Polycom Rebate Program 2019 Ends Dec. 31st!

Polycom VVX 300 - Polycom Rebate ProgramYour business could save up to $60 per device this holiday season with the Polycom Rebate Program.

If you trade in your old desk phones, you can get rebates for multiple desk phones and conference phones available through the VirtualPBX store.

Polycom phones work with VirtualPBX Phone Plans, but you don’t need to be a VirtualPBX customer to participate. You only need to purchase 5 or more Polycom phones and match each purchased phone with an eligible trade-in. Visit PolyRebate.com to register for your rebate, and visit VirtualPBX to purchase your new models.

Rebate Conditions

The Polycom Rebate Program 2019 isn’t stringent with its conditions. You only need to find out which phones you want to purchase and the hardware that’s available for trade-in.

Two broad categories of phones are represented in the program:

  • Polycom SIP Handsets, including base models in the VVX 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, and 600 series, and the Soundstation IP 5000
  • Skype for Business Handsets, including VVX models labeled as the Skype for Business versions

Official program details are available at this link. The following sections here cover the basics.

Polycom SIP Handsets

Polycom VVX 400This is the category of the phones listed in the VirtualPBX Store.

To claim the rebate, you only need to purchase and match, as a trade-in, at least 5 eligible phones. Trade-ins can be Polycom phones and competitors’ phones. Polycom states the criteria as follows.

Eligible competitors phones include “any working business grade desktop phone from a vendor other than Polycom.”

Eligible Polycom phones include “all Polycom SoundPoint IP phones, SoundStation Conference phones, Polycom CX500, CX600, CX300, and VVX Series — noting that all Polycom equipment must have been purchased over one year ago to be eligible for rebate.”

Polycom Skype for Business Handsets

Similarly, phones in the Skype for Business category are available for a rebate upon purchase when at least 5 models are purchased and replaced with an appropriate trade-in.

Eligible trade-ins for these models do not include competitors’ devices. Polycom lists the eligible phones as “all Polycom SoundPoint IP phones, SoundStation Conference phones, Polycom CX500, CX600, CX3000, and VVX Series phones” — again noting that “all Polycom equipment must have been purchased over one year ago to be eligible for rebate.”

Polycom Rebate Program 2019

Polycom SoundStation IP 5000The Polycom Rebate Program only lasts until the end of the year. Use of any rebates need to be complete by Dec. 31, 2019.

This could be a great opportunity for your business to refresh its collection of devices. Models like the Polycom VVX 301 are affordable enough for small or medium-size businesses that want to outfit their office rooms. The Polycom SoundStation IP 5000 can bring together entire teams in a single meeting room – great for distributed businesses and conference calls with stakeholders.

Your reason for a refresh is your own. But the immediacy of the rebate program is definitive. Collect your aging devices by the end of the year to gain discounts on an armful of new phones.

VirtualPBX Wins 2019 WebRTC Product of the Year

2019 WebRTC Product of the Year Award LogoVirtualPBX is happy to announce its winning of the 2019 WebRTC Product of the Year Award from INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine and WebRTC World.

This marks the second consecutive year that the VirtualPBX Web Phone has been recognized for its excellence in browser-based communications.

Advancing the WebRTC Market

As in past years, the 2019 WebRTC Product of the Year Award highlights the products that companies have developed for use in a broad range of communications activities.

Other recognized organizations include those that have built a visual interpreter for the blind and online meeting spaces.

VirtualPBX Web Phone Promo VideoVirtualPBX addresses its business communications audience with Web Phone, which was recently released as Version 2.0. The upgraded version improves upon the essential telephone functions that were available in the initial version.

Now customers of the VirtualPBX Business Phone System can use Web Phone to take and transfer calls, access individual user’s address books and call history, manage voicemail, and access the VirtualPBX Status Site through an updated desktop and mobile interface.

Further additions, including Texting (SMS) capability and CRM Integration are forthcoming as Web Phone features.

2019 WebRTC Product of the Year Reactions

VirtualPBX COO Lon Baker expressed his excitement about the award win and spoke further on the extensibility of the Web Phone as a platform that will continue to evolve to meet customer demands.

“Winning the 2019 WebRTC Product of the Year is an excellent comment on how hard the VirtualPBX team has worked to bring Web Phone into its current state,” Baker said.

“It was a great phone to begin with. Now, with Version 2.0, it’s even better because of its extensive set of core features. We’re all looking forward to additions like SMS and CRM that will help our customers make the most of their phone plans.”

The free, full-featured Web Phone comes with every VirtualPBX Phone Plan and runs on Chrome and Firefox browsers. It can compliment a host of office phones or work as a user’s primary phone on their computer or smartphone.

Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO, noted that innovation in the communications market helped the award winners stand out.

“It gives me great pleasure to honor VirtualPBX as a 2019 recipient of the WebRTC Product of the Year Award,” Tehrani said. “Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by VirtualPBX in their groundbreaking work on the Web Phone.”

Innovation and continued effort will allow future Web Phone releases to continue to improve and, perhaps, reach future awards milestones like this year’s.
