Unified Communications by Tom Collins

You've got your mobile phone. You've got a phone on your desk. Do you need both? Not anymore! For many, desk phones are over. Starting now, you can get all the benefits of your desk phone natively on your mobile phone. And even better, it's surprisingly easy to make the switch. The switch even offers benefits like cost savings, negating the need for separate personal and business mobile devices which results in happier employees.  Best of all, your business controls all of your company’s communications.

Making the switch to a mobile-only workplace makes sense for many businesses. After all, we always have our smartphone on us.

89% of Americans keep their smartphone within reach 24-7.

On average, we unlock our phones 150 times a day, or once every 6 minutes when we’re awake. Personal smartphones are a force of habit at this point.

Unified Communications by Tom Collins

How do you know?

You could be ghosting your customers without even realizing it.

At the end of 30 days, they had received thousands of texts from their customers and were unable to receive them, let alone reply to them. They were effectively ignoring thousands of potential customers.

If you’re not receiving texts on your business line in 2020, the question should be, "what are you doing?"
