Plantronics Listed Among Top Finalists For The 2012 Microsoft Communications Technology Partner Of The Year Award

Today, Plantronics (NYSE:PLT) announced it has been selected as a finalist for the Microsoft Communications Technology Partner of the Year Award. The Microsoft Partner Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year.

“We’ve been fortunate to be a Microsoft partner award recipient for the past several years, and the continued validation of our efforts is greatly appreciated,” said Shantanu Sarkar, vice president, software development, Plantronics. “The confluence of hardware and software coming from Plantronics married with Microsoft Lync enables customers to benefit from better communications and more streamlined business processes. It’s an exciting time to be working in UC, and we’re very glad to be doing so with such an outstanding partner.”

Awards were presented in multiple categories, with winners chosen from a set of nearly 3,000 entrants worldwide. The Communications Technology Partner of the Year Award recognizes a partner who is helping customers to advance their businesses by building communications products and/or applications on the Microsoft Lync platform. This solution integrated communications across a wide range of business processes and productivity tools (such as end-user devices, voice and video solution, and communications-enabled business process (CEBPs)). It solved customer business challenges by increasing efficiency, enhancing features and functionality, or by extending the existing products with unique add-ons.

“We are proud to recognize our 2012 Partner Award finalists for their outstanding commitments to solving customer challenges,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. “Our partners are critical to our success as a company, and it is their creativity and innovative thinking in solving the unique needs of our customers that serves as the foundation for mutual, long-term success. We congratulate this year’s finalists on their achievements and look forward to following their continued success in the future.”
