Polycom opens new office in Turkey
Istanbul, December 4, 2011
Polycom, a global leader in standards-based unified communications (UC), has opened a new office in Istanbul, Turkey.
The new facility will help Polycom continue to innovate and deliver HD video and Polycom HD Voice collaboration solutions based on the Polycom RealPresence Platform, the most comprehensive software infrastructure for video collaboration, that are tailored for the Turkish market.
The announcement marks an important step for Polycom in providing key partners and distributors with the highest level of support, services and expertise on innovations such as Polycom RealPresence Mobile, which extends Polycom’s HD video collaboration technology beyond the office and conference room to deliver to tablets the same high-quality, secure, reliable video experience customers are accustomed to inside the office.
Turkish distributors and resellers of Polycom products will benefit from the knowledge of local UC and video collaboration experts who understand the needs and requirements of local customers.
“We see UC as the complete integration of multi-media communication channels across mobile devices, desktop tools, and room and immersive conferencing solutions of all types,” said Alain Wiedmer, the area sales vice president for emerging markets in EMEA, Polycom.
“The Polycom RealPresence Platform brings together disparate communication systems into one holistic and interoperable collaboration environment. Turkey is an important market for Polycom, and we believe that Polycom collaboration solutions are critical for the advancement of Turkish businesses and government entities,” he added.
The office, the latest in a number of strategic investments that Polycom is making across EMEA is evidence of its growing commitment to the region. In the third quarter of 2011, Polycom grew revenue 23 per cent year-over-year in EMEA, which includes markets such as Turkey and the Middle East. – TradeArabia News Service
