Together – Unified Communications & Collaboration Will Transform The Way We Communicate
Unified Communication focuses on the combination of hardware, software and services with an end-goal of increasing the ability to communicate across various devices, applications and locations. Collaboration solutions unite groups and teams of people that are physically spread out by improving the ability to share knowledge and improve business processes. They are both working toward the same goal: improving the ability to effectively communicate among companies and co-workers. Together, they will transform the way we communicate.
Enter the brave new world of Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC), where tools, technologies, and services let any size company communicate more effectively. UCC represents a new direction in business in order to simplify and integrate all forms of communications and collaboration within an organization. It is not a repackaging or renaming of existing technologies, even though the existing technologies play into it. Rather, UCC is a new way of thinking about combining existing technologies to help organizations achieve their business goals through improved communications.
