Many companies were caught unprepared in the Spring of 2020 because they lacked remote communication tools within their business.
Until they were forced to work from home, remote resources and processes weren't prioritized in budgets, nor was time and resources spent on properly outfitting staff. And even if they were, many tools have a learning curve that requires a ramp-up period to solidify user adoption.

Enter Unified Communications.
Now, companies have the ability to package all of their communications needs in one place. While that feature alone should have you nodding in approval, this list will shed some light on why unified communications are so important.
