5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Unified Communications Provider

by on Nov.11, 2014, under Uncategorized


Considering a new unified communications (UC) provider? Check out our latest article featured in the November Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce newsletter! We lay out the top five things you need to consider when selecting a UC provider to move your business forward.
Read the article below:
A unified communications provider allows your company to use one provider to meet all of your communication needs. It’s an end-to-end solution that affords you many benefits including a secure network, remote access to devices, as well as a cost savings. In fact, Cloud based unified communication services can save a company as much as 40% over traditional premise-based systems, but before you decide on a provider, you will want to be sure that they score well in the following five areas.
#1 Simplicity/One Point of Contact
One issue many companies deal with is having several service providers for their communications. Hosted communications should be simple for IT departments to manage by consolidating communications (voice, audio/videoconferencing, email, mobility, Internet services), training and tech support under one partner, on one bill. It’s important to partner with a provider that offers an end-to-end solution all under one roof.
#2 Security
Security is a top priority, especially in regulated industries such as finance and healthcare where information and communications must meet high standards of security. Companies should choose a hosted service provider with a secure network that protects voice and data communications to meet the highest industry standards and an enterprise’s own security policies. As part of that security, hosted providers should also have a disaster recovery strategy in place to ensure 99.999% of availability, even in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. A fully-mirrored Network Operations Center ensures that your communications network will stay up and running when attacked, as well as making certain business continuity and the ability to quickly deal with disaster recovery is possible. This architecture should allow for complete mobility, so your staff can connect to their phones and desktops as well as conferencing from virtually anywhere in the world.
Finally, as your company grows, your unified communications provider should provide scalable solutions to allow you to quickly and seamlessly add new employees and locations onto the network.
