The Quantifiable Benefits of Collaboration

    Unified communications (UC) collaboration tools reduce costs not only by reducing travel time to and from meetings, but also by making meetings more efficient, while helping users make faster decisions and resolve issues more quickly.

    While often seen as a “soft” benefit, in an expanding market, productivity enhancement can actually be translated into hard, quantifiable benefits. Here’s how:

    • Reduce lag time. Collaboration tools eliminate the minutes wasted gathering people for meetings and also allow employees to get their questions answered faster.
    • Cut your travel budget. UC collaboration tools can eliminate the need for employees to travel to internal meetings and can even help you reduce the number of external trips as well.
    • Cancel your conference call service. UC collaboration tools have audio and Web conference functionality built in.
    • You’ll never have to pay for a conference call again. Plus, they’re so easy to set up, anyone in your organization can do it on his or her own. No IT required!
