Videoconferencing software and UC equipment provider Poly, born from Plantronics and Polycom, has spent the past couple of years working through its loyal channel partner base to help customers tackle hybrid work with its suite of collaboration hardware and software offerings.
Poly believes that if the hybrid working trend has taught the industry anything, it’s that a multiplatform approach to communications and collaboration is the only way to go. To that end, Poly RealConnect is a cloud-based interoperability service that lets users connect from traditional videoconferencing systems to Microsoft Teams and Zoom video meetings while gaining high-quality audio and video, as well as PC screen share capabilities. Users can choose between cloud or on-premises hosting, and the offering lets users join meetings seamlessly while keeping the workflow they’re used to, the San Jose, Calif.-based company said.
In March, HP revealed it would acquire Poly for $3.3 billion to boost its own hybrid working chops.
