-310 is that it gives your users the best possible work experience as a result of the 6-lines embedded into the phone.

Users can integrate and view their Microsoft Outlook and they can also access the company contact directory.

 

Conclusion

This is a tremendous mid-level phone it is priced attractively and comes equipped with features and functions that no competitor can match.  The only problem is its build quality, which despite its capabilities lets it down somewhat.
