Communicator + Plantronics

Ideal partners for Unified Communications

User adoption is critical to the success of any Unified Communications (UC) implementation. Yet research shows

that the pace of adoption directly correlates with user satisfaction. In fact, the choice of headsets, handsets and

other devices can affect how quickly and effectively a UC solution is embraced.

As a Microsoft Gold Certified partner and recipient of the Partner of the Year award in 2009, Plantronics delivers

exceptional audio quality and advanced functionality through UC audio devices that are Optimized for Microsoft

Office Communicator 2007.

To match the needs of users, work styles and budgets, Plantronics offers the broadest range of optimized audio

devices to complete UC deployments. Access to comfortable headsets, with superior audio quality and seamless

integration, dramatically enhances the users’ experience and engagement, which minimizes the risk associated

with adoption of new technology.
