Primus Offers Customers New Suite of Polycom Hosted PBX Phones

New product lineup boasts unparalleled sound and clarity

TORONTO, July 21 /CNW/ - Primus Canada today announced the introduction of a full suite of Polycom Hosted PBX phones to its commercial product lineup. Now available across Canada, these new phones offer Polycom(R) HD Voice(TM) capabilities advancing customers to the next level of evolution in voice technology.

"We're thrilled to be able to provide Primus customers with even more choice," says Jeff Lorenz, VP Sales & Marketing, PRIMUS CANADA. "Today's announcement underscores our commitment to providing not only the most advanced products and technology, but a full suite of end-to-end services that today's businesses come to expect."

Primus' Hosted PBX suite of Polycom phones possesses Polycom's signature trait of unparalleled sound and clarity. As more and more businesses move towards a unified communications model, the requirement for a crystal-clear, one-stop, conference solution continues to increase.

"Polycom's partnership with Primus is an exciting start to what the company sees as a huge growth opportunity," says Jeff Garratt, Vice President for Polycom Canada. "By aligning with a premier and well-positioned national brand, such as Primus, Polycom will be able to expand nationally and reach more customers than ever before," continued Garratt.

With telecommuting, international conferencing and global transactions becoming the norm, the introduction of the new Polycom conferencing phones could not come at a better time. Utilizing Dynamic Noise Reduction technology, all phones in this new suite facilitate effective communications through increased clarity and comprehension, regardless of the number of conference participants.

Primus offers a full and comprehensive portfolio of phones appropriate for the cubicle user to the executive officer. Businesses have the choice of six distinct phone products, carefully tailored for various business needs. Each phone in the new lineup boasts premium clarity using Polycom's HD Voice(TM) and innovative features. Additionally, the portfolio includes the Polycom Soundstation IP Conference Phones - specifically engineered for small to medium conference rooms as well as executive offices. Included in the Conference Phones line-up is the award-winning Polycom SoundStation IP 7000.

Primus Hosted PBX is an efficient and scalable phone system that eliminates the cost of owning and servicing an expensive PBX system. By providing 24/7 support, companies can focus on their core business instead of devoting resources to maintaining telephony. With Hosted PBX, all phone lines and long distance calls between offices are included in the cost of the service.
