Masergy Introduces Polycom Phone Rental Program to Ease Unified Communications Adoption

New Channel Program Helps Enterprise Customers Reduce CAPEX and Quickly Embrace Unified Communications as a Service

Channel Partners Conference & Expo – Las Vegas, NV – February 26, 2014 – Masergy Communications Inc., a global leader in managed networking and cloud services, today announced the availability of its new Polycom phone rental program. The channel friendly program allows businesses to cost-effectively deploy Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS)—anywhere throughout the world—without the CAPEX burden of purchasing business media phones.

Masergy’s global UCaaS enables businesses to quickly leverage advanced Unified Communication (UC) features to migrate voice services into the cloud. The company’s hybrid delivery model also provides industry-leading customer support as well as a guaranteed Service Level Agreement (SLA).

The rental program leverages Polycom’s complete line of VVX series high definition phones. Masergy also recently introduced the availability of two recent additions to its media end point line up:

  • Polycom®VVX® 300/310 – Powerful entry-level business media phones with 6 programmable line keys, ideal for today’s cubicle workers that handle low-to-moderate volume of calls leveraging the unparalleled clarity of Polycom’s HD voice (speaker, handset and headset), intuitive interface with backlit graphical LCD, and Gig Ethernet ports.
  • Polycom® VVX® 400/410 – Next-generation, mid-range business media phone; also provides Polycom’s HD voice, 12 programmable line keys, 3.5” screen for ease of use and includes Gig Ethernet ports and enhanced call-handling for knowledge workers and administrative assistants.

“Polycom’s VVX Business Media Phones are flexible; enterprise-grade solutions. They can seamlessly connect into an existing call control platform thus allowing organizations to fully leverage previous IT investments. Equally important, they offer the industry’s best sound quality with features like Polycom HD Voice and patented Polycom Acoustic Clarity Technology for crystal-clear calls” said Shawn Puddester, vice president, North America Sales, Global Cloud & Service Provider Solutions.

“A significant inhibitor for embracing UC has been assuming the cost burden of replacing desktop phones,” explains John Dumbleton, senior vice president of business development for Masergy. “Masergy has directly addressed this issue by allowing organizations to lease high-quality Polycom phones in a ‘pay as you go’ model—preserving funds while increasing employee productivity.”

Masergy’s Polycom phone rental program is currently available. For more information please
