The newly relaunched Plantronics + Polycom excels VideoCentric to UK Gold Partner Status for 2019

Poly, the new UC giant of Plantronics & Polycom combined, has awarded VideoCentric, leading UK Video Conferencing and Collaboration integrator, with Gold Partner status.

As the first Gold Partner to be announced under the new company, the certification recognises VideoCentric’s expertise in visual communications and audio/visual integration, alongside rewarding the significant successes in video communication solution delivery and VideoCentric’s commitment to the new Poly strategy.

VideoCentric’s 20 years’ expertise in delivering integrated and bespoke Video Communications and UC solutions provides Poly with a strong strategic video integration partner to deliver their innovative solutions and growth strategy in 2019 and beyond. Gold certified partners demonstrate their extensive knowledge in Poly’s collaborative solutions through rigorous training & testing, and have the tools, skills & environments in place to deliver a whole host of services, solutions and support required to help organisations address today’s business collaboration goals.

David Shimell, Managing Director of VideoCentric commented, “VideoCentric helps to address the complex communication needs of customers who are looking for professional integration with their UC environments, particularly with Microsoft Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams, but also with the wider collaboration ecosystem that Poly now interoperates with, including Zoom, Pexip, Webex and BlueJeans. By understanding our customers’ changing work-flow requirements and demonstrating the total solution to them ahead of purchase, VideoCentric is assisting its customers to meet their goals for Communication and Collaboration over distance in a way that doesn’t lock them into a silo. The merger of Polycom and Plantronics as Poly means that we have a wider range of video and audio excellence to offer our customers, including headsets, echo-cancelling speakerphones, IP voice and video phones and interoperability licences than ever before.”

VideoCentric has been a Polycom partner for over a decade, and is fully accredited across RealPresence Video and Voice solutions, RealConnect for Microsoft, and Poly RealPresence Infrastructure. Its new Gold partner status, combined with a wealth of expertise in the integration of communication solutions with the rest of the industry, places VideoCentric in a strong market-leading and competitive position for the advantage of businesses and public sector organisations across the UK and globally, having also established partnerships for global deployments.
