How unified communications and collaboration can solve your biggest challenges in enterprise communication.
Challenge #1: Multiple devices and applications are working in silos in enterprise communications.
From desk phones, softphones, instant messengers to your own mobile phone. All communications are fragmented and you are required to create multiple accounts, and remembering multiple passwords. There are days whereby you are busy recovering the forgotten password to your collaboration tools and disrupt your work.
Unified communications and collaboration provide you with access to all the communications channels you need in one place. From phone calls, instant messaging, work collaboration and video conference. This provides convenience for you and your team to use the tools and functions they need without getting bogged down by remembering tons of logins credentials.
Challenge #2: Maintaining multiple devices bring forth another set of challenges for your IT department – Security.
Having multiple devices and keeping them constantly secured requires tedious setup, accounts provisioned, and training in how to use every new application. Sensitive enterprise data is at risk whenever you and your team transfer, upload and download data via new communication apps that are not reviewed by your IT guys.
Unified communications and collaboration can help your IT department control. They can create user accounts from one central location, and only need to provide training for employees to use one set of apps, with a consistent user interface. Most importantly, your IT department can enjoy a peace of mind and need not worry about employees communicating and sharing data on unsecured channels.
Challenge #3: Conference calls – The UX nightmare
