The unified communications space is seeing an explosion of critical applications as hybrid work and the move to the cloud becomes more and more prominent. Poly, a market leader that provides premium audio and video products, is helping lead the movement with offerings like private video conferencing software Poly Clariti and cloud-based device management and insight platform Poly Lens. At the same time, the amount of developers within Poly’s partner ecosystem has also grown rapidly. Poly needed to have a single place where third-party software developers can access all the tools and APIs they need to work with Poly.
Enter the Poly API Marketplace, launched today by Poly and powered by Rapid. This new marketplace streamlines the way Poly’s internal and partner developers work together and reduces the time to develop key technologies by providing developers with a single platform to find, connect to, and manage APIs across Poly’s vast ecosystem of technology solutions. Every API is centralized in a single location providing complete visibility into all the available assets across lines of business.
As Poly’s Director of Software Product Management noted: “What I really liked about the Rapid partnership and what we have built today is that it focuses first and foremost on the developer experience. The Poly API Marketplace makes it easy to find everything, catalog, and access tools and there is a team at Rapid building out even more APIs, which will create more value for developers. Empowering a positive and collaborative developer experience is primarily why we picked Rapid to partner with on this initiative.”
Poly plans to build on the Poly API marketplace, using the platform as a means to propel its community into the future by enabling developers to discover relevant APIs, fostering community support, and offering fast integration with code snippets in multiple languages. We’re proud to work with Poly as they launch this marketplace, increase the number of developers that can access Poly’s growing number of APIs and bring even more unified communication offerings and capabilities to market.
