ShoreTel, Polycom, HP Cooperate to Provide Best-of-Breed Unified Communications and Infrastructure

Today, ShoreTel announced that it is providing a promotional incentive for bundled offerings that include ShoreTel, Polycom and HP solutions, which allow implementation of complete UC solutions on a secure, resilient and flexible network infrastructure. The combined offerings are delivered via ShoreTel resellers that can design, implement and support all three products, providing customers with a single point of contact.

Communications has transformed from a basic business need of merely making and receiving phone calls into the ability to communicate, collaborate and conference – from anywhere, on any network, using any device – via a seamless voice, video, data, messaging, and mobility platform.

The combination of ShoreTel, Polycom and HP allows organizations to:

  • Simplify design and management by enabling a flexible approach that adapts to future changes while driving down the complexity of management.
  • Deliver a consistent user experience (including video, voice, IM and presence) across a variety of platforms and device types, through the right infrastructure.
  • Increase reliability and resiliency with uninterrupted availability through a flexible network and distributed unified communications architecture.

The promotional bundles give customers the flexibility to build the right solution architecture. ShoreTel is now providing a matching financial incentive for systems purchased with the Polycom and HP promotional bundles. The incentive further underscores the TCO advantage of the three companies.

Delivering best-of-breed reliability, scalability, and ease-of-use with the lowest TCO in the industry, the bundles provide a broad portfolio, which supports a wide array of verticals and solution requirements that empower organizations to effectively and efficiently connect and collaborate with their employees, partners and customers.

The offering includes on-premise, cloud and mobility solutions from ShoreTel, HP Networking solutions, and Polycom® RealPresence® video and voice solutions (including the Polycom® HDX® series of desktop and conference room video systems, Polycom® VVX™ business media phone, Polycom® RealPresence® Experience immersive theater series, and many more).
