Today's Reality

The Need for Unified Communications

The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020/2021 has forced half of today’s workforce to work remotely. Companies need a way that allows workers to communicate and collaborate without being tied to a specific device or location. Consequently, collaborative tools, such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams, are gaining popularity because of the flexibility this form of communication and collaboration offers. The term “Unified Communication” or “UC” describes how we connect different communication systems and collaboration tools seamlessly.

The Smart way to deliver Unified Communications

What Is Unified Communications as a Service?

According to industry analysts Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for UCaaS, the concepts of Unified Communications and UCaaS are similar in the features that they offer. However, they differ in one critical way; UCaaS is hosted by your service provider over an IP network, mainly the Internet. That means that you do not have to set up your own infrastructure to get started.  Microsoft is “recognized by Gartner as a Leader for both Meeting Solutions and Unified Communications as a Service in their latest Magic Quadrants.”

We have partnered with Microsoft to bring you ProvTel Cloud Voice – your business’s new all-in-one communication and collaboration tool.
