Nimans is urging resellers to get ‘connected’ with a new portable conferencing innovation from Polycom – designed for a new generation of flexible UC-based communication.
The SoundStation Connect plugs directly into any laptop or desktop USB port, enabling users of softphone apps to experience HD-quality audio conferencing technology for small group meetings in the office, at home or moving around.
“Unified Communications applications are proliferating rapidly but the performance of built-in computer microphones are speakers are inadequate for groups,” said Nimans’ Head of Conferencing Sales, Ian Brindle.
“The SoundStation Connect lets customers take Polycom’s renowned audio conferencing experience anywhere they want to as part of an elegant, easy to use package that delivers superior acoustic performance.
“SoundStation Connect is for groups of people in small to midsize rooms such as salespeople and customers in a huddle room, patients and doctors in an office, or creative designers and ad experts in a brainstorm area. Polycom’s HD audio technology allows all participants to hear and be heard, making calls more productive.” Ian pointed out: “It has the capacity to turn a computer into a powerful group audio conferencing solution and is destined to become another impressive tool in a reseller’s sales armoury.”
He concluded: “This is a very flexible conference phone which connects to a PC or MAC and can be used not only with Microsoft Lync but also any other soft client running on a computer – IBM, Sametime, Skype or GoogleTalk, and Factime etc. It is also operating system independent and runs on any Mac, Windows or Linux machine.”
