Polycom, Inc, a provider of unified communications services, has announced that HomeAway has selected Polycom's RealPresence video collaboration solutions to transform its culture to video collaboration, allowing employees to communicate visually, face-to-face across its distributed business locations.
The video solution includes the Polycom RealPresence Platform, along with video systems to connect employees and clients across various environments ranging from conference rooms to work offices to home offices to mobile or field offices.
"We live and breathe video collaboration it's fundamental to our culture," said David O'Rourke, senior manager, global IT, HomeAway. "We have Polycom deployed across four continents and conduct video conferences every day. A key component of our video collaboration strategy is the use of mobile devices like the iPad 2 or the new iPad to increase the productivity of remote personnel, whether they are in their living room, on the road or in a vacation rental property.
"Polycom has made it all possible with secure and reliable HD video that enables our distributed team to have face-to-face conversations from anywhere. We can even show each other video of new properties in real time. Polycom's platform is breaking down time and distance barriers and helping fuel our growth by allowing our people to meet anywhere at any time."
HomeAway's implementation also includes Polycom HDX Series room telepresence systems featuring the Polycom EagleEye Director for immersive video collaboration as well as Polycom's desktop and mobile offerings.
