Cloud Voice vs. Cloud Unified Communication

Thank you Apple!

Cloud is now all the rage.

Your music, your computer back up, your messages. All in the cloud!

For anyone that had a hotmail account, you have been using the cloud for a long time. It is only the iCloud that made it cool.

But now that Cloud has become an everyday part of life for us, we are continuing to move more and more of our every day technologies into the cloud.

This has opened up the door for our various communication mediums. Most specifically our business phone systems.

Companies can now use cloud based phone systems to replace their key systems, PBX and other analog communication systems.

But Voice is no longer the entire communication for businesses.

Email, text messaging, video and presence are all part of the business experience. Small, medium and large companies all seek to communicate via multiple platforms and with instantaneous response.

This is where businesses come to realize that they don’t just seek a Cloud Voice solution, but a full unified communication platform to handle all of their communication.

The good news is that these types of solutions are widely available for businesses of all sizes.

Cloud based tools that are not only available but affordable to give businesses a tool to connect to anyone and everyone from any device.

Mobile, desktop and tabled are all expected tools as BYOD has become the expectation of businesses who want to wrap productivity into all of their favorite devices.

So if your business is looking at Cloud voice, take it one step further and look for a cloud solution that will encompass all of your communication needs.

Voice alone isn’t the answer, but it is a great start for businesses looking to focus on their operations and not on managing their phone systems.

Move beyond just cloud voice and move to cloud communications for the ultimate level of business productivity.
