Who is Hello Direct?
Hello Direct has been the leading developer and direct marketer of desktop telephony products since 1987. We have grown from a small handful of visionaries to a well recognized business-to-business leader in telecommunications solutions. In November, 2000, Hello Direct merged with and became a cooperating unit of GN Netcom (a world leader in hands-free communication technologies), a unit of GN Great Nordic Ltd., a public company traded on the Copenhagen and London Stock Exchanges.

We listen to you.
Today Hello Direct and its web site, HelloDirect.com—the leading online resource for telecom products, information, and service—focus on the needs of small businesses and telephone-intensive individuals. We develop our entire product offering in direct response to what our customers ask for. We are customer driven.

We are innovators.
In 1991 we were first to market with a wireless telephone headset. This headset enabled you to multi-task while talking on the phone, and simultaneously walk up to 150 feet from your desk. It was a boon to small businesses where both time and freedom were in short supply. Today we offer a number of hands-free and cordless headsets and belt packs delivering even more flexibility, including the award-winning GN Netcom 9120 2.4 GHz Cordless Headset and the GN Netcom Ellipse 2.4 GHz Cordless Belt Pack, among others.

We offer superior solutions.
Currently Hello Direct provides more than 800 high-quality, business-oriented telephony solutions including Hello Direct and GN Netcom-brand products as well as those from leading manufacturers such as Polycom, AT&T, Nortel, Panasonic, Siemens, Motorola, and many others. We rigorously evaluate our products for quality, reliability, comfort, ease of use, and ease of installation. We then screen the products, and test, test, test.

Our web business alone is growing by more than 100% year to year. In cooperation with carefully chosen partners, HelloDirect.com also provides a host of online services to help keep your business competitive. If you have any questions about Hello Direct or the solutions we provide—or those you'd like us to—please contact us at xpressit@hellodirect.com. Or call our toll-free number, 1-800-435-5634 (1-800-HELLO34).

Well, Hello Direct products generally don't require much "support," for we design them to be easy to set up and use. But if you do need help, it's available. We educate our sales and support reps extensively, so they're equipped to recommend the best solutions for your unique situation, every time.

After the sale, our technical support staff (1-800-964-6444) can help you with additional installation, system add-ons, and so on.

You're also protected on most products, by a 30-day money-back guarantee (contact us within 30 days of your invoice date for a complete credit, exchange, or refund), and a 2-year product warranty (on most Hello Direct and GN Netcom-brand products).
