Video collaboration is no longer just a fancy term, but has become a critical driver of productivity in the global marketplace. As new generations enter the workforce, expectations around being able to connect instantly, from any device or workspace are rising. The combination of Plantronics and Polycom is well positioned to capitalise on this opportunity as the combined company delivers excellent collaboration experiences for every environment, workspace, and worker.

Over the next few months, our focus will be on bringing collaboration solutions to more Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in India so more people can benefit from seamless, unified communications. We will work closely with customers across sectors to provide the best collaboration solutions to deliver the right foundation for their digital initiatives. I look forward to building on our momentum and developing even stronger ties with our customers and wide ecosystem of partners.”
