Today's organizations must contend with increasingly complex communications environments featuring a wide array of communications methods. Globally dispersed employees, business partners, customers, and constituents communicate with one another through infinite combinations of wired, wireless, and mobile phones; voice messaging; email messaging; fax; unified and mobile clients; and rich-media conferencing. Too often, however, these tools are not used as effectively as they could be. The results include information and device overload, lack of agility, and misdirected communications that delay decisions, slow down processes, turn customers away, and ultimately reduce productivity. Ineffective communications also results in missed revenue opportunities because businesses are not prepared to react quickly to market changes.
Cisco Unified Communications Solutions unify voice, video, data, and mobile applications on fixed and mobile networks, delivering a media-rich collaboration experience across business, government agency, and institutional workspaces. These applications use the network as the platform to enable easy collaboration every time, everywhere, so everyone's included. Organizations can collaborate in real time using advanced unified communications applications from a unified, easy-to-use interface on a variety of devices-wired or wireless. This solution saves time and helps control costs, while improving productivity and competitiveness. In a study by Sage Research, 86-percent of companies using unified communications reported that productivity benefits have grown. More than 60-percent reported savings of 3 or more hours per week for each mobile worker. Such studies confirm that migrating to a unified communications system provides a substantial return on investment (ROI) and a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
Cisco Unified Communiations can help your company efficiently access data on demand, effectively interact with virtual teams all over the world, and manage these interactions while mobile across different workspaces in real time. Every interaction is more valuable. Everyone is more efficient. All communications are more effective and secure. These capabilities allow you to excel in today's fast-paced world and give your business the agility it needs to continuously innovate and quickly adapt.
Unified Communications is made even easier with Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing. Now your organization can flexibly meet its business needs by procuring a broad range of Cisco Unified Communications applications and services on a per-user basis. Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing is an easy-to-use, affordable offering that packages client and server software, licensing, service and support, and software subscription.

The power of the network as the platform
Cisco Unified Communications solutions use the network as the platform, adding security, resilience, scalability, and intelligence to voice, video, data, and mobility services on every device everywhere. Moreover, the network architecture is also self-optimizing, self-protecting, self-healing, and application-aware, meaning system resources are allocated to maximize employee productivity and prevent downtime. Cisco also helps ensure that your organization has a clear migration path to an IP-based system and a smooth transition. You can work closely with Cisco and the partners to plan for future growth, simplify technology adoption, improve deployment time, and reduce overall costs.
