5 Reasons Hosted Collaboration Works for You

bigstock The words Next Big Thing on a  46760632 (1) resized 600Today’s technological trends offer a number of opportunities for collaboration and streamlining of your IT business processes. One of the most powerful value propositions in this area has to do with unified communications and collaboration. UC&C lets you get the right data to the right people at the right time. It allows you to collaborate with various stakeholders both inside and outside of your organization.

Here are seven of the top reasons you should consider hosted collaboration for your organization today:

  1. Deployment flexibility. In the recent past, communications infrastructure had to be implemented in a case by case basis. Every branch office and remote office had their own PBX, their own voice mail and their own features. As more and more organizations migrate to an IP communications base, this model becomes much more limiting in its flexibility. A hosted solution gives flexibility to the entire organization in terms of deployment, wherever the end user may be located.
  2. Centralized management and administration. Premise-based applications have scaling administrative tasks and functions that management has to account for. This includes things like user management, profile changes, software patches and more. The process is replicated at every premise, creating greater overhead and greater margin of error. Hosted collaboration brings all of these tasks into a centralized location, and changes that take place can be made companywide without all of the extra overhead.
  3. Cost efficiency. Hosted collaboration offers a lower barrier to entry, the ability to more accurately plan budgets, a lower overall Total Cost of Ownership than traditional models, and greater efficiency in the areas of IT staffing and IT resources.
  4. Greater business continuity. Disaster recovery and business continuity are critical in today’s worldwide, 24x7 marketplace. Collaborative applications must be made to be available whenever and wherever a worker is located. Because hosted solutions aren’t tied to one specific geographic location, they offer a greater degree of reliability in the event of disaster.
  5. Agility. Traditional deployments take time and resources, and must be planned well in advance. Hosted collaboration services let the IT department meet the needs of the organization’s business leaders faster and more efficiently than ever before.

If you’re not yet using hosted collaboration, now may be the time to take a look.
