Dynamic work environments are made-up of people on the move and virtual teams across different time zones. This makes it challenging to access an expert or to secure information. You need a communication solution that anchors fast-moving teams and enables communication from any device, anywhere; and communication tools that integrate with applications you use daily that are managed through a single interface to streamline deployment and speed your return on investment (ROI). Polycom and Microsoft® deliver a complete and interoperable end-to-end unified communications (UC) solution for voice, video, conferencing and collaboration and connect people from any device, and from any location.
As powerful as Microsoft Lync is, buyers should understand it is not a complete UC solution, and use of strategic partners is necessary. Voice and video are the most difficult services to provision correctly as workers require a high-quality, real-time experience. Anything short of that can remove many of the ROI benefits the company was hoping to realize. As such, companies deploying Lync should choose the best possible voice and video partner for Lync to simplify deployments and optimize user experience. Read why Polycom is a top strategic partner for Microsoft Lync for mission-critical voice and video services.

What began 10 years ago as a hardware-driven effort to combine PBX systems, computer servers and video infrastructure, is now evolving to include software-enabled processes and functionality.
Lync Enterprise Voice and Lync video can improve worker productivity and streamline business processes, while lowering the overall total cost of communications. Read insights into the biggest benefits of Lync Enterprise Voice and video.
