Unified Communication provides users with access to all kinds of communication channels from traditional email through phone to telepresence  and web conferencing using one integrated interface.

Microsoft is leveraging its market leading position in corporate mail systems and desktop applications to bring telephony and UC technologies to this space and offer customers a new connected experience.

As one of the core group of UC partners chosen by Microsoft for their UC Partner Advisory Group (PAG), Geomant brings more than 10 years of experience as a leader in voice technologies.

UC offers benefits for organizations in many ways:

  • Delivers business processes and business critical communication in a  flexible and efficient way.
  • Reduces cost of communication, travel and training.
  • Simplifies access to relevant information and to available contacts.
  • Increases control, compliance and security of corporate and organizational communication.

 

Gaining these benefits there are typical challenges and customer objections to overcome:

  • Is Microsoft Lync robust enough to replace our current telephony system?
  • Has Lync better TCO than our current telephony and video system already in place?
  • How to achieve early end user adoption and change of mind set?
  • How to use Lync to drive business critical processes to return a better ROI?
