Cwmbran, 19th January 2016; SIPHON Networks Ltd (SIPHON), a leading Unified Communications (UC) Solutions Provider, has been recognised for excellence in innovation and customer success by Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM) and named Circle of Excellence Partner of the Year for EMEA - West.


Polycom recognised its top partners during a Circle of Excellence Awards ceremony, at the company’s annual partner conference, TEAM Polycom 2016, held in Nashville, Tennessee, USA, from 11th to 14th January, 2016.

 

Circle of Excellence honourees excel at incorporating value-added solutions and services which create lasting value for customers. These partners also demonstrate the highest level of expertise in implementing Polycom’s solutions, while delivering best-in-class performance and exceptional sales results.

 

Commenting on the award, Steve Harris, managing director SIPHON, said; “We’re delighted that our hard work has once again been acknowledged by Polycom, this time with a Circle of Excellence award. SIPHON had another fantastic year in 2015. We added the enablement of Cloud Services and Microsoft UC in Skype for Business environments to our portfolio offering and saw our customer base grow by 55%. Combined with the increased demand for IP end-points from our existing base, the sales figures seem to be a strong endorsement of the approach that we’re taking.”

 

Glynn Jones, Vice President EMEA Channels and Advanced Technology Group, added; “Polycom Circle of Excellence award winners exemplify excellence in solution selling. They lead with a consultative approach in key accounts and the offering from SIPHON certainly incorporates both value-added solutions and services. 
We congratulate SIPHON and look forward to supporting their continued success.”
