Why do you need it?

Unified communications offers organizations a cohesive system of communication. It enables employees to better connect with one another, remote offices, and customers, while giving management a better understanding of communication expenditures. Unified communications as a hosted, managed or usage-based solution delivers the added bonus of provider-supported maintenance, customer care, and technical support.

Some companies are hesitant to move to the cloud and prefer to keep solutions on-prem for several reasons, including security, data and disaster recovery, and business continuity

With Unified Communications as a service, as with all cloud-based solutions, the provider takes on the task of updating software. With UCaaS, your internal IT team does not have to manage time consuming updates or security patches. As in-house systems reach end of life, cloud-based solutions adapt with better and more enforced security and privacy policies. In the event of a disaster, UCaaS allows employees to stay in touch with whatever devices are available. Disaster Recovery is often one of the biggest reasons to look at a cloud UC solution.

The Bottom line

There is no denying the importance of communication convergence. Many businesses are transitioning to cost efficient, end-to-end, single provider solutions and overall, less vendors to manage.
