More Intuitive Audio Products Based on Microsoft Technologies Designed to Increase Adoption and Provide a Rich User Experience

Lync Conference 2013 - The changing workplace and mobility of today's workers can present challenges for companies rolling out Unified Communications (UC). Flexible working requires tools that keep people connected in busy airports as easily as from home or in the office and smarter devices that bring context to Microsoft Lync® deliver a more natural experience. Plantronics (NYSE: PLT) understands the way people work and has developed a suite of products designed to make communicating through Microsoft Lync easier, regardless of your environment.

"Enterprises of all sizes can benefit from Microsoft's productivity software, both on-premise and in the cloud," said Giovanni Mezgec, General Manager of Lync Product Marketing at Microsoft. "Plantronics's offerings provide its customers with the ability to accelerate their adoption of new technologies across the enterprise and helps increase employee productivity, efficiency, and organizational flexibility."

Plantronics Optimized for Microsoft Lync 2013 portfolio includes the Voyager Legend? UC headset and the Blackwire® 700 series headsets which have sensors than can deliver contextual information into software applications. The intelligence delivered by the Voyager Legend UC includes information such as the person's proximity to their PC and if they are wearing a headset or not. This information can make it easier for a flexible workforce to connect by providing more accurate presence information.

"Our portfolio of UC products provides great performance and, by tapping into the Plantronics SDK, devices like the Voyager Legend UC can also deliver important information about a person's physical environment into applications like Lync," said Bill Loewenthal, vice president of Enterprise Solutions at Plantronics. "With our latest sensor-enabled wearable technology, users can look forward to boosting the power of a Lync environment through contextual intelligence."
