Webinar - Lync-based UC for Better Communications
By Michelle Amodio, TMCnet Contributor
Technology has afforded many businesses some pretty useful features that make communication a lot easier. From VoIP to virtualization to IP fax, it’s a rather seamless process to get in touch with someone one way or the other. But with different technologies offerings, sometimes choosing what is right can get confusing. That’s where unified communications (UC) steps in.
UC integrates all different types of communications, including voice mail, e-mail, IP fax, instant messages, and video conferencing, and puts them into one common interface. UC can greatly increase productivity, especially in companies that rely on daily or more frequent communications with customers, partners, and vendors.
With the workspace being what it is today, a unified platform is almost a requirement for most because of its productivity boosting nature, and also the ease of access to all communication and applications with one interface.
A recent webinar highlighted this very subject. Presented by Arkadin (News - Alert) officials Dave Dolin, senior product marketing manager and Zach Katsof, North American business manager for Web and UC products, the discussion involved what a UC solution should include, how UC can save money and using Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync to easily deploy, scale and manage as a UC solution.
“The UC is going to be the piece that ties together all your communication tools,” said Dolin during the webinar.
A UC system allows for less hardware, which means less money being spent on hardware, which translates to money in the till for other, more necessary items. Unified communications using Microsoft Lync brings real-time, next-generation collaboration capabilities, including instant messaging, voice and desktop sharing.
