“Customers and users need options when they’re determining which premium headset or USB audio device they need to get their work done – especially as we navigate new working environments like our kitchen tables,” said Christine Roberts, senior vice president and general manager enterprise headsets, Poly. “When it comes to premium options that seamlessly integrate with Microsoft Teams, no one else can give you as much choice and flexibility as Poly.”
With the significant increase in home working here to stay, our need to collaborate at a distance will remain essential. As such, Microsoft Teams usage continues to skyrocket, having gone from 32 million users in early March 2020 to 75 million users by April 2020, creating an even greater need for Teams integrated devices.
“As distance and remote working continues for many organizations, the need for a wide variety of Teams integrated devices will remain a top priority,” said Alaa Sayed, industry director at Frost and Sullivan. “No other vendor comes close to Poly’s deep portfolio of Teams certified devices for home, office, and everywhere in between. Poly’s ability to offer simple, flexible and reliable communications endpoints is just one of the reasons Poly continues to be the leading provider of global enterprise headsets.”
