What Exactly Is Business Unified Communications?

Business unified communications brings together all your communication equipment, software and services into a seamless solution for your business. The all-in-one workspace integrates your voice, fax, video, voicemail, content sharing and messaging solutions to work together in real time and from any location all from one platform. Staying at the forefront of new technologies, vendors and opportunities as they emerge is core to any unified communications solution. When implemented correctly, unified communications can reduce costs, improve user experience, improve mobility and allow for endless growth and evolution. Unified communications excels at improving productivity among your team as well as enhancing collaboration among remote and hybrid employees.

Here are five features that make business unified communications a great choice. 

1. Access to Mobility

All employees and team members can stay connected no matter their location. Elevate your hybrid workplace by giving employees comprehensive mobile access to communication tools and platforms.

2. Message Unification 

Employees have access to multiple message types in the same place, using one single tool. Easily switch between communication modes based on what you need. 

3. Simple Conferencing

Make it possible for employees or customers outside your organization to meet, connect and do business via video or audio from separate locations. 

4. Online Fax Support

Faxing is made simple with unified communications. Faxes are received as email attachments, making them accessible from smartphones and desktops. 

How a Telecommunications Provider Can Benefit Your Business

Now that you know some of the key features of unified communications, you may be wondering how unified communications can benefit you. Here are five ways unified communications can help your business. 

1. Increased Productivity

Eliminate any bottleneck that is slowing your business’s workflow. Unified Communications makes certain tasks easier for employees increasing your businesses operational efficiency including:

  • Quicker file sharing that clears up email clutter.
  • The ability to receive calls from anywhere.
  • Receiving voicemails and faxes directly to your email.
  • Simple one-click video meetings for urgency.

Streamlining these tasks makes it possible for your team to get more done in a single day and eliminates communication issues. 

2. Reduced Costs

In-house communication tools often cost you more than they should. Unified communications relies on the internet for all aspects, turning your phone system into a voice over internet protocol (VoIP) system and integrates it with the rest of your tools. This subtracts the need for on-site hardware and servers. 

Unified communications also simplifies the process of adding users, so you don’t have to request a service call every time you want to add a new user. 

Lastly, the cost of the service is the same every month, with no surprises. 

3. Elevated Customer Service

An incredible customer experience equates to your business being more successful. It is a vital part of your business. The all-in-one workspace integrates business communication tools used everyday in a feature-rich collaboration suite, including online meetings, conference calls, chat, messaging, fax, voicemail, content sharing and more. It also seamlessly integrates with many apps you already use including G Suite and Salesforce. Your workforce will be empowered to easily connect with customers, access their information easily, and resolve issues quickly, providing a greater personalized customer experience from any device, from any location.

4. Strengthened Remote Workforce

Thanks to unified communications, your remote team or teams at multiple locations will all be connected and feel like a part of the team. They’ll have all the tools and information they need to work efficiently and all they’ll need is a stable internet connection. 

5. Enhanced Security

Cyber security is vital to every business. Unified communications strengthens security by integrating tools into a single platform. This way everything is straightforward for an IT team if or when they need to apply specific security protocols and policies across all of your applications. It also makes it easier for them to manage and update your security.
