As workers become increasingly mobile, companies need to adapt their technologies to make sure employees can remain productive from a variety of locations and devices. This shift in worker behaviors has prompted a lot of companies to invest in better Unified Communications (UC) strategies.

According to a post on the Advanced AV blog, a recent survey showed that 78 percent of IT managers have funding in place for improving UC. Dedicated budgets mean these companies are doing more than talking about the challenges presented by a mobile workforce – they're ready to make investments to keep pace with the changes.

The article touches on quite a few challenges and possibilities for the future of unified communications:

  • The ability for employees to communicate from any location and on any device is paramount.

  • Bring Your Own Device policies, while beneficial in many ways create a need for vendors to provide services that guarantee security and functionality on multiple platforms.

  • UC solutions need to include cloud-based options as well as services that work with premise-based computers and other devices.

At EventBoard, we recognize the challenges faced by companies who are improving their UC at a time when more employees are using their own devices and collaborating from different locations. That new reality for workers often isn’t compatible with a traditional office environment where everybody has their own cubicle and conference rooms are designed for eight people sitting around a table.

Staying ahead of these UC challenges requires helpful analytics about office space and conference room usage. By using tools such as our Enterprise Analytics, you can identify your exact office space, conference room and technological needs.

We believe that companies focused on UC will lead the move toward highly efficient, digital workplaces – more power to those making the commitment by investing in improved services.
