Unified communications vendor, Polycom, has opened a new Sydney office and brought on four staff to cope with rapid growth.
The office, which includes a Customer Experience Centre, will offer Polycom partners showcase space where they can bring customers to demonstrate a unified communications-ready office environment in action.
Polycom country manager, Michael Chetner, said the new office would feature staff using the entire range of Polycom solutions, right up to telepresence facilities.
"We already have a similar facility in Melbourne, which we're looking to expand, and we're going to work with our partners to replicate these solutions in their own facilities," he said.
The vendor has also upped its staff numbers. New recruits are James Brennan, manager of technical sales, Lynnette Whitfield, vertical business manager - government, education and health, Chris Bourandanis, southern region sales manager, and Ellie Harris, major account manager - enterprise.
The appointments follow three channel hires last month and are in line with the 50 per cent year-on-year headcount growth the vendor is experiencing in the APAC region, Chetner said.
The vendor had recorded strong growth across all states in Australia and highlighted government as one area where demand was on the rise, he said.
"We're a 100 per cent indirect company. The new team we've hired is a direct team to influence at a customer level and to help us service our partners," Chetner said.
