Unified Communications


Unified Messaging is the foundation for Unified Communications: the combination of e-mail, voice mail, and fax capability (UM) can be augmented with presence, instant messaging (IM), and real-time conferencing capability to expand the ways in which users can share information and communicate for a streamlined, flexible and optimized experience.

 

 

   
Connect with the right person, right now

Contact people based on their availability, and then click to communicate with them in the best way: by e-mail, Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP), instant messaging, or audio/video/Web conferencing. Access all communication with a single sign on and single inbox.

 

Connect from within Microsoft Office Outlook, Microsoft Office, and other applications you use every day.

 

Communicate securely while working away from your desk, on the road, or at home with a single, familiar client for the personal computer (PC), Web, and smart devices. Bring people together with audio, video, and Web conferencing to improve team collaboration and to reduce the monetary and environmental costs of travel.

Communicate more, spend less

Microsoft Unified Communications can quickly help organizations save costs by reducing operating costs, consolidating infrastructure, and leveraging human capital more effectively. For example, a Unified Communications solution can reduce operating costs for long distance calls, cell phone charges, conferencing service fees, travel costs, and meeting expenses.

 

Consolidate telephony, voicemail, and e-mail systems to dramatically lower maintenance and service costs, particularly for organizations with remote or branch offices. Using Software + Services, determine the best mix of on-premises and cloud-based communications solutions to meet the needs of your users and administrators.
