During my IT career, I remember noticing that Plantronics and Polycom made almost every headset in a call center or speaker in a meeting room. Here in 2020, Plantronics and Polycom are now Poly, the global communications company that powers authentic human connection and collaboration.
Poly offers a vast set of smart endpoints for unified collaboration span personal and group communication systems, with a full range of headsets, desk and conference phones, and video collaboration solutions. But they also provide cloud software and services, advanced management, analytics, and insights that drive first-rate business decisions.
Face to face, we sift and sort millions of verbal and non-verbal cues to glean meaning. I wanted to learn more about how Poly is finding new ways to inject these cues into audio and video communication to replicate the face-to-face experience. To build intimacy. To break walls and span the distance. To nurture the simplicity and beauty of human connection. One to one, one to many, many to many.
Paul Clark, Senior VP and EMEA MD for multi-billion communications brand Poly joins me on Tech Talks Daily. Paul is responsible for everything from market strategy to brand development in EMEA and has played a vital role in guiding the company through the uncertainty of both Brexit and COVID-19.
We discuss how the workplace is being shaped by the unique challenges of the past year. I learn how office and homeworking technologies are evolving to meet these challenges. For example, meeting spaces will be equipped with touchless solutions for safer collaboration. We also explore how the relationship between employers and employees changes as a result and ultimately gives employees more freedom to work in ways that suit them best.
