If you’re an executive, your job is to execute: to get things done so that your business can succeed and grow. Unified communications is a game-changer for executives because it supports true mobility – allowing you to get more done, no matter where you are.
Here are two key advantages of the high level of mobility made possible by unified communications:
- Mobility means you’re always there for your clients.
UC gives you fully integrated communications tools wherever you go, in a way that is hassle-free for you and creates a seamless experience for your clients.
Recently, a client was trying to reach me at 6:30 p.m. I was at home, but the client was able to connect with me via IM on my cell phone, which is loaded with Microsoft OS and fully integrated into our unified communications set-up.
I took 5 minutes to answer the client’s question. The client was happy, and I went back to what I was doing. This is a simple but powerful example of how unified communications makes my job easier – and my clients happier.
- Mobility lets you make the most of time on the road.
When I’m at the airport, stuck in that dreaded no-man’s land between check-in and take-off, unified communications allows me use my time productively. Sure, everyone tries to work when they’re traveling – but let’s face it, you can only do so much when you’re cobbling together your communications.
With UC, all my communications functions and devices are fully integrated. I can answer my work phone from my laptop. I can see and prioritize my voicemails in my email inbox. I can have an impromptu video conference with my team to handle a problem, make a decision, or pursue an opportunity.
Whether you’re at home or on the road, unified communications allows you to communicate with clients and colleagues just like you would from your office. That’s the power of true mobility.
