Plantronics’ acquisition of Polycom was perfected and confirmed: it’s the union of two leading companies in the field of technology, thus creating a new company that is even bigger and full of possibilities.
Unified Communications is a rapidly growing sector. So the acquisition of Polycom by Plantronics for two billion dollars has just been concluded with the intention of creating a single company that goes beyond the best offer of audio and video technology. Plantronics thus becomes the company of communication experiences, being able to offer one of the most complete communication and collaboration portfolios on the market, ranging from headphones to software, from fixed telephones to audio and video conferencing tools, from analytics to services in general. A single company, focused on building innovative communication and collaboration experiences both at work, at home or on the move.
“It’s a great opportunity for Polycom to join an industry leader like Plantronics”, said Marco Landi, Polycom’s Senior Vice President, EMEA and APAC. “Customers are increasingly looking for simple and high quality communication and collaboration experiences: our joint portfolio offers complementary solutions that can serve all types of companies, regardless of their size and the sector in which they operate. Plantronics and Polycom will work better together, and will be a single, great collaboration company.”
