Does a Hosted Offering Make Sense for Your Business?
Tuesday June 29, 2010 TIME: 2:00pm ET 11:00am PT

So much technology is making a migration to the cloud – CRM applications, email, storage, etc. Now IP business communications is following the cloud-based trend for many of the same reasons. In this webinar, we’ll explore the value of getting your communications and contact center solutions served to you as a hosted offering. We’ll also examine the tradeoffs between a hosted model and a premise-based deployment, the available options for various hosted deployment models, the primary considerations when selecting a hosted communications provider, and the way to determine if a cloud-based model is a good fit for your business. If you are considering a replacement or upgrade to your existing communications or contact center system, this webinar will provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision regarding a hosted offering. All webinar registrants will receive a complimentary copy of the white paper titled, “Hosted Contact Center Solutions – Setting the Record Straight,” authored by DMG Consulting.

Be sure to bring your questions, the webcast will be open for live Q&A after the presentation.
