What is UCaaS?
Unified Communications as a Service integrates voice, messaging, and collaboration functions to deliver a complete, integrated communications solution. By offering an all-in-one solution from a single vendor, unified communications can help your organization, church or business stay better connected and increase productivity, while often significantly reducing costs. RingCentral Office is recognized as one of the leading providers of UCaaS. Joe Ramsay and Associates is an official RingCentral Partner and can help you migrate to RingCentral Office.
Adapting to current communication technology: VOIP
With the hype focused on social media, one of the most overlooked communication technologies in businesses and organizations is the telephone. While many organizations have adopted the use of mobile phones, few have adopted the “next big thing” in telephone technology known as “cloud-based” voice-over-internet-phone service. When your VOIP phone is cloud based, your voice communication can be integrated with other applications such as email, messaging / texting, video conferencing, conference calling and document collaboration, as well as being available across all your devices: PC, laptop, tablet and mobile phone.
What is a “cloud-based” phone service?
Cloud-based phone systems leverage the power of internet technology to bring a business or organization of any size a complete business-class enterprise phone system — with all the bells and whistles — at a fraction of the cost of traditional phone systems. You will gain many useful features while reducing your overall telephone and communication costs.
