UC Management – the Coming of Age
Jim Ortbals, VP Sales, VOSS Solutions
As everyone recovers from Enterprise Connect, I wanted to take some time to reflect on what a positive experience it was for VOSS.
There are two things of note that I would like to share with you.
Firstly, the VOSS booth. We had a great location in the expo hall, and footfall was probably as good as last year, if not slightly better.
The VOSS team found it interesting that conversations at the booth were significantly more focused and less generalized, than in previous years. Companies – and I mean notable blue chip organizations – sought us out to learn more about our UC management platform and our UC migration solution. These companies came to our booth with real-life business challenges that they wanted to discuss, in the hope of finding a solution. Conversations were specific, and questions were asked about how the VOSS technology can make these organizations’ communications environments operate more efficiently and more consistently, and how to administer them and make changes more easily. For me, this showed that organizations with a unified communications and collaboration platform in place are in serious need of a UC management platform; they recognize the challenge, understand VOSS can solve the solution, and are ready to invest.
Secondly, this flurry of interest from enterprise organizations at the show dovetailed nicely into our latest product announcement. We unveiled the latest version of the VOSS-4-UC management platform which has been pre-customized to industry verticals, enabling organizations to deploy a UC management platform that has been designed to suit the needs of that specific type of business, e.g. VOSS-4-Retail / VOSS-4-Finance / VOSS-4-Healthcare / VOSS-4-Education. We also showcased our latest 2-minute video, to give a high level overview of how it works.
