A growing number of information workers are regularly working outside of the office. Your business can’t afford to rely solely on “plain old” phone calls and emails — to stay ahead of its fast-moving competitors, your firm needs a better, more immediate way to find and connect remote and distributed teams of co-workers, suppliers, and partners.
UC deployments mean that employees can quickly locate the right resource to get to a decision faster. For example, implementing a UC solution for a sales team at an IT consultancy reduced the time it took to produce complex RFP responses by 20%, which helped the firm respond to more RFPs. UC rollouts typically: 1) reduce carrier communications expenses by 30% to 40%; 2) save 10% to 15% on trunking costs by centralizing trunking; 3) reduce infrastructure costs by using virtual machines running on standard servers; and 4) eliminate duplicative collaboration and communication software license costs.
