Polycom® RealPresence® Video Solutions And Microsoft® Lync™ Unify Video, Voice And Data Communications To Help Leading Pharmaceutical Company Lonza Expand Global Collaboration

Stocks in this article: PLCM

Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), today announced that Lonza, one of the world's leading suppliers to the pharmaceutical, healthcare and life science industries, is using a combination of Microsoft® Lync™ Server 2010 and Polycom® RealPresence® video solutions, implemented by Polycom service provider partner Orange Business Services, to provide an end-to-end unified communications and collaboration solution to over 11,000 staff across 90 sites around the world. Lonza employees, who are based in multiple locations and involved in a wide range of chemical and biological active pharmaceutical projects from research to final product manufacture, can now securely communicate via video, voice, instant messaging, and presence no matter where team members are located.

Lonza has also extended their video collaboration to include Polycom® RealPresence® Immersive video suites (Polycom® OTX™ series) and Polycom® RealPresence® Room video solutions (Polycom® HDX® 8000 systems), all powered by the Polycom® RealPresence® Platform – interoperable and comprehensive UC&C software infrastructure for universal video collaboration. The RealPresence Platform delivers a highly personalized experience to every user, where staff can click a name on their Lync contact list and instantly connect and collaborate together, face-to-face via Polycom video on their desktop or in a conference room-based system to bring people together in high definition.

“We chose Polycom primarily for their experience and reputation; secondly, the interoperability with other systems; and thirdly because of the strength of its strategic relationship and commitment to integrate with Microsoft Lync,” said Ernst Hutter, Head of Global IT Infrastructure, Lonza. “The combination of Microsoft Lync and Polycom video collaboration has significantly changed our way of working in the last two years. We have more and more home users and this has allowed the organization to implement a more flexible working environment, so employees can work more effectively away from the office and securely join video meetings from home or on the move.”
