Plantronics + Polycom. Now together as Poly Logo

Communications and collaboration shouldn’t be hard; it should be easy and intuitive. It’s that philosophy that underscores our relationship with Microsoft. This commitment has positively impacted our companies as well as millions of Microsoft Lync users over the past several years.

With that commitment in mind, we introduced RealConnect™ for Microsoft® Lync®, a solution designed to unify video collaboration across Lync and non-Lync environments. Polycom RealConnect for Microsoft Lync simplifies the end-user video experience by bringing Lync and non-Lync users together while ensuring each side is using the platform they are most comfortable with.


Microsoft Lync has become one of the preferred means to communicate in the business world today. So RealConnect for Microsoft Lync allows both sides to connect seamlessly by:

  • Using a single workflow to make the experience consistent on both ends
  • Creating a more natural conference experience by allowing users to schedule meetings via Microsoft Outlook
  • Taking advantage of the flexibility of Microsoft Lync Server resulting in an interoperable and scalable solution, fostering greater use of video


When we have conversations with prospective customers, they call specific attention to the opportunities that enhanced video communication and collaboration can bring to their organization. However they want that experience to be easy for their users to understand and use.


That desire, coupled with limited budgets, is what we hear regularly. But if two companies with a history of unprecedented innovation and a passion to make businesses more productive thru simple and easy to use tools are focused on continuing to deliver products like RealConnect and Lync, what’s stopping you from exploring all that video communication and collaboration can offer your organization?

Also what is the financial impact this is having on the deployment of such an architecture?
