Unified Communications (UC) refers to the integration of instant messaging, VoIP, video conferencing, file sharing, and apps in one landscape. The demand for UC has increased in the last two years and will continue to see a steady rise in the future according to a UC Today report.
Businesses can either build their own UC systems or implement ready-to-deploy solutions such as Microsoft 365, Teams, and SharePoint.
If you are looking to invest in UC technology, here are some must-known facts to help you create a successful migration.
Seamless integration with an intuitive solution
A crucial factor when choosing your next UC system is to ensure ease of use by avoiding complicated features. E.g., if you decide to adopt a cloud-based UC solution, you will ensure accessibility to servers, users’ profiles, and preferences from anywhere by being all stored in the cloud. This is a massive benefit for organizations that want to deploy mobile operations, security, and disruption-resistant infrastructure.
Understand the impact of deploying UC to your business
Having the nature of your business and its requirements clear will help you choose the best UC solution that is aligned to its DNA. Deploying UC technology is a big challenge, so we recommend you relate your business objectives with different UC initiatives through case studies. BlueSky UC’s certified experts can assist you in learning the real-world impact of integrating unified communications.
Keep your long-term goals in mind
When evaluating potential UC solutions try to think of your long-term goals. For instance, the impact on your business’ communications will be immediate, nevertheless, the cost-saving impact will be visible after some time.
Having a fully talented IT team in your organization to ensure the heavily invested technology is up to date could not always be the best decision. By considering having a third-party provider who takes care of the planning, implementation, and maintenance of your unified communications, you and your employees will be able to focus on the most important and strategic decisions of your business, instead of investing valuable hours in ensuring the technology is operational all the time.
