Applied Voice & Speech Technologies (AVST), a developer of enterprise communications solutions for businesses of all sizes, is extolling the virtues of unified communications.
AVST is embarking on a drive to show how businesses can effectively migrate toward unified communications for the workplace.
The company believes that across every occupation and industry, effectively dealing with the increasing communications barrage is a serious business issue and that legacy communications infrastructures can no longer handle the way businesses need to communicate.
In order to handle current communications needs, many corporations are making the move to second generation (2G) enterprise communications systems that include unified communications and unified messaging capabilities as part of their feature set.
According to AVST, the key point to remember is that the ideal 2G solution will let a company evolve at its own pace.
“An effective UC solution allows the IT manager to layer a single second-generation solution across all existing office locations and phone switches—IP and legacy,” explains AVST’s president and chief executive officer Hardy Myers.
“This reduces the management burden, provides all users with a consistent set of productivity-enhancing services and presents callers with a unified company image."
