Technologies change, and communications technologies evolve as rapidly as any. But when your systems are unified, they continue to work together - now and into the future. That integration means more than keeping up with the pace of change. It means simplified management, reduced costs, and organized, effective employees. Microsoft Unified Communications encompasses your messaging, IM and presence, conferencing, and voice - in other words, the capabilities that give you the greatest headaches and that have the most visibility both within your organization and without. With Microsoft Unified Communications, everything works together in one streamlined solution; because of its integrated products and their familiar user and administrative interfaces, your entire organization is literally on the same page. Microsoft Unified Communications is provided by Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Skype for Business, which can be deployed in-house, as an externally hosted solution, or as a combination of the two approaches, depending on your organization’s needs. 

Imagine saving up to $5 million for every 1,000 employees.

Cost Savings from Unified Communications 


Beyond productivity gains, arguably the greatest benefit of a unified communications solution is the cost savings. Imagine your entire organization’s costs for travel, conferencing, telephony, cellular service, and voice mail. Now imagine saving up to US$5 million for every 1,000 employees. How?

  • Reduce your travel expenses up to 40% by replacing in-person meetings with immersive web, video, and audio conferencing.
  • Lower messaging costs up to 40% by minimizing storage costs and consolidating costly third-party solutions like mobility, archiving, backup, and more.
  • Shrink telephony and audio conferencing charges up to 40% using built-in VoIP and unified conferencing capabilities.
  • Lower real estate and facilities costs up to 40% by freeing employees from fixed desks or offices and increasing occupancy density in buildings.
  • Trim the cost of communications systems up to 50% by consolidating separate legacy voice mail with Exchange, and expensive private branch exchange, IM, and audio/video/web conferencing systems with Skype for Business.
