Bring the Advantages of Cloud Communications to Your Business

Sep 2016

The march toward cloud services is unstoppable. Recent data indicate that 48% of enterprises are now using a cloud-based productivity & email suite, up from just 28% in 2014. More and more companies are looking at communications as an area where using cloud technology would yield substantial benefits. Here are of the four main areas where those benefits are realized:

1. Cost of Ownership

Cloud models offer both predictability via per user per month spend, and also overall reductions in TCO based on other factors like reduced maintenance, decreased burden on your IT staff, and the elimination of legacy phone lines and long distance charges. Most companies that deploy a cloud VoIP solution see an overall reduction in Total Cost of Ownership on the order of 30% compared to traditional PBX systems.

2. Simplification

Within our solution we have focused on making the management and end user experience as simple as possible. The Altus cloud solution puts you back in control, with simple portals and applications enabling you to add/remove users or features in seconds. The intuitive user interfaces allow you to take advantage of advanced unified communications capabilities, often for the first time.

3. Flexible and Mobile Working

As the workforce and business environment evolve, there is an increasing requirement to work flexibly from different locations, rather than having a set cubicle in an office. With our cloud solution you can use the solution from any location and with a large range of devices.

4. Rich Collaboration

The requirement for users to collaborate, both internally amongst themselves and externally with customers and vendors, is increasing. We offer you a rich set of collaboration tools in our UC Collaboration Bundle including: group chat, desktop sharing, and My Room Audio/Video conferencing.
