Cloud Communications Vendors
What is UCaaS?
Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) is a solution that allows businesses to utilise a wide range of hosted programmes such as video conferencing, instant messaging, email, file sharing and various other collaboration tools over the Internet at any time and from any location with web access.
At present, many businesses are choosing to migrate towards cloud-based UC solutions for the numeral benefits they off, whist a recent growth report named UCaaS as a high-potential emerging technology that is predicted to expand at a remarkable CAGR of 23.4% from 2014 to 2022.
With this a UCaaS solution, businesses benefit from a service that provides all of the latest software and security updates, gives round the clock access to said services from any location with web access and allows users to collaborate whenever they wish both in and out of the office.
In an age where 77% of workers report greater productivity while working offsite and 52% claim they are less likely to take time off from sickness if able to work from home, it truly pays for businesses to invest in a solution that allows people to work and collaborate outside of the office walls.
