Four ways unified communications can improve productivity Part I

Today's blog will give a quick definition of unified communications and then explain reasons why this concept can lead to improved productivity in the workplace. So what is unified communications? First of all, it is more of a broad concept than any specific, concrete product or service that comes in a box.

It works to eliminate the parallel structure of our communications channels.
