Poly Doubles Down on Native Microsoft Teams Experience With New CCX Business Media Phones

SANTA CRUZ, Calif., March 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Plantronics, Inc. (NYSE: PLT) (“Poly”), a global communications company, today announced the Poly CCX Series, sleek business desk phones designed for the modern office that pair a native Microsoft Teams solution with premium voice quality.

Poly CCX 500 and CCX 700 phones extend Teams straight to your desktop phone so that your calls, calendar, and meetings are fully integrated and accessible through the phone’s screen display for more efficient meetings. Joining a conference call is now as easy as one-click on the calendar. Businesses that are migrating to or those who already rely on Teams will benefit from CCX Series’ ability to function as a true unified communications platform that delivers legendary voice quality.

“We constantly hear from our customers that they need tools and solutions to adapt to their needs, not the other way around,” said Shantanu Sarkar, executive vice president, general manager, personal systems business at Poly. “Working with Microsoft allows us to push the boundaries of what it means to collaborate with solutions that just work, no matter what.”

Ilya Bukshteyn, partner director, devices for Microsoft Teams at Microsoft said, “Poly and their new CCX Series of Microsoft Teams phones, helps us focus on bringing a consistent Microsoft Teams experience to every workspace, from personal desks to shared spaces and meeting rooms. Having this consistent experience across the workplace helps our customers reduce training costs and accelerate deployment, as they continue to adopt Teams faster than any other business application in Microsoft history.”

CCX 500 and CCX 700 phones come with Polycom HD Voice and a color touch display screen. CCX 700 includes video calling right in the phone with its built-in camera. Both CCX 700 and CCX 500 phones will continue to support Skype for Business and will be available in CYQ3 in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. Additional countries to follow.
