One clients simply require a telephony solution – often called a PBX or VoIP. Other organisations are seeking to add presence, messaging, video and desktop sharing to their business processes. Products such as Skype for Business, Jabber and Spark fall into this category.

Unified Communications (UC) is a term used to indicate the integration of different forms of communications, typically including the telephone, instant messaging, video and presence. “Presence” is real-time information about the status of another person, e.g. on the phone, in a meeting, on holiday, etc.
UC has created a lot of new communications opportunities and products are available from almost all of the traditional telephony manufacturers. In addition, software suppliers such as Microsoft have launched products, in the case of Microsoft it is called Skype for Business (formally Microsoft Lync).
UC functionality is available on smart phones and tablets, creating a truly versatile proposition which can result in significant business benefit.
How you implement and benefit from UC is a key challenge. At StableLogic we help clients identify the opportunities, develop a strategy and a business case.
Selecting a replacement telephone system in the current market is a challenge. You may consider it sensible to evaluate the products and suppliers that have been well proven over the last ten years.

StableLogic work with these challenges on a daily basis. As an independent telecommunications consultancy, we understand the products and suppliers, we understand the cost model and the various advantages and limitations.
