What are “cloud communications?”
Cloud communications are internet-based voice and data communications tools for businesses to manage applications, storage, and switching—all hosted by a third party on the cloud.
Businesses can outsource systems management responsibilities like switching, provisioning, and data storage and security to cloud communications providers.
This does more than simply reduce costs (although this is a huge plus!). It also delivers advanced features and functionality that enable employees to communicate and collaborate in ways—and places—they never thought possible.
What is “UCaaS”?
Unified communications as a service (UCaaS) provides a cloud-based business communications system across multiple channels and devices. UCaaS combines phone service, video conferencing, team messaging, SMS, fax, and other communications tools on a single integrated cloud platform. It’s designed to be accessed from any device—desktop, smartphone, or tablet.
Basically, it puts all your business communication channels in one place, which can reap serious benefits. More on that later. – Read more
