What Is Unified Communications?
Unified Communications (UC) is the integration of enterprise communication services via a common platform that improves, enhances, and facilitates better overall connectivity, information, and end-to-end solutions. UC service enables users to manage their communications from one platform rather than having separate systems.

Who offers Unified Communications service?
Enterprise voice communications providers, including Level365, offer UC service. The need for UC is being driven by businesses that need more than just business phone service to facilitate communication. While there is still the need for voice service, UC offers a platform that integrates other communications along with voice service.
What are some examples of Unified Communications?
Examples of UC include the ability to make and receive calls from your office phone number from either your computer or mobile device for a unified experience no matter what device you’re using. Non-voice examples include text or chat, cloud faxing, and integrated messaging including voicemail-to-email. For more examples, check out our “Top 5 Unified Communications Features” article.
What are the Top 5 Unified Communications Benefits?
You can work anytime, anywhere; you’re no longer tied to the office for voice calls or other UC platform functionality. Additionally, you can support your field workforce with communication tools that increase productivity and provide flexible options for onsite staff to work remotely from time to time.
There is no need to buy and maintain separate phone systems. Instead, you can connect multiple business locations under a single UC platform. This allows for some centralization and efficiency. Additionally, you can easily transfer calls between office locations.
There are no system capacity issues. You have the ability to expand as you grow without adding expensive equipment or maintenance costs. Because we host your phone system in the cloud and maintain the equipment, you can worry about your business and not your phone system.
You’ll have the ability to connect and integrate with CRMs, Help Desk applications, and ERP systems. Additionally, you gain access to a full sales and automation platform to improve your team’s productivity.
We offer month-to-month service with no required long-term contracts. Because of this, we earn your business every month. So, if we don’t, there are no strings attached. We also offer you low upfront costs that are typically 10 to 20% of those of traditional phone systems since there is no onsite switching equipment to purchase.
