Universities Reap Benefits from UC

There's a reason why unified communications policies have such universal appeal. Simply put, they're the ticket to faster business.
Here's some perspective in that regard. At a 100-person company, a UC solution accomplishes the following, according to an InfographicsMania release:Google Logo
  • Saves the average worker 30 minutes a day because of the incorporation of mobile devices into the company system, and an additional 40 minutes not having to switch between different services for voicemail, faxes, etc.
  • Saves the 100-person company an average of 191 hours a day, which adds up to 49,660 hours a year, or, if you'd prefer that represented in human terms, roughly the workload of 23 additional employees. That's right - with UC, a 100-person enterprise just became a 123-person one. 

Given these benefits, it's easy to understand why so many different sectors are flocking to UC. Among these are educational institutions, which according to EdTech are realizing that the average college runs a whole lot smoother with an effectively deployed UC strategy. Consider some of these examples from the article: 

  • At Calvin College in Michigan, UC creates an easy linkage between different staff members via videoconferencing. Whereas before UC the college struggled with cumbersome videoconferencing, under its current system that process has become as easy as tying your shoes.
  • At San Jose State University in California, students can plug into lectures being delivered by experts all over the country, thanks to the telepresence technology delivered by the school's UC package. 
  • For Charter Oak State College, an online-based school in Connecticut, the need for UC is immediately apparent, since its students are remotely located. The strength of the school's UC program enables students not just to easily access lectures, but also to communicate with each other and their professors. 

The benefits of UC are everywhere, so why not jump on the bandwagon? Visit Fonality today.
