Unified Communications for the SME
At last the SME is getting to grips on what unified communications is and how it can help its business – and at last there are simple, easy to understand and use solutions.
We think the reasons UC is gaining a wider use base is because vendors and their channels are focussing more on business outcomes than lists of features.
For this article we will be looking in particular at:
– What are the real life drivers for UC in the SME sector?
– What business outcomes are the hot buttons to press for SMEs?
– Digital transformation at the SME level can be a complex sell but how can this be overcome by resellers?
– Are cloud based UCaaS delivery options starting to dominate the SME market?
