Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq:PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications (UC), today recognized several of its top performing channel partners from around the world at TEAM Polycom 2012, the company’s annual sales and partner conference, held this week in Orlando, Fla. The annual TEAM Polycom Partner Awards showcase partners who exhibited outstanding sales performance in 2011 in each of the major partner categories and, this year, the company is also recognizing partners for excellence in innovation, industry focus, services, and integration.

“Polycom’s diverse partner ecosystem is a key component in our vision to make video collaboration ubiquitous throughout the world,” said Ron Myers, Polycom’s senior vice president of global channels. “This year’s roster of global and theater award recipients illustrates just a small fraction of Polycom’s nearly 7,000 alliance and channel partners worldwide and demonstrates how fortunate we at Polycom are to work with the most innovative and customer-focused partners on six continents. With their help, we’re continuing to drive sales for Polycom RealPresence video solutions, and rapidly helping people and businesses everywhere unleash the greatness of human collaboration through face-to-face visual communications.”

At an awards ceremony in Orlando, Polycom presented global awards to partners whose achievements impact Polycom’s business on a worldwide basis, along with theater awards for each of the company’s four operating regions and country awards to partners that primarily do business within a single country.

In addition to established awards recognizing leaders in each key partner category, Polycom this year introduced a new series of Excellence Awards:

  • Excellence in Innovation honors partners who demonstrated a unique or innovative approach to implementing Polycom solutions.
  • Excellence in Industry recognizes partners that were successful in pursuing business within a major vertical industry, such as education, healthcare, or government.
  • Excellence in Services recognizes partners who excelled in services, customer satisfaction and engagement with Polycom’s services and sales teams.
  • Excellence in Integration spotlights partners that successfully integrated Polycom solutions with a UC platform from a strategic alliance partner.
