Why buy Certified Devices from Authorized Resellers

It can be highly convenient and budget-friendly to shop online; however, buyers beware. Many unscrupulous, unauthorized vendors selling audio and video devices online come with several risks attached.  

Potential Risks Buying from Unauthorized Resellers 

  • The product is of unknown origin, previously used, or counterfeit 
  • Unauthorized resellers often deal in grey-market goods- those designed for one region or market, but exported to another without the manufacturers’ approval. Since they are designed for other regions, they may have product information in foreign languages and different power accessories. 
  • The product may be resold as “unused” – which is not a new product 
  • Used or open-box product is often misrepresented and sold as new, shipped in bulk packaging, and may have missing documentation or accessories. Used goods are often found at Internet auctions or marketplaces like eBay and Amazon, and may be for sale at vastly lower prices. 
  • The product includes software that is no longer supported by the manufacturer & requires updates to prevent network vulnerability 
  • The product is missing key accessories or components required for your region to ensure the product will work as needed 
  • If the product does not work properly, you will not be able to obtain support or a replacement under warranty 
  • The product is not eligible to be supported by manufacturer services. 
  • The product is not eligible for any manufacturer trade-in promotional programs.

Why Buy Certified Devices 

The global pandemic created a massive shift to work from home and the utilization of cloud-based collaboration platforms like Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, and others. After almost two years working remotely and in hybrid environments, many have learned there is a difference in user experience and performance quality when using a certified vs. a non-certified device. The reason is certified devices are developed and designed with a set of requirements set forth by the UC platforms. The peripherals certification program ensures USB peripherals (such as headsets, speakerphones, webcams, and monitors) offer rich audio or video quality. Certified devices work (plug & play) with no extra configuration required and offer call control. The products provide an excellent experience for end-users and administrators. 

Not all certifications are platform-specific. General UC certifications are issued to products that fulfill the basic requirements for professional use, such as multi-device connectivity, enhanced call quality, and remote call control.  

Additional Support 

You also get added product support from the UC partner and the peripheral or end-point provider when you have a certified device. This line of support between the peripheral manufacturer and the UC partner allows them to work together to solve any issues that may arise with a product or platform.  

Latest Feature Updates 

UC platforms are continuously providing system updates. When UC platforms provide updates, you can update all devices immediately, no matter where they are. In a hybrid world where teams are distributed between different locations, what would otherwise be a major IT challenge becomes a simple system update. An added benefit for IT teams is the remote device management capabilities of certified devices. Leading manufacturers offer device management software to support individuals with desktop applications as well as large global enterprises.

Conclusion 

If the voice of your brand matters, it is essential to select certified audio and video devices. Certified devices will ensure your team members can hear, be heard, and be seen. To avoid the multiple potential risks, elect to purchase through an authorized reseller that supports your geographic territory. Leading brands like Jabra, Poly, and EPOS provide an online partner locator. Call One, Inc. is an Authorized Reseller that supports customers in the United States. How can we help?
