For the fourth quarter of 2014, Infonetics reported that Spectralink's market share in terms of revenue share grew 13.6 percentage points year-over-year and is up nearly 8 percentage points quarter-over-quarter for a total revenue share of 34.5 percent.

Spectralink recently announced the newest addition to the WorkSmart family of solutions for enterprise mobile communication, the PIVOT:S. Part of the 87-Series voice over Wi-Fi family of devices, the PIVOT:S features a streamlined, slimmer design that gives customers the choice of two ergonomically designed form factors and three devices in the PIVOT family.

Designed to bridge the gap between consumer smartphones and purpose-built mobile solutions, the PIVOT 87-Series gives users the agility to quickly respond -- or pivot -- at a moment's notice. Spectralink's portfolio of Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) handsets is designed to deliver a more flexible model of enterprise-grade, on-site voice mobility with a familiar, smartphone-like user interface on an extensible application platform. The entire portfolio of PIVOT devices is superior in ease-of-use and ergonomic design. In addition, the PIVOT family of solutions offers security capabilities, patented VQO (voice quality optimization) technology, seamless VoWi-Fi roaming, durability, broad telephony support and wireless local area network (WLAN) interoperability, and predictable return on investment (ROI).

Available in July 2015, the PIVOT:S will support specialized, workplace-specific applications through Spectralink AIMS partners (Application, Integration and Management Solutions). This enables users to customize their devices to their unique workflow requirements and opens new opportunities for end-user efficiency solutions.
