What to look for in your Unified Communications Reseller
Unified Communications. A buzzword that’s thrown into almost any conversation that has anything to do with phone systems, PBXs, video conferencing, chat etc. But what is it? And can it help your business?
According to Gartner unified communications is defined as products (hardware, software and services) that enable and facilitate the interactive use of multiple enterprise communications methods. This can include control, management and integration. UC solutions integrate communications channels (media), networks and systems (I.e., CRM), as well as IT business applications and, consumer applications and devices.
Based on the above one can easily say that Unified Communications are a must-have for any modern business who wishes to grow and communicate effectively between teams, stakeholders and customers.
The importance of Unified Communications became even more apparent during the peak of the Covid pandemic where businesses were forced to close shop and provide their employees with the tools to work remotely and the means to communicate efficiently and effectively with customers and colleagues. The number of online meetings that were conducted during this period were unprecedented. – and businesses had to ensure they could keep up.
If a business could not accommodate the increased need for any form of digital communication, they almost certainly felt the consequences. And this need for unified communications is not going anywhere anytime soon. Therefore, you might as well invest in a solution sooner rather than later.

Upon acceptance, they are expected to pass the 3 certification levels to prove that they can deploy, manage, maintain and troubleshoot the system. And their learning doesn’t end there.
