Plantronics, Inc. has unveiled a new series of Poly Room Solutions for Microsoft Teams Rooms – Poly G10-T, G40-T and G80-T. These solutions include audio and video tools that deliver superior meeting experiences for users on Microsoft Teams, and the variety of different configurations grants IT managers the ability to easily scale for meeting rooms of all sizes.
Teams usage continues to skyrocket with more than 75 million daily active users, further deepening the need for consistent cloud collaboration experiences across devices. With the rapidly changing work environments expanding into the home and across differing room setups, users, IT managers and administrators need flexible, hybrid devices. Poly Room Solution for Teams Rooms provides customizable room tools that enable seamless virtual collaboration experiences with little to no-touch control. They join the previously announced Poly Studio X family that will also offer native Teams video experiences.
“The workforce is currently in transition. While a portion will continue working from home several days a week, we will also start seeing more people slowly returning to the office. The office remains core to getting work done, especially to collaborate, and businesses will need to ensure that they have the technology in place to support those on site to ensure optimal productivity,” said Andy Hurt, Managing Director, ANZ, Poly.
“We firmly believe that simplicity is key to adoption, utilisation and speedy ROI for businesses. Scalable and easy to install for rooms of any size, Poly Room Solutions for Microsoft Teams Rooms creates a natural meeting environment with the highest audio and video quality, connecting all participants regardless of location in a way that makes them forget about where they’re at, and to focus on the discussion.”
