Businesses are investing in Cloud Voice for a variety of reasons, including cost savings, mobility, scalability and the desire to shift financing from CAPEX to OPEX.
Others are taking Cloud Voice a step further – not only adopting UC as a Service (UCaaS) for its collaboration tools, but for its built-in disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) capabilities as well.
When you think of how important communications continuity is to your business, moving to UCaaS is a very smart move, especially when the platform already relies on a resilient cloud infrastructure. Trying to replicate this internally would require a redundant PBX and a duplicate cluster of UC servers at a backup location, in addition to paying monthly carrier fees to maintain network connections to that site.
Supporting Daily & Emergency Communications
When you incorporate UCaaS into your daily operations, you also cover your emergency communications. Using the same UCaaS tools for daily operations and disaster situations also means your users and IT staff won’t have to worry about getting familiar with a backup system in the middle of a crisis.
With UCaaS, no matter where you work or what device you use, you have access to the same set of collaboration and communication tools. When a local emergency shuts down your building, your team can work offsite without interruption. Communications continue seamlessly, regardless of the type or duration of the disaster.
