Actor Rob Lowe Selects the Panasonic Business Phone System
By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor
The Lowe family selected this assortment as they wanted a way to easily communicate from room to room within the house as well as on the grounds surrounding the home, including the pool area.
"We've had really good luck with Panasonic in the past, and we know the company has incredible systems for business and home," Lowe said in a statement. He noted that the ease-of-use, mobility and the means to "have as many extensions as you need" were key factors in his decision to go with Panasonic.
"The system and the phones are really easy to use and set up," Lowe added. "There was no learning curve or heavy training involved to get started. The system is reliable and we've had no down time-you just pick up the phone and you're good to go."
Lowe went on to note that Panasonic phones go well with the décor of his home. To achieve desired mobility, the family uses the new DECT (News - Alert) 6.0 cordless handsets, which provide the freedom necessary to go from room to room and even out on the grounds. Lowe likes the fact that he doesn't have to worry about dropped calls and enjoys the security, as well as the sound and range that he calls, "incredible."
Lowe first rose to fame in the 1980s after he appeared in such movies as The Outsiders and St. Elmo's Fire. He and his family support a number of causes, including the Best Buddies, a non-profit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer employment and leadership development for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Lowe family also supports the Dream Foundation.
"As a market leader, Panasonic is committed to delivering innovative features and superior performance, qualities that led to Rob Lowe's decision to choose our products for his home," said Bill Taylor (News - Alert), President of Panasonic System Networks Company of America.
"Mr. Lowe is also quite concerned about environmental issues and Panasonic is serious about its commitment to environmental responsibility, another issue that was appealing to him. Our new DECT line uses 100 percent recycled packaging materials, and our new models are Energy Star compliant, which means they use about 1/3 less energy than non-qualified models."
