One of the biggest hurdles organizations face in workers returning to the office – even in a hybrid working environment – is that people have gotten comfortable with their home setup. If your unified communications (UC) and collaboration tools are cumbersome, confusing, or prone to downtime when workers come to the office, they are quickly frustrated and wondering why they decided to spend time commuting to take a meeting in a conference room that doesn’t work the way they need it to when their home office has a perfect setup. An enticing office experience that attracts employees away from their home office is just one benefit of a strategic UC deployment.
Patchwork and legacy platforms – whether a result of mergers/acquisitions from years ago or pandemic-spurned impulse purchases – are notoriously difficult to integrate and maintain. It is an extraordinary challenge for IT teams to objectively evaluate current platforms and effectively transform digital operations. A trusted partner can not only help you evaluate your current IT/AV landscape, but also help you design a migration path towards a standardized and simplified UC strategy and implementation.
