Countdown to Connect: Simplifying Cloud Communications
The great cloud migration is underway, with more organizations than ever moving their business processes to the cloud. Communications is no exception, as the market for cloud-based phone systems is growing at a rapid clip.
In fact, the global revenue from the cloud communications market will grow from $123 million in 2013 to $7.5 billion 2018, with a growth rate of 127 percent, according to IDC.
That’s why with our upcoming ShoreTel Connect CLOUD, we’ve refined our ShoreTel SKY offering to provide a powerful, flexible and feature-rich phone system. One of the great opportunities ShoreTel Connect CLOUD offers is a single platform for those businesses that have a premise-based phone system and want to take advantage of the features and flexibility of a cloud phone system. With a single platform, organizations get the same intuitive interface for both cloud, premises or a mixture of both (hybrid). Plus, this single platform provides a simple way to access all communication options, no matter if you’re using your personal smartphone, office phone, laptop or office computer
Additional benefits of a cloud-based phone system like ShoreTel Connect CLOUD include:
- Frees your IT staff to focus on other business initiatives
- Software is always the latest version and faster upgrades managed off-site
- Easier implementations and uniform deployments across remote workforce
- Subscription model offers predictable monthly spend and scales to your business needs
- Add new features without capital expense
- Faster time to implementation
Regardless of if you choose the cloud, onsite or a combination of both (hybrid), ShoreTel has you covered with ShoreTel Connect. With a single platform for cloud, onsite and hybrid phone systems, Connect extends our reputation for simplifying the way companies deploy, manage and maintain unified communications—no matter how many sites you serve.
