Teams that have a well-functioning, collaborative dynamic are the heartbeat of any thriving business — it’s a fact that bears repeating. To empower your people to share their skills, ideas, and inspiration, the first thing you’ll need to do is get them out of their silos and connected to one another. To do that, they’re going to need the right collaboration tools. Introducing the next generation Poly Trio C60 — a smart conferencing device for any meeting space to bring your people together. And, even though most of us are working from home right now, it’s only a matter of time before we’ll be back in the conference room where Trio runs the show.
Invest in the Best (Tools)
Nothing trips up collaboration like your communication tools being complicated and unintuitive. Trouble getting meetings started or having issues with audio can drastically influence the tone of the meeting. According to Deloitte, two-thirds of any company’s competitive edge is based on the experience they can give their clients and partners. The Trio C60 offers a tried and true, easy to use experience for your teams, so when it comes to meeting with high-stakes customers or partners, we’ll do our part to make sure your first impression is flawless.
The iconic Trio family has truly stood the test of time and remains one of Poly’s most popular options when it comes to outfitting a standard conference room. The next generation of the Poly Trio is loaded with new features and has been given a fresh modern look to complement today’s thoughtfully designed office spaces. But don’t worry, we kept all the good stuff that has kept its ‘seat on the table’.
Although it may seem untimely to think about conference room technology in the midst of a conversational environment dominated by remote work, the investment in powerful collaboration tools is a wise one — and, here’s why: eventually, the majority of office workers will get the go-ahead to resume their normal office routines. But note my qualifier, ‘the majority’. A popular contention asserts that once remote working has been proven to be effective, many nine-to-fivers will demand more flexible arrangements. This is where your remote collaboration tools become an essential element of your workplace. Aside from the usual communication with external stakeholders and teams in different locations, we predict an uptick in collaboration with remote or flex-workers that elect to work from a home office full or part-time — making your huddle and/or conference rooms the place where your people work together.
The enduring popularity of the Trio boils down to three intertwined attractive attributes: (1) its flexibility and versatility; (2) the ways in which the latter allows for a consistent use experience, and therefore, greater organizational alignment; and (3) the fact that it has been continually optimized to keep up with the latest collaboration technology. Let’s take a closer look at each, shall we?
1. Flexibility & Versatility
The Poly Trio Conferencing Series is flexible and with the introduction of the Trio C60, this goes even further. The Trio C60 can stand on its own as a high-quality conference phone, or, it can be used to control other endpoints like the Poly Studio X Family or G7500. Additionally, the Trio C60 will support a variety of the leading open SIP and UC&C services, allowing for flexibility of platforms without the need for multiple endpoints. This makes it easy for Administrators to standardize on the collaboration experience throughout your organization and also gives you peace of mind that should the organization’s needs change, your endpoints can change with it.
The Trio C60 paired with the Studio X50
Have rooms of all sizes? No problem. The Trio C60 is also adaptable to different room sizes by allowing you to ‘daisy chain’ up to three devices for larger spaces. Additionally, optional wired expansion microphones will be available Spring 2020 and DECT wireless expansion mics coming soon.
2. Consistency & Organizational Alignment
The design of the Trio Series is not only iconic, it’s also intuitive to use. For the end users, when technology is easy to use, it’s more likely to become widely adopted throughout your organization. Because the Trio can be used to control an increasing number of video endpoints, it offers a consistent user interface from room to room — eliminating the intimidation of controlling audio, video, and content sharing. From an administrative perspective, in order for any product to deliver the best experience for users, it must be simple for system administrators to manage, and maintain platform reliability, and enhance security.
3. Optimized for Collaboration
The Trio C60 will give you a variety of ways to empower and encourage teamwork. Currently, the Trio C60 will work with most leading SIP providers for audio conferencing and supports native platform experiences for both Zoom and Microsoft Teams environments — and, we’ll continue to incorporate additional native platform experiences in future releases.
Now, if you’d kindly bear with me while I geek out a bit… the new hardware and operating system give the Trio C60 up to 4x better performance than its predecessors. For wireless deployments, the C60 features 2.4-5GHz WIFI with multiple-in multiple-out (MIMO) — a technique for sending and receiving more than one data signal simultaneously to ensure a more reliable meeting experience over Wi-Fi.
