Unified Communications Drives a New Wave of Productivity and Collaboration.
Today’s workers want the same diversity and ease of communications in the workplace as they experience with their personal devices. Individual use and business communications share common traits. Both groups want to connect quickly to others and communities of interest and also share ideas and access information from anywhere, on any device. Creating a connected workforce requires companies to deliver applications that support flexible work styles and promote collaboration across departments and locations. Additionally, with workers becoming more virtual and working away from the office, sharing documents and exchanging viewpoints through video connectivity are gaining in importance. Companies need to create a new work environment, with less reliance on traditional forms of communications to support creativity and flexibility for its employees. Unified Communication (UC) applications such as video, presence and mobile device integration provide the framework to empower workers to become more productive and foster business innovation.
The workplace is changing as mixed-generation workers apply new applications to improve their ability to collaborate and communicate with co-workers, partners and customers. It is important for companies to embrace applications that improve workers’ productivity and facilitate business processes. Companies that are not moving forward with improved connectivity are essentially falling behind. Virtualization and collaboration drive the next wave of productivity.
