What is Unified Communications?
UCaaS (Unified Communication as a Service) is a solution that combines corporate telephony, virtual meetings, instant messaging (business chat) and call center into a single application.
The success of your business depends on your communication: both external (with your customers and suppliers) and internal (good collaboration between your employees). Fragmented and disconnected business communication creates tension, costs, and lost opportunities. The ideal solution is to use unified communications.
Our service is easy to integrate with your current software, such as Microsoft Teams, CRM systems and Power Bi, and will give you a competitive advantage in just a few clicks.
Traditional communication solutions can take weeks to install and configure and can isolate your PBX, CRM/ERP and collaboration tools from each other.
Our service unifies your telephony, call center and collaboration tools and adapts to your operational and budgetary needs. Our platform's easy-to-use interface eliminates the need for outside help to make changes. You can manage your own telephony platform or add users in seconds.
In addition to your desktop IP phone, our apps (Windows, Mac, Android, iOS) allow you to manage your communication intuitively on all your devices (PC, Smartphone or Tablet).
More features for more efficiency
As an administrator you can manage users, call flows, statistics, etc. through a single portal. You can also allocate the different licenses (telephony, call center, call recording, etc.) according to the specific needs of each user to optimize your costs.
Your colleagues collaborate via telephony, chat and virtual meeting rooms. Each person's profile (available, online, in a meeting, on leave, etc.) is visible and defines how they can be reached (e.g., automatic switch to voicemail or to a colleague if they have a meeting in their Google/Microsoft calendar).
As for your customers, their calls are always handled so that they reach the right person in the most efficient way.
By integrating our Unified Communications platform with your business software (CRM/ERP/Ticketing), you improve the efficiency of your employees and allow them to focus on the customer instead of switching between tools. Get the information and phone features you need in your business software, while saving valuable time and minimizing distractions.
