Telecom Lead America: Polycom announced that mBlox, a
mobile commerce technology provider, is using Polycom RealPresence video
collaboration solutions across its global offices.
mBlox has selected Polycom to boost business efficiency
by bringing people together for face-to-face collaboration and content sharing
in high definition.
mBlox enables enterprises and solution partners to engage
with 5 billion consumers by providing connections to 800 mobile operators in
over 180 countries, enabling transactions with consumers on any mobile device
across the globe.
We required an immersive 24/7 collaborative meeting
environment. Being able to communicate face-to-face from anywhere makes all the
difference when working across language and cultural divides, and it also helps
us to be more productive and get to market with new innovations faster,” said
Andrew Mutty, SVP of production and customer services, mBlox.
After just three months, the Polycom solution paid for
itself. We have seen savings in excess of Â£100,000 annually,” Mutty added.
On the recommendation of Polycom partner Gage Networks, a
global provider of Cloud Communications Services, mBlox chose Polycom HDX
7000 Room Telepresence systems, across three office sites in London,
Singapore and Sunnyvale, along with Polycom VVX 1500 video-enabled
business media phones.
The key value proposition for mBlox was to communicate
globally and simply through one communications platform. The ability to bring
in third parties through a Cloud Communications Platform, which leverages
the Polycom RealPresence Platform, has enabled companies with a multi-site
location such as mBlox to do short code 4-digit dialing between different
continents and locations.
The Gage Networks Cloud Communications Platform provides
an extremely cost-effective way to truly unify communications,” said Andrew Davis,
CEO of Gage Networks.
and HTC Corporation announced an agreement to collaborate and
enable Polycom RealPresence Mobile on select HTC smartphones and
tablets in mid-2012.
