How to enhance your Unified Communications ROI

Written by Martin Borowski, Posted in Unified Communications

One of the best ways to enhance your ROI is invest in Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C).  UC&C allows for existing technologies to easily merge with new technologies to connect people and companies at amazing volumes and speed. Companies are under constant pressure to perform often with little to non-existent budgets. With UC&C deployment, companies can implement effective collaboration to create a competitive advantage and align IT staff across the organization – thereby enhancing ROI. There are several ways to implement UC&C therefore it’s important for companies to align it with their business model. For consideration are questions like whether to purchase an entire UC&C solution or deploy a fully hosted service. Also, hybrid models are now very popular where companies can have both options merge which may suit their needs best.

Unified communications and the contact centre

Written by Martin Borowski, Posted in Contact Center, Lync, Unified Communications

As unified communications and collaboration (UCC) become staples in contact centers, technologies such as VoIP, video, web chat, email and calendars have become more common in the workplace.  Increasingly tech savvy employees, as well as customers - who have grown up using these technologies - have helped the market for UCC to grow and mature quickly.

UCC tools have evolved how businesses and contact centers operate.  The technology and tools give managers and staff a ‘birds eye’ view of all the experts within an organization, indicating their availability and preferred medium for contact at any given time.  If an expert is away from the bricks and mortar location, a contact center worker can quickly discover their availability and how best to contact them to get an immediate answer; employees simply have to maintain their status and preferred method of contact via a standard interface, such as Outlook.

Essentially, UCC technology and multimedia tools enable staff to best manage customer interactions and provide quick, satisfactory resolutions.

Increase employee productivity with UC

Written by Martin Borowski, Posted in Unified Communications

There's little doubt at this point that Unified Communications (UC) technology reduces expenses while improving services.  Often overlooked, though, is the dramatic improvement in employee productivity, which adds up to significant additional savings in time and operating costs.  Case in point - by unifying message delivery and retrieval, Collaborative technologies can save an astounding 40 minutes a day per employee by simply allowing staff to retrieve messages in one place as opposed to having to navigate several different systems.

Integrating mobile devices with UC adds another easy boost of 30 minutes per day, and giving workers instant access to systems and coworkers shaves off another 30 minutes right there.  By reducing down-time and traditionally repetitive or redundant tasks, employees improve critical real-time performance.  And all that saved time and energy can now be directed to other tasks and processes within the organization.

Unified Communications – What is UC and is it really worth it?

Written by Martin Borowski, Posted in Lync, Unified Communications, ComputerTalk, Microsoft

Working from anywhere, using any device at any time, efficiently and effectively is what Unified Communications (UC) is all about.

UC comes in the form of various bundles of services, from Presence and IM, to Email, to Conferencing and Collaboration, MPLS and Voice telephony. And all these smoothly intertwined with business processes of the company.

It comes with so many advantages to simplify the business but most importantly it saves a ton of time. Time – one incredibly valuable commodity with limited supply.

UC will save time on checking company directory, prevent calls to colleagues that are busy in this instance an not able to answer the call anyway and inform when is the actual best time to connect.

Unified Messaging is one neat example of UC. All emails, voicemail, text and fax come into a single inbox. And those voicemails are transcribed into text so no more time wasted dialing into the mailbox, typing the password, dialing to hear new message, waiting for the prompt…etc.

UC enables employees to be more productive for longer periods of time as information is sorted and timely.

The best part is the ability for the customer to try Unified Communications at a comfortable pace and test variety of options available without the pressure of full immediate integration.

ComputerTalk's ice product provides all the Unified Communications you need on a simple all-in-one platform; phone, email, instant messaging, social media (Facebook and Twitter), video, webchat, and Skype. Learn more about ice contact center.
