Polycom’s announcements build on its industry leadership in video collaboration innovation.  Forrester Research, Inc., recently named Polycom a leader in room-based video conferencing and a top-ranked company in both “current offerings” and “strategy” in its August 2012 report, “The Forrester Wave™: Room-Based Videoconferencing, Q3 2012.” In the report, Polycom received the highest scores possible in the categories of quality of experience, interoperability, product road map, partners, and security and compliance.

Organizations across industries are video-enabling their workforce, including supplying personal video-conferencing systems to employees. Gartner estimates that there will be more than 200 million employees using enterprise-supplied personal video-conferencing systems worldwide by 2016, up from just 33 million in 2012.*

"Video collaboration solutions that allow for face-to-face interaction and content-sharing are important tools for helping businesses stay competitive and on the cutting edge, no matter their size. The challenge for mid-sized companies, in particular, is that although they want and need to implement the best technology, they are often hindered by limited budgets and IT resources,” said Ira M. Weinstein, senior analyst and partner, Wainhouse Research.  “Polycom has created a portfolio of video collaboration solutions that effectively hit the sweet spot for mid-market customers, delivering an enterprise-grade quality of experience, along with the affordability and ease of use to support customer needs today and tomorrow.”
