The Advantages Unified Communications Offers Businesses Today

There are numerous benefits that adopting a unified communication strategy can bring about for forward-thinking Irish businesses these days. At Conversation Piece, we are ideally placed to help your enterprise enjoy all of the following advantages.

Greater Productivity

One of the most important things to say about a Unified Communications system is that it makes everything working in a much more efficient manner. As well as being able to access all of your voice communication tools from a single piece of software on your desktop, your business telephone handset and mobile device can be used seamlessly with one another. In addition, UC technology means that you can find who or what you are looking for much more rapidly than you did before. With individual systems – such as a PBX, a voicemail system and a different server providing instant messaging services – it is all too easy to get bogged down checking for information in multiple locations. With UC, everything is handled for you in just one place, thereby saving both time and effort so you and your team can concentrate or core tasks instead.

Lower Cost Than Legacy Systems

With a centralised system that handles all of your commercial requirements, you need to pay for just one set of hardware and a sole service provider. Compare that with legacy communications systems which might come from multiple suppliers and have different service contracts that renew at differing times. The comparison with a Unified Communications system is quite remarkable because it integrates much of what you are probably already running into a single technology while affording you additional features and benefits at no extra cost. By placing all of your communication channels into a unified communications system, your overall level of expenditure is bound to drop significantly. Bear in mind that such cost savings also extend to outbound call charges thanks to digital technologies such as VoIP and SIP trunk lines, to name but two.

Adaptable to Changing Business Requirements

Because much of what goes on with a UC system is run by software, it can be adapted with remarkable ease to meet changing business needs. So, for example, if you needed to reroute callers from their usual point of contact to another one temporarily, then you don’t need a skilled telephony engineer to help you. Just altering the settings in the software you are already accustomed to will be all that is needed. That’s great if a colleague is on leave unexpectedly but such flexibility can also be up-scaled when needed. Perhaps an entire office closure is pending or your usual office hours are shifted for some reason? If so, UC technology can adapt and provide clients and staff with the continuous ability to communicate over analogue or SIP trunk lines no matter what else might be going on.

Improved Functionality

UC provides all of the functionality you could ever wish for. When you have a hosted PBX running an interactive voice response (IVR) system, for example, this can be included as a part of your future UC strategy with ease. Users will benefit from all of the functions that modern telephony systems have to offer, not just some of them. These include things like call journals, conference calling, software telephone directories and call pop-ups, to name but a few. Automated attendants and response systems can improve the way messages are personalised and, what’s more, UC systems will also allow users to tailor how their uc software works, for example, by making use of ‘favourites’ so that they can always find their most frequently used features rapidly.

A Better Customer Experience

We have all been faced with a terrible customer experience when trying to contact a large organisation. Sometimes, you can wait for an age for a response only to have ended up in the wrong place to be put on hold again. Sometimes, messages are left but they never get picked up. This is what happens when legacy telephony systems remain in place. Unified Communications does away with all that by making use of IP phone solutions that bring everything together in one place. By ensuring all of your calls, messages and recordings are properly directed and that they have appropriate notifications, so all of your customers will be able to enjoy an improved customer experience when they call you.
