Common Mistakes Leaders Make When Deploying UC (and How to Avoid Them)

According to Enterprise Management 360, more than half of existing companies plan to move to Unified Communications as a Service in the near future. Moving their communications to a hosted or cloud-based platform gives businesses several advantages, from financial to technological. This decision is being made by companies of all sizes across all verticals.

With as many deployments taking place as have in the past years, there are some common mistakes that can be made, and we will advise you on how to avoid the big ones.

CounterPath: The Biggest Threats to VoIP Providers in 2020 – Part 1

If you were to ask a hosted VoIP/ITSP what the biggest threat to their business is in 2020 you would probably see some common answers:

  • Large carriers that spend ridiculous money on marketing
  • Increasing customer churn
  • Being viewed more like a commodity than a valued service

And to be fair, those are all very valid and trends we have seen for a few years now. But they pale in comparison to the sleeping giant that many VoIP providers are only just now realizing has had prolonged exposure to much of their customer base.

How UCaaS Leads to Better Customer Service

The features in this new technology can also be used to provide better customer service.

Get to the right person faster – Automated call distribution services, such as auto attendants, hunt groups, and call queues allow your callers to reach the right department that can answer their question, but direct dialed numbers can empower repeat callers to reach the intended person immediately.

With one brand cloud service and room terminals, all needs of full scenarios in video meetings can be perfectly matched by Yealink Meeting all-in-one solution, which helps to soar your business with intelligent and affordable meeting experience.

Huge Telecom: Bye-bye DSL. Bye-bye phone line?

This year has undoubtedly been one of change, with the impact of one microscopically small thing causing changes in who we can see, what we can do and where we can go, not to mention how and where we can work. With all this upheaval, it’s not surprising many have been left grasping for any kind of stability.

To make things worse, with Telkom’s retirement of copper-based digital subscriber line (DSL) technology, customers will be faced with yet more change — in this instance, a change in how they get their data that will cause a change in how they must get voice.
