The Partner Network of Polycom, one of the global leaders in standards-based unified communications and collaboration solutions with more than 400,000 customers worldwide, is an ecosystem of UC providers committed to enabling interoperability through open standards, and to extend the reach, quality and security of appropriate technologies. The Platinum status is reserved for partners that demonstrate as a core part of their business the highest level of expertise and commitment to the entire Polycom portfolio of solutions – a distincition awarded to only very few companies, requiring the completion of an extensive certification and training program. "We are very excited about this award. It honors the sustained expertise and outstanding commitment of our entire team, and shows that we are able to serve the market at the highest level" says Joerg Weisflog, CEO of DEKOM AG.
However, as a Platinum Partner, DEKOM does not only work especially close with Polycom on sales, implementation and service, and gains privileged access to resources in order to realize even the most complex customer projects in the most efficient, safe and rapid way. The Hamburg-based company is one of the few certified partner to implement the Polycom room systems for Microsoft Lync, and thus further strengthens its leading position. "Microsoft and Polycom jointly invest in development and go-to-market initiatives to truly unify communications, and DEKOM actively participates" explains Weisflog: "We are close to launching the DEKOM LMPS, a seamlessly interoperable version of our award-winning Media Presence System, which will provide an even more consistent and intuitive collaboration experience by integrating both the RealPresence platform and Lync features."
