When SAP recently released its tongue-in-cheek “Mobile 10 Commandments” for the Mobile World Congress, it got us thinking: Maybe all sorts of technology providers should do the same thing. After all, the best way for a business to mess up introducing a new form of technology is to not fully understand it. (Remember when your parents would try to program the VCR? Case in point.)
So, with that in mind, Fonality presents: The 10 Commandments of unified communications.
- Thou shalt not miss a phone call. Using a VoIP telephone system means missed calls can be a thing of the past. Out of the office? It’s easier than ever to direct incoming calls directly to your cellphone.
- Thou shalt not shout across the office. Send them an instant message. Don’t freak out everyone else in the office.
- Thou shalt not travel for business unless you absolutely need to. Using video and audio conferencing tools can drastically cut down on the cost of travel.
- Remember mobility and keep it productive. People are going to be glued to their mobile devices anyway. Put them to use by extending UC onto your employees’ smartphones and tablets.
