The Cloud is Now A Necessity


Between 2010 and 2012, the amount of businesses that have adopted cloud communications has more than doubled. That number is also expected to double by 2018 and with this exponential growth, you don’t want your business to be one of the ones that gets left in the dust.

3 reasons why you should switch to cloud communications now.

Mobility. In a recent study conducted, 77% of respondents said that a cloud communications business model enables the company to support a mobile workforce. As the business world trends more towards mobility and remote work forces, cloud communications is now a necessity. Mobility is one of cloud communications most valuable attributes. With nearly 3 million professional workers in the US working remotely or from their home, features like “mobile twinning” make distance between employees irrelevant. Unifying communications with features such as fax via email, twinning another device to ring simultaneously with your desk phone, video conferencing, voicemail to email transcription and personalized pin-codes allowing workers to use any phone in the office as their own are only a few of cloud communication’s features that support mobility for businesses.

IT Technicians look good. 72% of survey participants said that cloud communications has allowed their companies to resign their telecommunications and IT staff to more strategic tasks. When the IT department no longer has to worry about on-premise hardware that frequently fails, needs to be replaced often and is constantly needing to be upgraded, IT technicians can focus on more important tasks. Additionally, without IT departments needing to allocate extensive budget expenses towards their telecommunications system, budget can be allocated in more productive ways.

Predictable costs. 61% of survey participants said that switching to cloud communications  makes the costs associated with telecommunications predictable. There are no unexpected costs, system upgrades, replacement purchases or adding bulky hardware. Furthermore, unified communications eliminates the struggles of integrating products with multiple vendors and allows businesses to use one provider for all their communications needs rather than paying premiums to several every month.
