In the New ‘20s, Advanced Business Communication Tools Are a Must
March 10, 2020
There was a time when the plain old telephone system (POTS) was sufficient to handle the business communication needs of any company. As technology evolved and communication channels such as chat and social media became the norm, basic legacy phone systems became outdated. Customers expect a more unified experience when seeking service from your business, and your employees need systems that allow them to seamlessly collaborate wherever they are. More advanced tools such as cloud communications are now a necessity for staying competitive in the modern environment.
Your Customers Expect Modernized Communications
Let’s face it: many of your competitors are already using advanced business communication systems. Your customers are used to being able to get help via the channels they prefer. And if they reach out through a different channel the next time, the expectation is that your company is able to access communication history so that service is seamless and previous questions don’t need to be repeated.
Tools such as unified communications as a service (UCaaS) enable you to put your best customer-service face forward. Whether your customers choose to contact you via chat, phone, or social media, you’ll be able to provide high-quality service and communication that isn’t possible with POTS.
Better Business Communication = Happier, More Productive Employees
Your employees will feel more satisfied with their jobs if they’re able to successfully serve your customers. The benefits to your staff are even greater than that, though.
- Mobility. When you use advanced communication tools such as voice over internet protocol (VoIP) phone systems, your employees have the freedom to work remotely with the same voice capabilities they’d have in the office. They can receive and make calls on their devices through their business line and check voicemails from wherever they are – increasing productivity.
- Collaboration. Enhance your meetings with UCaaS features, including web, audio, video conferencing, and screen sharing. Whether your employees are collaborating internally or presenting to a client, the ability to walk through information without being physically in the same meeting room increases productivity and provides better service to clients.
