What does Unified Communications and Collaboration include?

The full range of unified communications and collaboration tools and applications and services include voice, voicemail, video and videoconferencing, document sharing, unified messaging, collaborative digital whiteboards, secure instant messaging, and other services spanning both realtime and non-realtime communication classes.

How does Unified Communications & Collaboration Management fit in?

The challenge of managing a complete unified communications and collaboration infrastructure, and ensuring service quality to end-users, is getting harder. Most unified communications deployments involve multiple solutions, vendors, interfaces, and management methodologies, which leads to extraordinary complexity and higher costs: e.g. the costs required to troubleshoot problems, introduce new features, reconfigure systems, and manage user onboarding/offboarding. A UC management platform such as VOSS Automate provides a central point of control over the UC environment, to make it faster, easier, and less costly to execute any given task, respond to any given problem, or scale to support new services or higher headcount.A UC management platform means that your UC environment can be fully flexible and customizable with a centralized management view.
