COMMUNICATING FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IS ACHIEVABLE
Whether your employees are venturing to conferences or you need to communicate with clients abroad, you need to achieve a high-quality experience. As anyone who’s ever placed a call abroad will already know, the fees can be extortionate. Fortunately, VoIP can help you overcome that.
According to some statistics, VoIP can help you save up to 40% on your overall calling costs. Using VoIP telephony that’s based in the cloud, you make it possible for your employees and clients to communicate from anywhere. Whether your brand currently has an international presence or not, VoIP gives you the option to expand abroad, and you might save some money along the way.
BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD) POLICIES BECOME WORKABLE
Just a decade ago, the idea of employees providing their own equipment was unfathomable. Today, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies are becoming increasingly viable. Around 59% of workplaces allow a BYOD policy, and when you explore the benefits, it’s easy to see why. In addition to reducing your overheads, you make it easier for people to work from anywhere.
Turning to unified communications allows you to overcome some of the challenges that BYOD introduces. For example, when your employees need to contact one another, allowing them to do so using a number of disparate apps simply isn’t productive. Messages can get lost, and those who are not using certain apps are shut out from important conversations. With unified communications, you can introduce BYOD and ensure everything runs smoothly.
ROUNDING UP DISCUSSIONS AFTER MEETINGS IS ACHIEVABLE
It’s rarely the case that discussions taking place in a meeting end as soon as the boardroom door closes. Instead, your team is likely to stumble upon ideas afterward. When there’s no way for employees to communicate those ideas or schedule further discussions, it’s difficult to achieve any progress.
Using apps that integrate with unified communications makes post-meeting discussions easier. For example, you can use Office 365 to create new schedules and share files. The messaging app you rely on can be used to float new thoughts. You can also designate tasks and watch team members complete them in real-time, which makes it easier for you to stay organized. When everyone is communicating and scheduling from the same apps, nobody is out of the loop.
