Having 20 years of experience in VoIP and global sales management in EMEA Central spanning Russia, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Benelux, Austria and Switzerland, Reisinger promotes remote working as an essential tool for today’s globalized businesses, while optimizing employee performance through real-time video-conferencing and collaboration.
“We deliver the devices to make the new way to work an everyday reality for professionals,” said Holger Reisinger, Jabra’s senior vice president of marketing, products and alliances. “BYOD, or myIT policies, and the consumerization of technology are trends that empower self-determined careers that concurrently improve relationships amongst customers, clients and the overall productivity of a company.”

Today, Jabra is a leader in the development, manufacturing, and marketing of a broad range of communications and audio solutions that enable the human voice and hearing.

Jabra integrates with Unify’s OpenScape suite of products to design virtual work adoption for businesses and enterprises in order to be more proactive through smarter knowledge sharing and collaboration. Jabra’s hardware, which comprises headsets, portable speakers, and wireless technologies, leverages Unify’s software to create, listen and manage access to intelligence.
“Together, Jabra and Unify have come to define their partnership as moving beyond communication,” said Bill Hurley, CMO of Unify. “It’s about managing knowledge. Jabra’s superior voice clarity combined with Unify’s intuitive collaboration tools makes real-time collaboration across voice and video conferences as effective as being in the same room.”
