Jan 4, 2021

Cloud Unified Communications Pair with
Noise-Canceling Headsets and HD Cameras for Enterprise-Class WFH Experience

SEATTLE – January 5, 2021NetFortris, an award-winning end-to-end provider of managed cloud communication solutions and network services, and Poly, a global communications company offering headsets, video and audio conferencing, desk phones, analytics software and services, have collaborated for a special work-from-home edition of Designing SpacesTM airing on Lifetime TV.

The special episode featuring work-from-home solutions from NetFortris and Poly airs January 8, 2021, on the award-winning home improvement show, which travels the country to remodel, redecorate and redesign the spaces we call home.

“The ability to work anywhere with cloud and mobile technologies took on new significance in 2020 as millions of workers, responding to the pandemic, instantly transformed spare bedrooms and kitchens into workspaces,” said Steven Horgan, Director of Product Management at NetFortris. “While most of us expected the rise in work from home to be temporary, the benefits to both remote workers and employers have made it attractive as a permanent option. Now, it’s time for companies to trade the ad-hoc and freemium solutions for enterprise-class technology that can support a hybrid workforce with collaboration, security and productivity.”

Designing Spaces’ work-from-home special will feature home office improvements from NetFortris and Poly, such as: ·

NetFortris Comm-unity, a proprietary cloud communications solution, which includes the myHUD Desktop and myHUD Mobile applications that make it possible to call, chat, video and audio conference and hold web meetings with staff and customers no matter where they are. Comm-unity is housed in georedundant data centers for always-on functionality from any internet-enabled device.

Poly Voyager 5200 UC headset, which has USB or Bluetooth connections, works well with myHUD Desktop at home or in the office and pairs with myHUD Mobile when on the road. Plus, it has WindSmart technology to eliminate background sounds like pets and children.

Poly Eagle Eye Mini Camera, which outdoes built-in laptop cameras to deliver high-definition video meetings right from the myHUD Desktop application giving an enterprise-class WFH experience.

“Poly is thrilled to be at the crossroads of technology and design, where form meets function, alongside NetFortris, to enable work-from-anywhere,” said Chris Thorson, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Poly. “Our headsets and video conferencing devices are designed so you can be seen and heard, wherever you chose to work.

“NetFortris has a longstanding partnership with Poly, and now we’re teaming up to take work from home to the next level,” said Horgan. “Together, NetFortris Comm-unity and Poly headsets, phones, audio and video conferencing devices offer businesses secure and professional communications and collaboration environments whether their teams are WFH, in the office or on the go.”
