6 Advantages of a UCaaS Solution
Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) is probably a term that you have heard more and more about in the past few years. The shift to remote work – not just “locally remote” but also internationally remote and the need for virtual collaboration brought about by the pandemic are just two of the drivers for this trend. Everyone remembers their first Zoom meeting, well the world has moved on from that to UCaaS.
Before we dive in, let’s start with a definition. UCaaS is a cloud-based solutions offering that integrates communication technologies (e.g.: voice, chat, text, video, etc.) with applications, tools and other business services into a single cloud-based platform. Typically, a UCaaS solution would be delivered in a subscription model.
So why are businesses increasingly embracing unified communications and specifically UCaaS solutions? Here are 6 reasons why a UCaaS solution may be just what the doctor ordered for your business.
