NEC is a manufacturer of office phones which give businesses to easily set up and maintain a set of extensions through one master system. One of the benefits of this system is the information which appears on the phone displays. The time and date is always just a glance away for employees who have these phones at their desk. This information, however, does no one any good if it is incorrect. Changing the time on an NEC phone is a quick process which will make your employee's lives easier.
