Polycom Advantage Service

Change your perspective on value-added support services step by step

Change your perspective on value-added support services

When your unified communications environment is growing in size, span and complexity, it becomes more difficult to manage your videoconferencing investments effectively, to leverage the latest features as they become available and to ensure the best possible user experience.

But those initiatives are still imperative to the success of your video collaboration solutions.

For large or growing organizations, Polycom Advantage Service is the first step to solving those challenges. Advantage Service provides valuable and actionable information on the status and utilization of your collaboration solution, and faster time to problem resolution.

 

Key benefits of Polycom Advantage Service:

  • Provides insight into your video usage to help make timely and informed decisions
  • Increases the success and return on investment of your video collaboration products
  • Gives priority access to experts and support when you need it


Optional services to consider in addition to Advantage:
