Poly VVX Now Features Microban Antimicrobial Technology

Following the successful launch of Poly Rove DECT IP phones with built-in Microban, which brought antimicrobial protection to the frontlines, the Poly VVX x50 joins the growing list of Poly phones that actively reduce the growth of bacteria, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Solving one of the challenges of hybrid working

With an extraordinary  87% of employees now working from home either full or part time, hybrid work will be an inevitable part of our future.  It’s not just employees who are looking for hybrid working solutions, the interest is strong amongst employers too.

What does hybrid work mean for your office?  There are many considerations across people (culture, management, etc.), spaces (workplace experience), and technology (IT, collaboration, etc.), and key decisions to be made around hot-desking or hotelling.  There’s a great definition of these terms by our partner Ring Central here – essentially desks, and anything on them will be shared by multiple employees.

Sharing is caring

It’s no surprise there is a heightened awareness amongst employees about hygiene of shared items in the office.  With 74.9% of employees valuing general cleanliness, ensuring these shared spaces and technology elements are clean and hygienic is critical for the success of any hybrid workforce.

Whilst you can put in place cleaning policies with the aim of keeping items hygienic, why not go a step further and give employees a visible reminder that their shared equipment is enhanced with Microban® antimicrobial product protection, so that it stays cleaner, fresher, and more durable for longer. Each phone in our VVXx50 range will have a ‘protected by Microban’ logo on the handset to clearly communicate the enhanced level of protection.  And this isn’t just a coating, it’s integrated protection that lasts the life of the product, actively reducing the growth of bacteria 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You might be asking yourself, “Do phones with Microban ever need additional applications or treatments?” The answer is, no, because the antimicrobial technology is built-in; it won’t wash-off or wear away.

What’s the catch?

Come closer… We’re allowed to do that now! And we’ll let you in on some (not so) secret information.  There isn’t a catch!  That’s right, the Poly VVXx50 range will still feature Poly HD Voice and acoustic fence for superb high definition sound, an intuitive interface to make it easy to use, and seamless integration with your new or existing UC equipment.  The Poly VVXx50 has everything you need in a deskphone for a hybrid work environment.  So if you find yourself in a shared space or high-touch work setting, you can rest assured that Poly phones integrated with Microban will enable you to communicate with total confidence.
