Clampdown on drivers using mobile phones prompts demand for headsets

Distributor Nimans has witnessed a 15% spike in demand for Bluetooth enabled devices since tougher mobile phones laws while driving came into force in March, hitting offenders with six penalty points and a £200 fine.

Headset Business Manager, Jason Welsh, said: "Many of today's Bluetooth headsets offer much more than just standard voice functionality as they are an inherent part of the overall UC mix.

"For example, they can provide presence capabilities via Skype for Business thanks to inbuilt sensors. So a colleague in the office knows instantly if the wearer is available to take a call. It's about being safe and working productively and intuitively."
