Panasonic’s KX-NS700 Honored for Exceptional Innovation

MISSISSAUGA, ON (November 13, 2015) – Panasonic, a leading provider of business telephone systems, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company helping clients build communities in print, in person and online, has named the KX-NS700 as a 2015 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award winner.

The KX-NS700 is the latest addition to Panasonic’s business telephone communications platform that is optimized for the growing SMB market. Its advanced features, like high-definition voice quality and seamless integration with desktop applications such as Microsoft Outlook, and simplified maintenance makes it an ideal communications solution for small to medium sized businesses offering the scalability to support up to 288 extensions with optional expansion units. Panasonic’s next-generation Compact Hybrid Communication Server supports legacy digital infrastructures and provides a seamless migration path for businesses transitioning to IP—providing a highly flexible and cost-effective solution capable of scaling to meet the changing needs of today’s increasingly mobile and evolving business environment.

“We are thrilled our new Smart Hybrid Communication System was chosen as the 2015 Unified Communications Product of the Year,” said Kaji Masilamany, Marketing Manager for Business Communication Solutions at Panasonic Canada Inc. “We’re proud of our market-leading business telephone systems, and are honored to be recognized for our new communications platform and dedication to our SMB customers.”

Key features of the KX-NS700 include:

  • One-numbered Extension: Up to two extensions can be assigned the same extension number allowing calls to an office extension to be received simultaneously on a mobile phone for enhanced mobility.
  • Enhanced Voicemail: Expanded voicemail system is capable of recording up to 24 channels simultaneously and storing up to 400 hours of data, as well as notifying users of new voice messages via email.
  • Call Center Solution: Advanced call routing function provides all center functions without requiring an additional CTI server, improving overall efficiency and customer service capabilities for businesses with limited resources.
  • Auto Recording and Back-up: Voicemail system can be used to automatically record customer conversations and save recorded voice data to USB memory or an external server via the internet to improve the customer experience and provide insights into customer service problems and opportunities.
  • Web-based Maintenance: Leveraging its built-in web server, functions such as PBX and voicemail are programmable from HQ or remote sites via a web based console. Users can also utilize the web-based console to configure terminals.

“It gives me great pleasure to honor Panasonic as a 2015 recipient of TMC’s Unified Communications Product of the Year Award for their innovative product, the KX-NS700,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.

“Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by Panasonic in their groundbreaking work on the KX-NS700.”
