Sentri announces a definitive agreement to be acquired by Polycom (NASDAQ: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C). Sentri is excited about this news, and we believe it will be good for our customers and partners. We expect the acquisition to close in about a month.
Polycom’s voice and video collaboration solutions are trusted by more than 415,000 customers around the world, and Polycom and its ecosystem of partners provide truly unified communications solutions that deliver the best user experience, highest multi-vendor interoperability, and lowest TCO. In addition, Polycom has a very strong alliance with Microsoft for video and voice solutions that are interoperable with Lync.
Sentri will become the catalyst to an expanded Advanced Services practice within Polycom, bringing together Polycom’s award-winning voice, video, and telepresence solutions with Sentri’s extensive professional and managed services around UC&C and the Microsoft technology suite.
For our clients, we look forward to continuing to service your business needs. To our partners, Polycom plans to create a Services Center of Excellence in North America to help partners build and expand competencies around customer requirements for tightly integrated multi-vendor solutions.
And be sure to expect more exciting news on what we have planned!
