A new DECT telephone from Gigaset and stocked by Nimans is said to be the latest weapon in the battle against nuisance calling.
The Gigaset C620A incorporates a dedicated nuisance call blocking key and Nimans says the handset represents a 'powerful addition' to a reseller's sales armoury, opening up sales opportunities in workplace and home office environments.
Over 1.5 billion nuisance calls are made to the British public every year, with over 70% of phone owners indicating they have been targeted by a scam during the last twelve months.
The C620A has a 26 hour talk time and 530 hours in standby. It benefits from a 55 minute built-in answer machine and is available in single, twin, triple and handset only variants.
Nimans' Purchasing Director, Andy Winfield, says the device is another significant step forward in the battle to overcome nuisance calling - combining a 15 number 'blacklist' with a 1.8" colour display and 250 name phonebook capacity.
"Until recently call blocking was not an inbuilt function of DECT telephones but this latest development from Gigaset provides resellers with a new weapon to clinch more business," he said.
