Telecommuting rose an estimated 79 percent between 2005 and 2012, making up more than 2.6 percent of the American workforce, and its growth hasn’t stopped since. The world is mobilizing quickly, and companies now realize that unified communications strategies are essential to maintaining secure, efficient, and profitable organizations. UC systems allow IT professionals to monitor and report network, database, and infrastructure issues on a variety of devices used by employees, regardless of their physical location.
“These days, the majority of IT leaders agree that not offering BYOD would place their business at a disadvantage,” writes Maggie Thill, the Director of Marketing Communications at Fonality, a business phone service. “The growth of workplace mobility fuels the need for enterprise communications. The question is: How can this communication happen in an efficient and cost-effective way?”
A strong unified communications solution addresses this by organizing, overseeing and maximizing all the communications channels in your organization. Cloud-based UC systems are increasingly becoming the norm for several reasons.
“Companies are deploying UC to improve employee productivity and response times, while reducing operational costs,” said Sean Buckley, the senior editor of FierceTelecom.
A strong UC monitoring and reporting system should be able to monitor everything from a single platform - which is what GSX provides. As experts in UC performance monitoring, we provide the market with a global platform that tracks and troubleshoots any Network, Operating System, database, or infrastructure issues that could impact the applications themselves therefore impacting the productivity of organizations.
GSX Solutions helps monitor performance by deploying quickly to scan all components impacting UC applications. Furthermore, GSX monitors every appliance and service, and their network latency as it impacts business-critical applications.
There’s no sign of BYOD and telecommuting slowing down, so it’s important for your organization to have a solid UC strategy. With a strategy in place, performance monitoring and reporting is essential to keep employees productive and organizations running efficiently and profitably.
