Come H.O.M.E. with VOSS

Ranked #1 UC operational management vendor, VOSS provides service providers and large enterprises with the tools they need to automate the management of Cisco HCS.  

Introduction

Cisco HCS is an open architecture, so organizations can choose the UC management that best suits their needs.

The current standardized CUCDM management capabilities in Cisco HCS result in a situation where the portal does not align with all your business requirements nor does it evolve as those change. This will impact your business in a number of ways, and hinder the success of your offering:

  1. Operational costs are too high which affects margins
  2. Difficulty to compete effectively and create new innovative solutions as there is no differentiation
  3. Deals are lost as solution flexibility is not available or related costs don't scale effectively
  4. Time to revenue on deals won is poor as it takes so long to get end customers deployed
