Still looking for the perfect gift? We’ve got you covered!
For any of the Star Wars fans in your office, you should strongly consider this “toy” the First Order’s new menace from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, BB-9E. This Sphero app-enabled droid is controlled with your smart device and rolls just like on the big screen. This helps you explore holographic environments like the First Order’s Supremacy Mega Star Destroyer and really immerse yourself in the Star Wars galaxy.
2. Amazon Echo (2nd Generation)
Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, ask questions, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more—instantly. The second generation of this fan-favorite device is available in a variety of designs and features an enhanced speaker with Dolby processing for improved immersive sound and seven microphones and beam forming technology to ensure it can hear you from across the room—even while music is playing. To use Echo, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Echo responds instantly.
3. Samsung Gear VR Headset
This is the perfect gift for anyone looking to go on an adventure. With this Samsung Gear virtual reality (VR) headset and controller, you can literally have the world at your finger tips. A wide field of vision and 360-degree immersion creates realistic interaction, and with an exclusive library of more than 500 titles you are to always be entertained. This Samsung Gear virtual reality headset and controller is paired with your Samsung smartphone or tablet to create an unforgettable and exciting VR experience.
4. Google Wifi
Google Wifi replaces your router and works with your modem and ISP, so you can stream, download and share without missing a beat. Using advanced technology, Google Wifi allows you to set up multiple points throughout your home, creating a “mesh” network that delivers a more consistently strong, secure signal than a traditional modem. The experience is considered reliable, flexible and can more than handle all your devices and online activities effortlessly. (This is a great gift for any employees that work from home!)
5. Voice Analytics
If you’re more into work place-centered gifts, it’s never a bad idea to give your IT team access to more data! Providing your team with increased visibility to valuable call metrics and statistics creates a more informed and effective team. Momentum’s Voice Analytics tool allows you to gain new insight that helps build a healthier team and saves time and resources. This gift could quite possibly make you one of the IT team’s favorite people.
6. Polaroid Cube+
For the photographers on your team, the Polaroid Cube+ lifestyle action camera is weatherproof, shockproof, mountable and built to handle everything you can imagine. Packed with fun including 1440p HD video, 8MP CMOS sensor, 124° wide angle lens, and built in battery that records up to 90 minutes. This camera makes capturing and sharing life’s adventures easier and twice the fun, with everything you need like built-in Wifi, apps for editing, printing and live streaming, full HD recording, image stabilization, and photography.
7. Finding a Reliable Technology Partner
The ultimate gift for your IT team this year, though, is to make their job easier next year. Your IT team works hard to make sure your enterprise is running at peak efficiency and they need partners whose goal is to help your business thrive. If you really want to empower your IT team, make sure when you’re considering a unified communications solution that you partner with an experienced technology company that will be there from day 1 to day 1,000.
