Unified comms and collaborations

With businesses increasingly needing to be flexible, agile and fast to react, one of the most important investments in technology you can make is unified comms and collaborations.

With the economic climate still testing for many organisations across various sectors despite recent green shoots of recovery, firms need to make sure they are doing all they they can to get an edge on their rivals.


By embracing unified communications and collaboration, you will be able to merge all of your communications into a single, manageable interface. This has the impact of simplifying the way you share information, which in turn also helps improve collaboration within your organisation, as well as collaboration with customers, partners and suppliers.

Here at FirstNet Direct we have all the knowledge and expertise you could ask for. We can give you all the information you require to make an informed decision about whether or not unified communications is for you – and if you decide it is then we can help get you up and running.

Benefits of unified comms

Flexibility is one of the key reasons businesses are increasingly making an investment in unified comms. Technology has made the world smaller than ever and members of staff need to be able to work on the go, meaning they have to get the chance to access information even if they are out of the office.

Unified comms means that they can receive messages through a wide range of mediums, meaning they can always be kept in the loop and informed of what’s going on.

This in turn increases the efficiency of a business as it means information flows more freely throughout the organisation, helping workflows to be managed more closely.

Greater responsiveness is another of the key advantages of unified communications. By allowing your employees to pick up messages through different mediums, they can become more efficient and effective at their jobs, therefore boosting the bottom line of the company.

Mobility advantages

The key benefit of unified communications and collaborations, however, is arguably mobility. With workers increasingly needing to be able to do their jobs from home or even while on the go, it is vital employers can keep in touch with staff members at all times.

Flexible working is a trend that is undoubtedly here to stay and this can help all types of people, especially parents who need to be able to look after their children and juggle their job.

There are also environmental benefits that companies can make the most of – as embracing unified communications means they will cut down on the need for employee travel, reducing the amount of money and time being wasted, as well as slashing the organisation’s carbon footprint.

With green issues becoming increasingly important to members of the public, it cannot be underestimated just how important doing your bit for the environment and to save the planet is.

Can unified communications work for me?

Although it may seem like a major shift to move to a unified communications model, most businesses find the upheaval is actually minimal and they can get up and running very quickly with the minimum of fuss.

You’ll see the benefits virtually straight away and the beauty of unified communications is that the difference will be immediately noticeable as your business becomes more flexible and agile, with workers able to keep up with information and their tasks more quickly than ever before.
