The Adoption Curve: Top-10 Characteristics of Pervasive Adoption of Audio / Video Conferencing & Collaboration
10/14/2014 10:27:49 AM
Audio Conferencing, Video Conferencing, and Collaboration are three real-time communication technologies that have the power to transform a business and deliver enhanced outcomes – IF the business truly adopts the new capabilities they provide.
Audio Conferencing, the eldest of these technologies, brings people together in a personal way with voice. Video Conferencing is about delivering a richer communication experience by enabling participants to see each other and interact visually. Collaboration is about providing teams with a working environment that’s rich in supporting information – including documentation, spreadsheets, desktop applications, web-based resources, and sometimes integrated voice and video.
These are all powerful capabilities – but if adoption fails to take place, even the best audio / video conferencing and collaboration products will fail to deliver a return on investment.
This white paper examines ten characteristics held in common by companies where usage of these solutions has become pervasive, outlining the Adoption Curve that describes the most common path to success with new real-time communication technologies.
The Journey to Workforce Optimization (WFO)
10/14/2014 10:25:38 AM
What factors determine whether a contact-center interaction produces a positive outcome? Often it’s the agent that makes the difference, but this doesn't tell the whole story. How was the "right agent" trained? Why was the call routed to that employee? What business systems supported the interaction?
To ensure the quality of every customer interaction, contact-center managers need a business system – a repeatable approach. Workforce Optimization (WFO) is a management practice designed to improve outcomes in contact-center and back-office communication environments. WFO solutions incorporate some combination of call recording, quality assurance, workforce management, e-learning and analytics.
This white paper illustrates the power of WFO capabilities, and the importance of effective roadmap planning and developing a realistic path for getting there.
Getting started with Microsoft Lync

Companies contemplating a Microsoft Lync implementation need good advice - strategic guidance on how the extensive suite of Lync capabilities can support their unique business model and needs. Lync can provide a very broad range of capabilities, from simple IM and presence to full-blown audio and video conferencing capabilities, web conferencing and more.

Like many business decisions facing IT professionals, it's an in-house or out-source, "buy or build" choice: recruit and train employees to bring this specialty on staff, or partner with some combination of vendors, service providers, and system integrators.
This white paper provides recommended steps to a successful Lync implementation — planning ahead, use cases, licensing, training and network readiness.
