Ignore the naysayers; unified communications isn’t only for big businesses. In fact, we’re seeing a lot of chatter about the benefits of UC for SMBs. Here are few interesting data points that we recently came across:
In a world full of change and rapidly evolving technology that has fundamentally changed the way we communicate in our personal lives, it’s astounding to see that the American corporate work environment has remained virtually unchanged in the last 30 years. Many of us still work 40-hour weeks at our desks, have limited mobility and are restricted to a few select communications options.
Communication has evolved over the years as new technologies have emerged to help us stay connected to one another. From telephones to video conferencing, we all have a diverse selection of choices at our disposal today.
You’d never go to a doctor for a haircut (or vice versa…), so why would you trust your unified communications needs to a company whose major focus is business software, networking equipment or, really, anything but UC?
With email turning 40 this year, a lot of communication experts and information workers are starting to ask, “Is email still relevant in today’s communication environment?” While it’s easy to see the flaws in email, we’d like to think that it is still a vital part of every business’s communication toolbox.
