One of the biggest obstacles in any organization is communications burdened by antiquated phone systems and the often-manual process of communicating with customers, suppliers, partners and colleagues.
Frost & Sullivan believes that effective business communications, tightly integrated with core business workflows and applications, are fundamental to the success of every company. While this fact should encourage businesses to make communications the focus of their digital transformation efforts, communications solutions are often overlooked. Implementing a consolidated unified communications and collaboration solution can increase employee productivity, and when integrated with business applications employees use every day – companies can achieve the goal of digital transformation.
Join Theresa Caragol, Channel Futures contributor and CEO of AchieveUnite along with Brian Gilman, VP of Product Marketing at Vonage, as they discuss how companies can leverage UCaaS to accommodate employee and customer communications needs as part of their digital transformation journey.
You’ll specifically learn:
- What is unified communications as a service (UCaaS)
- Why companies are moving communications to the cloud
- Benefits that communications transformation will bring to businesses
- How you can build a UCaaS practice efficiently and expeditiously
