Unified communications has quickly become one of the hottest items in the corporate board room, as more organizations work to maximize the interoperability of their systems, reduce expenditures and drive collaboration to new heights. However, without the right knowledge and support, UC can be an extremely difficult strategy to optimize and perfect, which is why all small business owners should work to become more comfortable with the management demands of this trend.
Computing recently published a new online seminar that is available to the public and hosted by a panel of experts, including the publication's own research editor John Leonard and chair Stuart Sumner. According to the news provider, the goal of the webinar is to highlight some of the best practices and procedures of UC implementation and management in hopes of enlightening a broader range of business decision-makers.
The source affirmed that recent studies conducted by Infonetics Research have projected the global UC market to reach a total annual revenue value of $88 billion in the next four years, and that this should indicate that the technology might represent the next generation of corporate collaboration.
In the webinar, the panel discusses everything from bandwidth and network challenges to general management of communications between employees through the various devices involved in UC. All are welcome to listen to this seminar, and Computing added that those individuals interested in handling user preferences and requirements might be especially drawn to this discussion.
From Voice over Internet Protocol business phone services to video conferencing and instant messaging, the average organization is filled with new tools that can significantly improve collaboration among employees. With the right level of knowledge in the management demands of these solutions, small businesses can strengthen their operational efficiency and productivity.
