With its expansive coverage and broad offerings, unified communications (UC) finds a natural home with enterprise-level businesses that need to connect global operations and thousands of employees working remotely. Rather than relying on multiple disparate services, a UC platform integrates voice, messaging, collaboration, and other features in a single integrated business communications solution.
As small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB) continue to compete with larger enterprises, any tool you can use that evens the playing field or provides a competitive advantage is worth evaluating. A cloud-based communications solution is accessible from any device with internet connectivity. When you have employees working remotely out of home offices or using co-working spaces, retain your competitive edge with an enterprise-grade, cloud-based communications solution that makes your business appear much larger.
