Don’t just phone it in when it comes to your telephony!
Business communications today involve a lot more than just voice calls. With the rise of email communications, video conferencing, chat apps, and text, it may seem like telephones get a little lost in the noise, and don’t get updated as often as they should. This is why more and more companies are moving towards Unified Communications (UC).
Unified Communications (UC) is a term describing the integration of communications services, such as instant messaging, voice, mobility features, audio, web and video conferencing, desktop and data sharing, and more.
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telephony offers increasingly flexible deployment, to ensure a platform that works for your business. This will allow a phone system free of the expensive implementation and upgrade costs, and let you scale to your business growth with ease! Savings can also be as much as 30-40% compared to Primary Rate Interface (PRI) phones. The system is also highly portable, as you only need an internet connection and any device (mobile phone, tablet, laptop, PC) to connect.
SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) Trunking is a term you may hear a lot these days. Used with VoIP, it will support the signalling and control of voice, video, and messaging applications. When SIP is used, it can allow for immediate cost saving on business applications by allowing companies to consolidate technologies into UC. It can also provide failover to employee mobile devices if data connectivity is lost and can seamlessly integrate with cloud applications for UC implementations.
Did you know…In the 1870s, Scottish-born inventor Alexander Graham Bell did much development for the newly invented telephone. Bell’s preferred salutation, ahoy-hoy was derived from the nautical term “Ahoy” which in its turn is derived from Dutch “hoi” meaning “hi”.
