UC Buyers Guide Outlines Requirements for Successful Deployment
Unified Communications (UC) solutions are attracting a rapidly growing number of businesses, drawn by the benefits UC offers by being able to bring VoIP telephony, instant messaging, mobility, presence, and collaboration capabilities into a seamless business environment. But all UC solutions are not the same, coming as they do with varying costs and with differing technologies.
A new ShoreTel White Paper, targeted at prospective buyers, outlines the essentials that a UC solution should offer to enable an organization to use UC as a strategic part of its operations.
Titled “Unified Communications Buyers Guide: The Top Ten Requirements for a UC Solution,” the guide outlines communications and management features, collaboration and security considerations, BYOD support, viritualiztion, cloud options, scalabilty, reliability, and the importance of TCO.
In addtion, the white paper, by Larry Hettick, editorial director and senior research fellow at Webtorials, looks at how ShoreTel stacks up against the UC buyer guide requirements, and a case study featuring the deployment of a ShoreTel UC system by St. Louis, Mo. manufacturer idX.
For CIOs considering UC options, the white paper is a valuable resource.
