SANTA CRUZ, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Plantronics (NYSE: PLT), today announced Plantronics Manager Pro v3.0, a cloud service that customers and partners can use to deploy and manage Plantronics communications devices. With this new service, Information Technology professionals can rapidly deploy a consistent user experience to any number of Plantronics audio devices while reducing complexity for end-users. Part of the Plantronics Spokes portfolio, Plantronics Manager Pro along with the new Plantronics Hub application, also helps IT Managers rapidly diagnose and resolve client-side unified communications deployment issues.

“Plantronics Manager Pro is a compelling new service for enterprise IT managers that want to speed the acceptance and deployment of unified communications,” said Bob Kelly, Director of Product Management for Enterprise Applications, Plantronics. “As customers shift towards cloud services strategies for their software applications, we are pleased to be expanding the range of our software offerings to ultimately add more value to IT, end users, and partners.”

As part of this announcement, Plantronics is also significantly expanding the Plantronics Spokes software portfolio. Plantronics Spokes is a portfolio of software products for enterprises and consumers that gather and analyze information about the status, state, and performance of Plantronics products to activate new experiences for customers, users, and managers. Today the following new Plantronics Spokes software products are available for customers and partners:

Plantronics Hub

Plantronics Hub for Mac and Plantronics Hub for Windows are software applications that enable users to configure and manage their Plantronics communications devices. When Plantronics Hub is combined with Plantronics Manager Pro, IT managers can control and manage corporate-wide unified communications deployment, manage inventory and push firmware updates to devices. IT can provide as much or as little control over device settings to end-users as they want.

Plantronics Hub Software Development Kit (SDK)

Plantronics SDK for Mac and Plantronics SDK for Windows v3.0 are new kits that enable developers to leverage the intelligence of sensors contained in select Plantronics headsets to automate routine processes, or to make communications interactions more predictive and more intelligent. Today there are several applications in the market that have been developed using version 2.8 of this SDK. Developers can download the new SDK, see sample applications, and receive support from the Plantronics Developer Connection at http://developer.plantronics.com/welcome.
