“Wireless voice and email have dramatically enhanced the ability of organizations to provide employees with information when and where they need it.”
What’s Unified Communications?
Unified Communications (UC) integrates multiple communication modes (such as desk phones and smartphones) to allow employees to collaborate more effectively with co-workers, customers and suppliers. By extending UC to BlackBerry® smartphones with BlackBerry® Mobile Voice System (BlackBerry MVS), you can help eliminate reachability issues and allow workers to communicate as effectively away from their desks as they do at their desks.
BlackBerry MVS provides desk phone features on BlackBerry smartphones and supports voice over Wi-Fi® calling. With BlackBerry MVS, employees can be reached through one business number and calls can be logged and audited to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and legislative requirements.
To create an effective enterprise UC solution, keep in mind these key attributes:
- Encompass multiple modes of communication, including voice, video, email, chat and instant messaging
- Provide a consistent user interface and experience across desktop and mobile platforms
- Enable mobile workers to communicate as easily and effectively on the road as they can in the office
