BENEFITS OF UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS FOR YOUR BUSINESS
Unified Communications is a term describing the integration of business communication services such as instant messaging, presence information, audio and video calls, video conferencing, desktop/screen sharing, data sharing, call control and speech recognition with non-real-time communication services such as unified messaging (integrated voicemail, Email, SMS and fax).
