Poly’s pink speakerphone will be sold in partnership with National Breast Cancer Foundation
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – October 1, 2021 – Poly (NYSE: POLY) today announced a limited edition pink Poly Sync 20 speakerphone in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which will be available in October while supplies last. For every pink Poly Sync 20 sold, Poly will donate $10 to National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Poly is partnering with National Breast Cancer Foundation in support of their fight against breast cancer which focuses on early detection, education, and support services for those affected by breast cancer.
Research shows about one in eight U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. In 2021, over 280,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women and about 2,650 in men. While we don’t have a cure to end breast cancer, raising awareness surrounding breast cancer is crucial as early detection often means less invasive and debilitating treatments are required. 63 percent of breast cancer cases are diagnosed at a localized stage, for which the 5-year survival rate is 99 percent, according to NBCF.
“As a breast cancer survivor, I am proud to work for a company that supports this cause and aims to help raise awareness of breast cancer,” said Tamara Lane, Director, Product Marketing, Personal Solutions, Poly. “I strongly believe that early detection is key to becoming a cancer survivor and Poly’s initiative will raise funds that support services for those affected by the disease.”
“The idea to create a pink Poly Sync speakerphone started with an employee suggestion and became Poly’s first purpose-built, cause-related product,” said Dave Shull, President and CEO, Poly. “I hope that our efforts bring attention and funding to the worthwhile cause of detecting, treating, and ultimately preventing breast cancer.”
The pink Poly Sync 20 speakerphone is the same exact product as our Poly Sync 20 USB-A – a remarkable sounding three-in-one device: a personal speakerphone, a portable music speaker, and a smartphone charger. Its compact, sleek design and carrying case makes the speakerphone perfect for users on the go and is designed to keep you connected wherever you are.
The speakerphone’s USB and Bluetooth® connectivity options offer flexibility, while its intelligent microphones can easily detect voices throughout the room to enable crisp audio quality for both work and entertainment. For seamless voice integration, users can also connect Poly Sync speakerphones to Siri or Google voice assistants, and personalize their Poly Sync 20 for easy listening.
The limited-edition pink Poly Sync 20 is available starting October 1, 2021 on Poly.com (in the US only) and Amazon.com (in North America) for $129.95 (while supplies last).
