Polycom Technology Partner Event Zero to Deliver Polycom Ready Solution

Event Zero accelerates provisioning through interoperability of the UC Commander with Polycom VVX series phones.

Brisbane, Australia, July 30, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Event Zero, the provider of the UC Commander Application suite that interacts directly with Microsoft Lync and Skype for Business covering all aspects of operational reporting and analytics, today launched a new solution that allows easy configuration and deployment of Polycom phones and has been demonstrated to interoperate with solutions from Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C).

UC Commander works with Polycom VVX series phones to easily configure, deploy, and manage any number of Polycom phones in a Lync/Skype for Business environment.

Because Event Zero has satisfied Polycom’s extensive interoperability requirements, it can brand UC Commander as Polycom Ready. Polycom Ready solutions, including end-user devices, network devices, and software applications, are tested for interoperability with Polycom products and applications. When customers see solutions bearing the Polycom Ready badge, they know they’ve been proven to work with the world’s leading open standards-based UC&C platform.

“The recognition from Polycom really speaks to the quality of the UC Commander Toolset and the value we’re providing to users around the world,” said David Tucker, Event Zero CEO. “The Polycom Ready designation instantly communicates to customers that they can deploy UC Commander within their Polycom UC&C infrastructure with confidence.

“Finding the right tool to deploy and manage a large number of phones had been an issue holding back some Enterprise-sized Microsoft voice deployments. UC Commander answers this challenge by providing a single interface for deploying, managing, and maintaining inventory for Polycom endpoints in a global environment. Innovators like Event Zero help extend and enhance Polycom’s UC&C solutions by delivering real value and reliable interoperability – and because of that, UC Commander has earned the Polycom Ready badge,” said Ted Colton, Polycom Group Vice President, Technology Partners & Alliances at Polycom. “Together, we’re delivering UC&C solutions that power richer conversations and higher productivity, transforming lives and businesses in the process.”
