Westcon’s Complete ‘Ready-to-Run’ Polycom Microsoft Skype Room System
Enables partners to bring Skype for Business to any meeting space, easily
Westcon-Comstor, the leading value-added global distributor of security, unified communications, network infrastructure and data centre solutions, announces that its Westcon business has launched a new, and unique, Polycom Microsoft Skype Room (MSR) system offer.
Westcon’s close relationship with both Microsoft and Polycom enables it to build pre-configured, ‘ready-to-run’, Polycom MSR solutions. Five unique packages provide everything needed to extend Skype for Business capability directly into any sized meeting space, from the huddle room to large conference rooms. Westcon’s services team pre-stage and package the essential Microsoft Surface Pro with a Polycom MSR Dock, and relevant Polycom audio and video products. Such a simplified, easy-to-order and easy-to-deploy solution ensures reseller partners can profit from the growth in video conferencing by immediately enhancing their customers Skype for Business capabilities.
Rob Glaysher, Westcon Polycom Vendor Manager, noted:
“Our key relationships with Polycom and Microsoft mean we can deliver a truly differentiated, flexible and simplified MSR solution. Polycom’s superb audio and video quality coupled with seamless connectivity, Skype for Business’ simplicity and Office 365 integration simply adds up to more productive meetings and flexible collaboration.”
“Westcon’s services and product value-add enables partners to get on with the business of improving their customers’ Skype for Business experience without the burden of unnecessary configuration, logistics or supply costs.”
Paul Harris, Head of Channels Polycom UK, added:
“I am really excited that Westcon can now offer a single route to market for the Polycom MSR solution. Quoting, configuring, and deploying Polycom’s MSR series is now simple, fast and far more efficient.”
“This enhancement to Westcon’s offering enables them to provide partners and their customers the full range of Polycom voice and video endpoints for Microsoft customers, which is a key focus and rapidly growing market for Polycom.”
