The Unified Communications as a Service industry is growing at breakneck speed, with some estimating more than double the industry size by the year 2018.
Impressive numbers, but there are still some who have reservations about moving to a hosted unified communications experience. Here, we explain four of the reasons a switch to UCaaS may be the right choice for your business:
Cash Flow: One of the key benefits for businesses investing in a new UCaaS system is the reduction of your upfront investment. Because Unified Communications as a Service acts as a subscription-type service paid for monthly, the upfront costs typically associated with premise-based unified communications are reduced, sometimes dramatically so. This can help alleviate some of the strain of investing in a new system and free up crucial funds to be used elsewhere in your business.
Flexibility: Flexibility is the name of the game with UCaaS. Cloud VoIP and hosted unified communications make it easy to add or remove services and users, quickly and easily. Unified communications as a service makes managing your account quick and easy, too.
Strategic Communications: By freeing up internal IT resources as well as cash within the company, unified communications as a service can be a crucial aspect of strategic business communications that fit into your larger business success strategies. Unified communications offers more than simply telephone services; those ready to take advantage of these benefits and use them together with their other business tactics can reap real rewards.
Security: When your business has a hosted, managed unified communications system installed, you get the added security of knowing that you have a vendor who is responsible for the well being of your account. They are responsible for system monitoring and maintenance, and will provide system upgrades and training on an ongoing basis, making sure you and your employees get the very most out of your system.
