Polycom Strategic Alliances are the keystones of the Polycom Partner Network. Our strategic alliance partners are global leaders in unified communications (UC) who work closely with Polycom to deliver standards-based, integrated solutions to our mutual customers.
With these partners, we deliver the ultimate UC experience and the industry's premier collaboration solutions. Customers rely on these solutions to leverage their existing communication environments, protect their long-term investments, boost productivity, and improve collaboration across the enterprise.
These select strategic alliances are committed to open, standards based solutions. The solutions leverage the power of the Polycom RealPresence portfolio to deliver universal video collaboration and a more dynamic customer experience. Our joint solutions better meet the demands of customers who seek scalable, secure, and highly productive collaboration environments that offer the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO).
Our strategic alliance partners include:
Polycom and Microsoft provide customers with a complete and interoperable end-to-end solution optimized for Microsoft environments, including Microsoft® Lync®. These unique, combined solutions ensure seamless communications across IM, presence, voice, video and infrastructure. They span desktops, conference rooms, and mobile environments as well.
IBM and Polycom have teamed to help you deliver higher productivity with a simple, but powerful communications experience. IBM’s Social Business applications, integrated with the Polycom RealPresence Platform, connect people and bring them face-to-face from any device regardless of location.
Together, GENBAND and Polycom are enabling organizations to use unified communications to be more collaborative, more engaged and more productive. Our teams focus on delivering rich integration that simplifies implementation and assures compelling capabilities. Zero touch provisioning and video call integration are just two examples. Most importantly, tight integration doesn’t come at the expense of open standards, customers always have the option to use their phone investments with other application servers or choose additional, standards-based, endpoints.
