Companies worldwide have incorporated unified communications and consider UC to be an essential tool for efficiently running day-to-day business operaTechrader.protions. You have likely already heard about the obvious benefits of UC tools, such as enhanced productivity and cost savings, but there are benefits beyond what you’d expect.
The trend: The UC market will likely surpass $75 billion by 2020, according to a study by Grand View Research. Besides demonstrating the popularity of UC for business, this growth is so significant (up from $22.8 billion in 2011) that it is becoming standard for the workforce to expect UC modes of contact to be readily accessible.
Competitive advantage: With UC tools in place, your workers will be more productive and be able to collaborate more effectively through video conferencing and access to their work from anywhere. These improvements will add to your bottom line, as well as increase employee job satisfaction and retention.
Attracting talent: UC is critical for enabling remote work options for employees. This flexibility is something that millennials, who will make up 50 percent of the U.S. workforce by 2020 according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, look for when job hunting. According to business insights collected by Techrader.pro, millennials expect to be able to connect anytime, anywhere, whether through IMs on their smartphones or videoconferencing from a coffee shop. Businesses that delay adopting a UC solution will be less likely to attract highly desirable talent to their organizations, which will hurt their competitiveness well into the future.
