Polycom expands Australian business with new Qld office


Unified communications vendor, Polycom, has expanded its Australian operations with the opening of a Queensland office.

Polycom says the decision to expand its Australian footprint by establishing an office in Brisbane is in response to the “growing demand for unified communications (UC) in the region.”

Polycom Australia & New Zealand Managing Director, Gary Denman, said the company’s Queensland business has been growing year on year, and “there is definitely an appetite from local businesses for video collaboration solutions.”

“Organisations have changed the way they communicate, collaborate and connect, especially across regions as vast as Queensland. This cultural shift means that video has become the new dial tone for Australian businesses and Queensland is no exception.”

Denman said Polycom’s new Brisbane office features a Solutions Centre to showcase a selection of the company’s open, standards-based, high definition (HD) unified communications solutions and services that form part of the Polycom RealPresence Platform.

According to Denman, the new office opening demonstrates the importance Polycom places on its Australian operations, and also represents an ongoing commitment to support its local channel community and extensive partner ecosystem throughout Australia.

Denman cites a Frost & Sullivan forecast that Australia’s UC sector is estimated to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.9% between 2012 and 2019, and he said Polycom sees Queensland as a particularly strong region for growth.

“As our industry continues to change and grow at a significant pace, we are seeing much innovation in the way companies are adopting video as a critical component of their business culture, process and operations.

“The healthcare sector in particular is doing some very unique things in terms of remote patient diagnosis, linking Australians from every corner of the country to specialists thousands of miles away.

“Expanding our presence into Queensland poses an exciting new milestone for Polycom as we seek to provide even more support to our loyal partners who are driving great outcomes for our customers.”

Denman said Polycom’s dedicated Queensland team will focus on a number of key vertical industries in the region including mining, education, healthcare, legal and the public sector. “The team will also be responsible for supporting Polycom’s extensive channel network with go-to market strategies and initiatives to help partners create competitive advantage,” he concluded.
