A Unified Communications solution can transform the way your organisation ultimately communicates, improving both business efficiency and productivity by leveraging technology to deliver enhanced communications. From more efficient collaboration tools, integration with key workforce apps and multiple methods of communicating, Unified Communications provides the tools to respond quickly.
Our Unified Communications portfolio offers a range of Cloud, hosted and on-premise solutions for both the office-based and mobile user: not necessarily a single product but a collection of features that provides a consistent, real-time point of contact across multiple devices.
A Unified Communications solution can be made up of communication services such as instant messaging, presence, voice, mobility features (e.g. single number reach), web and video conferencing, fixed-mobile convergence (FMC), desktop sharing and unified messaging.
Unified Communications converges business communications, giving users control over how they communicate and collaborate with others. Whether you are a mobile worker needing the full business communication ability while out of the office, a mobile sales person wanting to contact an available work colleague for a quick answer via an IM session, or needing to collaborate in real time on documentation with geographically distributed team members, Unified Communications can help deliver.
