Plantronics and Polycom combine to form Poly

Techstination feature for Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Poly is the name of a new brand created by the purchase of Polycom by Plantronics.   Chris Thorson is Senior Director of Product Marketing…

“As we went and started to do the actual research, we said obviously there’s a long history with Plantronics starting back in the aviation days over fifty years ago and headsets that went to the moon.   And on the Polycom side, also a rich history of conference phones…over five million devices there just on the conference space in rooms there.  So there was a long, rich history of both and it feels almost odd to pick one over the other so we looked at it together and said, you know, we really think we can bring these two companies together and move forward with a new name, now Poly.   Poly really meaning many.”
