What is the most essential part of running a successful business? Communication of course! As cloud applications become more and more popular in large and small businesses, business communications are moving to the cloud.
So how does Unified Communication (UC) come into play? It provides integration of real-time, enterprise communication services such as voice, instant messaging, web & video conferencing, mobility features, audio, desktop sharing, data sharing, and so much more. UC provides a consistent, unified user-interface and user-experience across multiple devices and media-types.
- Team Collaboration is a Time Saver
Workers spend an average time of one hour per day communicating via email, meetings, leaving voice mail, etc. What could save some of that valuable time? Cloud-based team collaboration software, such as Mitel Team Collaboration Software allows you to stop checking multiple messaging applications because all messages can be corralled into a single app and screen.
- Improve Team Collaboration and Communications with BYOD
The Find Me/Follow Me feature allows you to be able to reach colleagues right away. A good collaboration experience is one that employees can take work with them so that projects can get done anywhere, anytime, over any device. Today’s workers need to access critical, and often sensitive, business information from wherever they’re working: at home, at a client site, on the road, etc. Cloud-based communications allow employees to quickly locate and retrieve information in real time from any device—and not just when they’re back in the office at their computer. That means customers can get answers faster, and stay happier longer.
In case you didn’t know, BYOD is expanding in popularity due to a rise in millennials in the workforce. When your business leverages BYOD policies you can utilize business collaboration apps that help your company become more productive, efficient, and collaborative. BYOD helps optimize your business as well, since you can do more with less. Employees only need a single device that they can use for personal and work purposes.
ACS believes that a good rule of thumb is, no matter your size, no matter the industry, the key is to adopt an agile communications and collaboration system that empowers your workforce to operate, create and innovate with seamless flexibility and total mobility.
