300 offices across northern Germany
“A cooperative, creative atmosphere is a necessary prerequisite for efficient conference calls. Konftel conference phones provide the foundation with their outstanding sound quality and excellent ease of use.”

Cooperative and creative meetings
A positive atmosphere is created if the participants can easily understand one another and talk freely. “Using a Konftel, employees can, for example, get up and talk from the whiteboard. Every word remains clear and understandable”, reported Eickelpasch. The outstanding acoustic performance of the phones in the Konftel 300 series provides the necessary basis: OmniSound® sound technology guarantees natural audio and voice quality throughout the conference room.
Finally AGRAVIS considered the ease of use of the Konftel devices to be superior to other solutions. The devices work just like desk phones and anyone can easily set up conferences. “The ease of use helps to lower the inhibitions to initiate conference calls”, reported Eickelpasch. “We are now handling a lot of business using short, spontaneous conference calls. Previously a lot of travelling, complicated e-mail exchanges or long sequences of telephone calls were involved.”
At AGRAVIS, more and more meetings that previously required business travel are now handled using the Konftel phones. “This saves us substantial time and money, helping the phones to pay for themselves very quickly”, said Eickelpasch. AGRAVIS is interested in purchasing additional phones. “We are considering more Konftel 300IP phones as well as the new Konftel 55W which can connect to our Siemens Open Stage 60 phones via Bluetooth”, added Eickelpasch.
The installation process needed to flow smoothly at sites distributed across all of northern Germany. “As an agricultural trade and service company, AGRAVIS has an established local presence”, said Kai Eickelpasch. “The phones were delivered to our main office in Münster, forwarded to the branch offices and configured centrally via a web browser. No field service was required.”
