Polycom Productivity Suite
The Polycom Productivity Suite will be shipping around April 2. The Productivity Suite is a set of five productivity applications designed to enhance a user’s overall productivity and improve their user experience when using Polycom’s SoundPoint IP and SoundStation IP phones. The applications include:
•Corporate Directory Access, which eliminates directory duplication through integration of the phone with any LDAP compliant corporate directory system (this includes support for Microsoft’s Active Directory)
•Local Call Recording, which allows any active calls to be instantly recorded using any standard USB flash drive
•Visual Conference Management, allowing a user to locally conference in 3 additional participants into a 4-way local conference call, which can be completely managed via an intuitive visual menu
•Voice Quality Monitoring, providing the IT community with a way monitor call quality in real time and proactively detect voice quality monitoring issues
•Third Party Call Control, allowing a third party application to control the phone as well as to obtain presence information from the phone
More information on the Productivity Suite can be found at Applications for SoundPoint IP Phones page at the Polycom website.
