The benefits of unified communications as a service, or hosted UC, go above and beyond shifting costs from a capital expense – CAPEX – to a predictable monthly operating expense – OPEX. This infographic illustrates 7 reasons to consider a hosted UC solution.
1. Business Agility
Speedy deployment and upgrades in the cloud without interrupting day to day operations.
2. Increased Efficiency
Reduce the risk of technology obsolescence while removing the need to support and maintain on-premises infrastructure.
3. Increased Reliability
Resilient data centers with multi-site backup combined with 24/7 security and system monitoring.
4. Disaster Recovery
Mirrored servers in multiple regions (geo-redundancy) means communications and data are restored with internet access – laptop, tablet, even your smartphone.
5. Mobility Integration
BYOD? Not a problem. Access your unified communications services with any device, from any location with internet access.
6. Improved Collaboration Capabilities
Voice and video conferencing, real-time document sharing, presence – all collaboration tools to enhance productivity no matter your people’s locations.
7. Flexibility & Customization
Add cloud services and custom features as needed or as they become available. Expand or contract the number of users to meet business demands.
These are just seven of the reasons more businesses, organizations and enterprises are looking to the cloud for their next step in unified communications and collaboration technologies.
