Working remotely has become the new normal. But are your communications systems keeping up with your people? Prior to COVID-19, chances are you had a way for your salespeople on the road and your field workers to communicate, however now we’re seeing more and more people move to home offices and their communication infrastructure just can’t sustain the business need for what we call “Unified Communications”. This is the new breed of technology that allows us to work and communicate from just about anywhere with an Internet connection.
What Is Unified Communications?
By definition, Unified Communications or UC is an evolving use of communications technology for communication between individual users in real time or non-real-time in which all available human and device-assisted forms of data-sharing are unified into a common experience.
A recent Gallup study found that 43% of Americans spend at least some of their time working away from the office. This was prior to the COVID pandemic. While remote work is bound to keep growing, there are challenges that go along with it. Technology can keep us connected from anywhere, but being away from a physical desk can make collaborating with teammates and clients more difficult.
Luckily there’s a productivity solution that will promote collaboration when you’re away from your desk and we are able to offer it to our clients with no terms or the option to receive the first month FREE. Have a look at our Unified Communications offerings here.
